Matthew Van Slembrouck, mine planning engineer at Levy, says: “One of my chief responsibilities is looking over the land on our work sites. It’s crucial that I understand the topography and site conditions because, among other reasons, having an accurate inventory helps improve our bottom-line. Kespry has been a game-changer for our inventory audits and adjustments, and the drones have made our works sites significantly safer in multiple ways.”
Van Slembrouck and his team pilot the Kespry drones to gain topographic analysis of their work sites, which Kespry says results in accurate data and improves site safety.
Many construction and facilities companies contract with third parties for inventory audits, which introduces a range of potential risk exposure due to the contractors’ unfamiliarity with the sites.
Levy eliminates a number of potential risk factors with the Kespry drones, the company adds.
Levy now has two Kespry drones, which the team pilots nearly every day to inspect the sites and conduct inventory audits.
