In today’s litigious society, technology, equipment, and cost of construction loans, where time is money and construction is fast-paced to meet demanding completion deadlines to get a project built and into operation, photographic images are an important part of the documentation process. Many projects are on a fast-track schedule. Plus we cannot exclude the many groups who keep a watchful eye out for something to go wrong as the project progresses.The IMPORTANCE in keeping excellent records of the project activities and progress, which now includes visual data, is an absolute must to protect against any type of claim which can arise before, during or after project completion. Especially in the complexity of a construction project where one process or sub-contractors timely performance is very dependent on another.

A few specific uses include: Stored materials documentation, Delivery date confirmations, Verifications of % completion, and use for Project meetings to verify and/or modify specific situations which arise.

The images we provide, create clear, crisp detail, that accurately document specific intervals in the construction time line. In many instances, over the years of providing this service, we find time and time again, that contractors and architects use these aerials to solve a dispute about the project, which is causing harm to the project time line, and overall profit from the job. One photo can and has saved thousands of dollars on a project.

Additional Benefits…
Progress photography serve to show contractors, architects, engineers, owners, EPA, neighborhood organizations, protest groups, zoning, city commissions and investors — often thousands of miles away — how the construction is progressing. This helps planning for upcoming requirements during the life cycle of the project. The images also show your equipment at work and guard against consequential damages which harm the completion time-line and final profit. From a legal standpoint, the photography can also identify reasons why a project might be running behind–they will show snow, flooding, and other situations hindering progress such as subs not preforming on time

Architects, engineers, and subcontractors can utilize the benefits of the photographic documentation for analysis of their work on the project. The photographs are an excellent tool to study project delivery systems and look for ways to increase efficiency and productivity.

Ground photography is used when greater detail is needed to document specific areas of activities during the construction process. In cases where the contractors create their own digital images, Eagle’s Eye can make quality prints of the digital images. Color enlargements are a great way to display your equipment at work when making your proposals on future bids, displaying images in the conference room, or showing current work at a trade show display.

Many contractors order a final image and prints, titling the project to give to those who worked on the project for their portfolios.
We are flexible when special photographic needs arise and can adjust our flight schedule around local weather conditions. We can also easily accommodate special flight request.
