Leitchfield City Council considering using construction photography company during renovation of Rite Aid building

At Monday night’s Leitchfield City Council meeting, council members heard from a representative of Multivista about using the company’s construction progress photography during the renovation of the old Rite Aid building into a new Leitchfield PD headquarters and City Hall.

Multivista is a construction photo documentation company and full-service construction site photography provider. Multivista’s online platform gives instant access to a complete photographic record of the construction project anytime, anywhere, according to the company’s website. All photos of the project are available in inspection-grade detail, and indexed according to the project plans by location and date.

Multivista’s measurable 3D Images give users the ability to remotely measure length and depth with high levels of accuracy, according to the company. Powered by the professional-grade BLK3D Imager, these highly accurate measurable images document critical infrastructure with precision.

Trained Multivista construction photographers capture comprehensive measurable 3D images of the job site, link them to interactive project plans, and make them available from anywhere using Multivista’s cloud-based platform.

Multivista representative Ernest Wrentmore said the company has participated in several jail expansions around the state, including detention centers in Rowan County, Laurel County and most recently Oldham County. The company also photographed the progression of the construction of the football field and track project at Clark County High School.

The company has worked on over 40 construction projects at the University of Kentucky and is currently involved in over 100 construction developments in Kentucky, Wrentmore said.

The cost of the service for the renovation of the Rite Aid building is $9,100.

Council members are studying the proposal and will likely decide on whether to use the service at the next regularly scheduled meeting on May 6.

Currently, Leitchfield Utilities is also considering using the service during the construction of the new Leitchfield Water Treatment Plant.
