Kokosing started from a single acre of land in the 1950s. Now 3 million cubic yards is considered a small job. This construction company does everything from airports to water treatment plants, regularly working at a 3-21 million cubic yard site scale. For Kokosing, knowing their site is an integral part of planning, reporting, and building. This knowledge is what sets them apart.
We started looking at new technology in this process for speed and accuracy. The LIDAR surveys we’ve used in the past…they’re typically very expensive and it takes a lot of time to get done. A particular LIDAR survey may take up to a month to get the data results. We would like something more real time.
When compared to the new technologies, drone flights report out data much quicker. Sometimes the very next day. That gives us the flexibility to be able to track it more closely and monitor it more efficiently. It allows us to make adjustments in real time instead of being a month or two down the road, if not further.
Working with Identified Technologies has been very successful. Our experience with the four-propeller system so far is a relatively quick process. In and out. The accuracy and timeliness of the data has proven to be very good. They seem to be on the leading edge of everything we’ve seen. We’ve made the right choice so far.
