Windsor Commercial – 4th and Green, a construction project in downtown Winston Salem, sought to enhance its job site monitoring and progress visualization capabilities for the residential construction project. To achieve this, they turned to Evercam, for reality capture solutions which were not only  instrumental in improving project management but also provided valuable timelapse footage for marketing purposes.

Projected Outcomes

While the project is still underway, Windsor Commercial anticipates that Evercam’s technology will help them to:

  • Monitor the job site more efficiently
  • Use video archives for insightful reviews of the project and incidents
  • Enhance progress reporting to stakeholders and team members

Over the past few decades, we’ve used at least a half dozen different webcam services.  While Evercam is by far the most versatile and best quality I’ve seen, it is their customer service that really sets them apart.  They have remained engaged with us continually through our project and often touch base with us offering their assistance through which we have learned more about the great options they offer.   Their high quality time lapse recordings have helped us to provide critical documentation to the local authorities which has bolstered our reputation as a builder and developer in downtown Winston Salem.  Thanks Evercam, for being a great partner with us!
