How Tech Drives Collaboration for McCarthy

Collaboration has always been the cornerstone of any jobsite. Many construction companies are finding that photos and video documentation are a great way to quickly and effectively share information. As technology progresses, more workers are realizing that collaboration is more than just a tool for traditional project documentation and progress.

McCarthy Building Companies has discovered tremendous success using a combination of standard flat photos and 360 photos, and leveraging that with a photo and video documentation solution. The technology is a complete construction documentation tool that can be used by the entire project team.

Established back in 1864, McCarthy Building Companies has a rich history of providing quality and safety to its clients. It aims to ease maintenance throughout time and help its customers reach both short-term and long-term strategic goals. Leveraging technology enables it to drive efficiency and improve collaboration.

The system from StructionSite allows users to walk around a jobsite while recording videos. Once uploaded, the technology automatically tracks and stitches a path on a floor plan, allowing a project team to visit any location along that path.

For McCarthy Building Companies, the use of 360 photography enables teams to produce good documentation that captures key milestones in the project.

While this is one example, a number of construction companies are leveraging photo and video documentation solutions in order to improve collaboration across a project and worksites throughout the country.
