“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
This creed is often associated with the United States Postal Service, but it’s also an apt description of the construction camera that sits atop the hospital roof and looks down on Akron Children’s $200 million building project.
For the next several years a high-resolution camera will be snapping a photo of the construction site every 15 minutes. Captured with each image is the temperature, humidity, visibility and wind speed.
The images are also compiled into a time-lapse movie showing the progress of the construction.
The camera, enclosed in a weather-sealed box, is only tethered by an electrical cord. It went live April 30.
