CenterPoint Uses Drone Technology to Enhance Real Estate Development

CenterPoint Integrated Solutions, LLC (“CPIS”) is under contract to develop approximately 1.5-acres of unimproved land in Lakewood, CO.  The proposed development will be approximately 18,000 square feet (“SF”) of retail and office product, including a rooftop patio.  CPIS is marketing full service restaurant users as an anchor tenant.  The tenant would occupy the western endcap of the retail building and would also have access to an approximate 2,000 SF rooftop patio with second floor enclosed bar.  Prospective tenants liked the location but were concerned the 2nd floor patio would not attract customers. The users could not envision the views as no other 2nd story buildings or patios are in the submarket.

Providing an answer to the “is there a view worth paying for” question, CPIS contracted Hawk Aerial to take pictures using a drone equipped with high definition cameras.  The drone was brought to the project site and took pictures from each end cap location of the proposed mixed-use building.  Pictures were taken at 20-feet above ground surface facing east, south and west to document actual views from the future second story retail and patio spaces.  The photographs were well received by end users and investors alike and helped pushed the project forward.

Over $400,000 Saved by CenterPoint Integrated Solutions

Over $400,000 saved in site preparation and grading costs by CenterPoint Integrated Solutions, LLC (“CPIS”).  In late 2015 CPIS was contracted by our client to deliver a highly visible pad ready site in Waterbury, CT. The site was strategically located to achieve our client’s growth and expansion goals. The challenge, the site needed a massive amount of earthwork, over 100,000 cubic yards (“CY”) cut to fill, to gain the maximum usable area.  CPIS developed a plan and scope that included:

  • Coordinating with federal and local environmental agencies and officials, to integrate environmental and soil contamination issues and wetlands permitting to obtain project approval.
  • Performing earthwork early and during winter months to take advantage of cheaper contractor pricing and fuel discounts.
  • Improving site layout to gain nearly 0.5-acres of developable land.
  • Integrating the removal and processing of over 50,000 CY of rock material for export.

Through innovative project management by CPIS, the rough pad will be delivered to our client this summer, shaving 2-3 months off our client’s schedule.  The original contract award was $3.5-million.  CPIS saved our client over $400,000 or 11.5% of original budget.
