DENVER, CO (November 7, 2017) – Measure, the largest U.S. provider of drone services for enterprise customers, today announced its first franchise location in Colorado with the opening of Measure Denver. Headquartered in Castle Rock, the local Measure office provides businesses in the metropolitan area with faster, safer and less expensive infrastructure inspection services through the use of drone technology.
The franchise’s initial focus is on the Denver area’s rapidly growing construction, telecommunications and renewable energy sectors. For the construction industry, the company provides drone-based pre-construction surveys of new sites, monitoring of construction progress, and stockpile and earthworks measurements at a fraction of the cost of traditional survey methods. The firm can also perform aerial inspections of both the cell tower structures and wireless carrier equipment installed on them for telecommunications companies, and detect malfunctioning, damaged or improperly installed solar PV panels that may be reducing energy output and associated revenues for solar power generation facilities.
Each industry-specific solution was developed by Measure’s corporate team, proven through thousands of completed missions, and standardized to ensure safe, legal and insured flights as well as accurate data capture. Measure Denver utilizes all of the parent company’s processes and procedures as well as its best-in-class drone technology, giving Denver-area businesses local access to the expertise of the leading national drone services team.
“Denver is an exceptionally strong market for Measure’s drone services. With its large telecommunications industry, the 23% jump in construction project value from 2015 to 2016, and the 70% increase in Colorado solar capacity in 2016 along with Colorado’s renewable energy mandate, there are scores of local businesses that can benefit by switching from manned inspections to aerial imaging,” said Measure Denver president, CEO and co-owner Jason Hatt, a long-time remote control hobbyist with a 20+-year background in information technology. “By working with us, they can take advantage of drone technology without the time, expense and experienced personnel required to manage their own drone programs.”
“We have built Measure’s business in part by creating a nationwide network of drone pilots for enterprise clients, but having a presence in major metropolitan areas like Denver is essential for providing service at the local level,” said Dan Rothfeld, Measure Senior Vice President of Franchising. “Franchisees like Jason and Jessica Hatt and their chief pilot Rhett Nisson are helping us establish that local channel and strategically expand the commercial use of drones to help companies more efficiently gather the data they need to optimize operations.”
