Case Study

Tempe Town Lake Dam

In the face of constructing a state-of-the-art steel dam consisting of massive gates weighing over a quarter-million pounds each, PCL Construction, one of North America’s largest contracting organizations, sought a robust solution to ensure safety, security, and efficiency throughout the project. To address potential challenges, including unpredictable weather events and equipment loss, PCL turned to TrueLook Construction Cameras.

“TrueLook camera footage can also be used to help PCL satisfy audit requirements from various regulatory agencies, such as the Arizona Department of Water Quality, the Army Corps of Engineers, FEMA and the Flood Control District of Maricopa County,” said Adam Gordon, Special Projects Manager, PCL.

Project Goals:

  • Ensure safety, security, and efficiency during the construction of the steel gate dam.
  • Track project progress accurately to stay on schedule and within budget.
  • Monitor weather conditions, prevent equipment loss, and document the project for compliance and stakeholder updates.

The Results:

  • Curated an accurate visual history log of the project using custom, unlimited time-lapse photography.
  • The recorded videos and images provided essential information for stakeholder updates, ensuring effective communication and decision-making.
  • Easily monitored weather-related delayed and monitored spillover from the existing dam.
