CAPTURING CONSTRUCTION
EXCELLENCE​

The History of 4Blades

Founded in 2018, Calvin started 4Blades Digital recognizing there was (and is) a significant need in the Construction Industry to better document jobsites. As a Project Manager in the industry, Calvin was constantly hounding his teams to take more pictures of the jobsite and provide better documentation for the inevitable “what ifs” that come up in construction. What started as a need to
better document jobsites quickly turned into a way to provide content for the marketing teams simultaneously. Therein lies what 4Blades Digital is all about – vertically integrating media and documentation into the Construction Industry and providing useful and fun content for the onsite teams, the marketing teams, and to showcase the Construction Industry in the best light possible.

Popular Services

We understand that reliability and trust are the foundation to a long lasting partnership between us and our clients. With 20+ years of general contracting experience, we know what to bring to an active construction site, what PPE to wear, how to interact in an active construction zone, and when discretion is needed.

Construction Photo Documentation

Elevate your construction projects with drone photography services. Capture high-resolution aerial images and video to document progress, aid in inspections, showcase unique architectural design, and showcase your jobsite.

Pre-Construction Photography

Utilize the power of high-resolution aerial photography and videography, 360 photography, and more, to document your project prior to groundbreaking. Make sure every crack in every sidewalk is covered and properly documented to avoid costly repairs that are out of scope at the end of your project.

Final Project
Photography

Showcase your project in the best light possible with handheld and aerial professional final photography at project completion. We work with you through FF&E and tight TCO/CO turnovers to get in and out when you need us as quickly as possible.

Drone Surveying & Mapping

Capture your site using orthographic mapping to get real-time data on the topography and cut/fill data of your jobsite or development down to 1/4 of an inch in accuracy. Capture PT Tendons prior to slab placement and get accurate data on underground layout in hours, not days.

360 Photo Capturing

Never worry about missing a single in-wall MEPF penetration or piece of backing prior to drywall, never worry about missing any stockpiles, trenches, or material deliveries with 360 photo capturing. 360 photography ensures that nothing is out of frame and nothing is missed.

Construction Branding & Marketing

Develop your brand and culture by showcasing what you do. Whether you’re looking to advertise on social media with commercial-quality video, or looking to update your team’s headshots, or to capture a company event; we are here to help.

I've been working with 4 Blades for almost a year to provide site photos and month progress videos. The quality of their work is top notch and timely. 4 Blades services go way beyond providing pretty pictures. The value that 4 Blades provides by overlaying my drawings with the aerial photos of my project is hard to over estimate. This allows me to document the layout of my PT slabs and verify that slab penetrations are located correctly in the slabs and will come up in the walls. Avoiding one big mistake on a project more than justifies the small premium for their services.

4Blades Digital brings a completely different realization to the industry and allows for those people who don't understand the workmanship very well to see it in real time. The results from each site visit are in your email inbox every day before the end of the day and that delivery is hard to find now a days. We have nothing but good things to say about 4Blades and their team.

We hired 4Blades for some interior and exterior photography & videography for our bar and music venue in RiNo and Calvin made the whole process extremely easy from the start. He is very communicative and ensures your finished product is exactly what you want before sending you over your final package. We will absolutely be hiring Calvin and 4Blades for future projects and would recommend them to anyone else looking for superb quality service and product.

Our team of commercial real estate brokers have worked with Calvin Ludwig of 4 Blades Digital for over a year. He and his team have consistently provided high quality images and video for us as well as our clients to use on websites, brochures and poster boards. They’ve been very accommodating of every single one of our requests whether they’re for locations west of Colorado Springs or for last minute shots on a summer’s evening, on a weekend or even over a holiday weekend. 4 Blades’ pricing is also very competitive, which also weighs heavily in our decision to work with a vendor. We highly recommend their services. – Tabatha W., Broker Specialist, Cushman & Wakefield
