The 5-Minute Guide to Construction Photo Documentation
August 17th, 2021
Manual jobsite photo documentation for construction is time-consuming, clunky, and often an ineffective way to record jobsite progress over time. Photos inevitably end up buried in a tangle of folders and logins. You might need to find a single photo among hundreds for a big OAC meeting and then realize it’s lost, or that you never took it in the first place.
Automated 360° photo documentation for construction is faster, easier, and way more powerful. 360˚ captures generate a full Google Street View-style record of the job site. That level of insight into progress makes it significantly easier to catch problems, keep a visual record for the lifetime of the project and the building, and share comprehensive updates with stakeholders remotely.
There are a few best practices you’ll want to follow, and in this free guide, we’ll walk you through all of them. Here are the five steps to better construction photo documentation:
- Choose the right type of camera.
- Capture images like a pro.
- Set a schedule to walk the job site.
- Get buy-in from your team.
- Become a power user of your 360˚ photo platform.
The goal is to equip you with reality capture tools for better organization and faster job site capture so you can get time back, provide more transparency to stakeholders, and avoid rework.
