Garmann Miller reached new heights after recently investing in new equipment: a DJI Matrice 300 with a Zenmuse P1 camera. In layman’s terms, a drone. This high-tech device has capabilities to map project sites, create mesh models and point clouds, and perform inspections. Additionally, the drone allows the team to capture project photography from a bird’s eye view.
This equipment wouldn’t have a place within the firm however without a pilot to take the lead. BIM Manager Randy Groff recently earned an Airman Certificate for Small Unmanned Aircraft System through the Federal Aviation Administration. Garmann Miller celebrates this achievement that came from Randy successfully passing a rigorous exam.
“Every question seemed like a trick question,” Groff remarked. “It really got you thinking about all scenarios that could happen when flying.”
This new equipment hasn’t been used yet for GM’s clients, but Groff recently tested its capabilities around the Minster office.
“It’s an honor to be trusted with the firm’s new equipment, and I’m excited to be a part of this new service we have to offer,” he said.
