Bio

B-8 Drone is a new business launched in 2018 to serve the growing intersection of need and technology within the construction market.  B-8 Drone supplies full service visual reality capture for construction job sites.

B-8 Drone is new, but backed by significant business experience.  Founder, owner and licensed drone pilot Bart Biche brings over 40 years of business experience to B-8 Drone.  With a broad based background that includes sales/marketing, degreed mechanical engineer, product development, CAD knowledgeable, PMP certified project manager and experience in operations and production.  Bart has the experience to understand your problems and help make your next project successful.

"After over 40 years of working in industry, I decided that it was time to start my own venture, one that interested and excited me and one that took advantage of my accumulated experience.  I saw opportunity in the growing integration of technology into the construction market.  I believe that visual reality capture is a vital piece for increasing construction efficiency and started with the fastest growing technology – drones.  But drones can’t see inside buildings and don’t solve the entire problem.  Therefore 360° photography and an intuitive data management system were added.  I believe that B-8 Drone supplies a fully integrated solution to visual reality capture for the construction market.”
