They pride themselves on utilizing the most recent technology available on the market, to maintain their competitive edge in order to provide clients with the most proficient and cost-effective designs.
Their latest customer, Avenir, is creating one of the most innovative developments to happen to Palm Beach County in a generation. A 4,752-acre sustainable community located in prestigious Palm Beach Gardens with 3,900 new homes, a resort-style clubhouse, a working farm, dedicated golf cart paths, spacious dog parks, and over 300 acres of lakes and waterways.
In this second episode in the series, the aerial surveying team from Caulfield & Wheeler Inc. embarks on their second day of flying for the Avenir development project. Despite challenges from a nearby airport and railway, their missions have been successful thus far. With the help of the reliable TrueView 635 sensor and the power of aerial lidar, they can efficiently gather extensive data that field crews wouldn’t otherwise be able to access. This technology not only saves time but also provides an unparalleled level of detail. As they wrap up their mission today, the team is confident in the data collected and looks forward to processing it for the project managers.
See how they navigate these challenges on Down to Earth: Point Clouds to Paradise by Microdrones with Andrew Beckwith, Director of Special Projects & UAS Operations, Jason Cloninger, UAS Pilot and Lidar Technician, both of Caulfield and Wheeler Inc.
