  • Support schedule and budget management by comparing plans to progress. 

  • Survey job sites to check embankment slopes, area size, and cut-and-fill volumes.

  • Monitor job sites to spot safety hazards with aerial surveys of equipment and materials.

  • Use thermal imaging (non-invasive technology) to detect and identify anomalies hidden beneath surfaces. 

  • Tag and measure structures using high-resolution bird's eye and oblique imagery.

  • Enhance project reporting and marketing content with high-resolution aerial photos and video.

Frost Tower // San Antonio, Texas


The Frost Tower broke ground in downtown San Antonio in March 2017. White Cloud was contracted by Weston Urban and KDC, the two companies tasked with the development of the construction, to document the progress on a bi-monthly basis through the completion of the building in mid-2019. White Cloud provided a minimum of 25 fully edited, high-resolution aerial photos that were used for marketing assets and presentation collateral for construction leadership, investors, and potential tenant acquisition. Additionally, White Cloud provided a minimum of 5 minutes of high-resolution 4K aerial video to accompany the measures taken to assess safety and security protocols.

Located at 111 W Houston Street, the Frost Tower is now an iconic addition to the San Antonio skyline. Designed by world-renowned Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, the tower offers 460,000 sf of Class A++ office and retail space surrounded by beautiful parks and a walkable urban environment.

The Soto // San Antonio, Texas


The Soto is one of the most anticipated builds in downtown San Antonio. White Cloud provided both ground and aerial photographs and progress videos to Structure Craft, the leading contractor in developing the mass timber portion of the construction. The photos and videos serve to document the phases of the build and provide marketing assets for their portfolio. 

Pugh Constructors // Mission Concepcion, San Antonio, Texas


White Cloud's photographer has been assisting Pugh Constructors since mid-2019 as they maintain and renovate the San Antonio Missions (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Each quarter, Pugh Constructors hires us to provide ultra-high-resolution photos of each Mission. The photographs serve as at-the-moment documentation of each Mission, which is then reviewed and analyzed by the architects involved in the maintenance and renovations.
