Documenting the Construction Process
The construction process of Bitcoin mining captured from a drone is alway impressive. This photograph was captured by Chad Everett Harris using the DJI Mavic 3 Cine drone.

Documenting the construction process is an integral part of any construction project. It involves creating a written record of the various steps involved in the construction process, including planning, design, and execution. This documentation can serve multiple purposes, including providing a reference for future projects, ensuring that all necessary steps are completed, and providing evidence of compliance with building codes and other regulations.

There are several critical components to documenting the construction process. First, creating a detailed project plan outlining all the steps involved in the construction process is crucial. This plan should include the schedule, budget, and other relevant information. It should also include a clear definition of roles and responsibilities for all construction team members.
Next, keeping detailed records of all aspects of the construction process is important. This can include things like daily logs, photographs, and other documentation. It is also essential to keep track of any changes to the project plan and any challenges or issues that arise during the construction process.

Finally, it is essential to review and update the documentation regularly. This can help ensure that the construction process stays on track and that any changes or issues are addressed promptly. Regular reviews and updates can also help identify potential problems before they become major issues and help the construction team stay organized and efficient.
In summary, documenting the construction process is essential to any construction project. It involves creating a detailed project plan, keeping detailed records, and regularly reviewing and updating the documentation. This can help ensure that the project stays on track and provide valuable reference material for future projects.

Documenting My Process

Documenting the how a Bitcoin mining facility is built is easily communicated to people in the visual format or I should say it’s how I best communicate. Everyday as part of my process, I take photographs and videos of Riot Blockchain’s 700 MW data center in Rockdale, Texas.

Each day starts the same exact way :

  • Grab Coffee at the corner store
  • Ask Shadow if he’s ready to run
  • Make the lap around the outside of the site
  • Get George and Shadow settled in for the morning
  • Grab my drones
  • Make Magic Happen
  • Download
  • Upload
  • Drink my now cold coffee

I find that being consistent with documenting the construction process of Bitcoin mining keeps me focuses each day.
