Edmond Nonie’s father built a house in Sierra Leone whilst teaching as a lecturer abroad and during this process, he lost thousands of dollars to unscrupulous contractors. This gave birth to the idea of developing a service that made that story a thing of the past.
About Track Your Build
Track Your Build is the leading service in Sierra Leone for land and construction surveying using drones. They have become experts in topographical mapping for crisis and response.
Track Your Build was launched with the aim of providing reliable, transparent and cost-saving service to monitor construction on behalf of clients living overseas. After realizing that drones have become a superior tool for land surveying where GPS points and various land measurements could be taken with more accuracy, they began using drones as tools to improve the pictorial updates of building progress.
On the 14th of August, 2017, Sierra Leone was ravaged by a series of landslides with the most terrible occurring at the Mount Sugarloaf mountain complex. The UN country team called the Track Your Build team to provide mapping support for the response efforts. Over a period of 3 weeks, they mapped 9 sites and provided risk assessment images and videos for an additional 5 sites. Their work was instrumental in reducing the damage of the landslides by providing the ground-truth data needed to back up the Satellite maps generated by the UN.
Currently, Track Your Build is operational in Sierra Leone and Nigeria.
