Clark County URM App

Clark County, NV Unreinforced Masonry Survey App

Challenge — The Clark County, NV Department of Building and Fire Prevention, Engineering Services needed to survey the inventory of their unreinforced masonry structures throughout the county. This entailed physical building inspections across a wide range of remote desert to urban landscapes using paper surveys. The paper surveys were later entered into an Excel spreadsheet. They needed a better solution for the collection and storage of this data.

Outcome — Mortimer Smythe proposed the development of a field survey mobile app that communicates with their cloud-hosted database. This enabled the field surveyors to receive assignments, get directions to the building location, and complete and submit their survey while online or offline (out of data connection). Mortimer Smythe continues to support their operations with regular app updates.
