TrueLook’s Best of 2016 Construction Projects

Last year was a busy one for TrueLook, and our construction cameras were used by numerous firms of some high-profile projects. Here’s a summary of some of the best and most exciting project completions.

state-of-the-art steel dam under construction

Tempe Dam

Tempe-based PCL Construction was contracted to build a state-of-the-art steel dam consisting of seven gates, each 106 feet long, 17 feet tall and weighing 260,000 pounds. The firm decided to use TrueLook construction cameras to help track project progress, and stay on-schedule and on-budget.

The dam is now the largest hydraulically-operated steel gate dam system in the country. The steel gate system will provide flood control to make Tempe safer and enable development, and transform a previously dry riverbed into a beautiful, relaxing community gathering place.

large modern hospital under construction

Northside Hospital Forsyth

The Northside Hospital Forsyth hospital in Cumming, GA added three new floors, including two patient floors, to accommodate surgical and oncology patient needs. TrueLook 12MP fixed-position cameras were deployed across the jobsite.

The project brings the hospital’s inpatient bed count to 247 (previously 231) and the total number of beds, including observation, to 325. Now standing eight floors high, the 77, 975 square-foot building is the tallest in the county.

Fore River Bridge

Burkehalter needed to transport the lift span portion of a bridge from an assembly yard to its final location for on-site assembly. This 1,500 ton structure had to navigate multiple obstacles in transporting, including being jacked-up 70’ above water level.

The lifting, rigging and transport company used TrueLook12MP fixed-position cameras for time-lapse footage of the project.

Ronald McDonald opened its third house, steps from Nemours Children’s Hospital, in Lake Nona. The facility has 15 bedrooms with private bathrooms, a resident’s kitchen and dining area, a meeting room and other amenities—including a landscaped backyard with gardens and a playground.

The construction firm used TrueLook 5PM fixed-position cameras to track and document project status through completion.
