WSSI provides reality capture for monthly construction monitoring across this 775 single-family home community on 800 acres in eastern Loudoun County, Virginia. Remote access to track progress on this large investment is pivotal for their success.

The Challenge

The Hartland project has four different home builders working in multiple phases, with various levels of construction occurring across the site. Our client needs to stay up to date on the activities and progress on site for this significant investment.

Our Solution

WSSI provides a unique form of aerial imagery so our client can continuously monitor onsite construction and infrastructure development. In order to capture the site in its entirety, WSSI acquires 360ׄ° aerial imagery at an altitude of 400’ above ground level (AGL). This altitude provides a viewshed of the project location that viewers can utilize to visually understand the project’s status and progress. WSSI processes the imagery and develops it into virtual site that allows our client to access the imagery online via PC, tablet, or smartphone. WSSI updates the virtual site with new imagery every month to capture ongoing progress. The virtual site is equipped with two interactive features: a dropdown box and a site navigation map. The dropdown box allows users to select the date of the imagery they are currently viewing. This allows viewers to review past site conditions and visually understand the progress occurring onsite. The site navigation feature allows users to travel to different photo locations on the site. The locations are overlayed onto a PDF of the Hartland development and employs a radar feature to show users what way you are currently facing within the 360° imagery. This site not only organizes the imagery and provides access to users throughout Hines in the office and field but will provide a visualization of the project’s lifespan.
