OxBlue, a leader in the construction camera industry, announced Monday that their construction camera system is supporting the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando, Florida with Balfour Beatty Construction supervising the project. With a camera positioned on top of CNL Tower I in downtown Orlando, users can access a wide-angle, 12-megapixel view of the entire active construction site for the center. Through online access, users can zoom in and pan the jobsite, where construction began in June 2011.
“This construction webcam access is yet another way to engage the community with what is happening with the project,” said Dr. Phillips Center President Kathy Ramsberger. “Whether driving past the construction site or viewing it on our website, everyone can now observe and be a part of the project’s construction milestones.”
While a solid tool for public relations and marketing, OxBlue construction cameras, at their core, facilitate effective coordination and communication of all construction activities. Balfour Beatty Construction, functioning as construction manager for the project, highlighted how they are using the OxBlue camera to oversee all jobsite activities. “We are using the OxBlue camera as a tool to record the construction process,” said Rick Romoser, senior project manager for Balfour Beatty Construction. “We use it on a weekly basis to help us monitor our schedule and reconfirm activity start dates and finish dates.”
OxBlue construction cameras provide extremely high-resolution image quality with flexible cellular transmission. All camera hardware, cellular data connections, servers, software and professional time-lapse video production expertise are provided as one complete package.
Stage 1 of the project will be completed in 2014, and everyone in the community and those working on the project can access it 24 hours a day, every day, at http://drphillipscenter.org/progress/webcam.
