Think your project might be too small? Imagewerx.us has provided aerial imaging for residential homeowners, roofing companies, solar companies, and small local builders. If you’re not sure about the scope of your project, feel free to request a quote so our team can help guide you.
What is the typical duration of a project?
Just as with many things these days, “typical” is a word that’s project-specific. Projects can be anywhere from a single day to three years or longer. Imagewerx.us works with our clients to ensure that you get what you need from each assignment. Construction progress assignments, generally begin just before groundbreaking and end once the construction project is complete. This allows clients to view the project’s progress through the various phases. Most sites are photographed monthly or bi-monthly. There are some projects that are photographed weekly, and sometimes my clients just want one single session.
Do you focus on any particular industries or projects?
No – our focus is on our customers, not their industries. Imagewerx.us is happy to work with clients that are part of any industry on projects of all sizes. Our location at Centennial Airport just south of Denver allows us quick access to runways so we can get to your site, wherever it may be. Imagewerx has provided aerial photography in 20 states in 2015. Feel free to browse our diverse client list.
How do you determine the cost of a project?
Cost is mostly based on location. Imagewerx.us has photographed many sites in surrounding states. Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and Oregon. We’re always happy to talk to you about a quote, so feel free to contact us with any questions, no matter what phase you’re in with your project or location.
