"One six nine AM seven forty KCBS KCBS news time, six twenty one. The San Francisco skyline is now dotted with more and more skyscrapers, but how can workers get up to the top of the outside of the buildings to safely inspect them while drones to the rescue a small aircraft are now with high def cameras and are the latest high tech trend for building inspections to find out more about this. We are going to turn to the KCBS ringcentral news on and speak with San Francisco. Chronicle business reporter Rowland Lee. He wrote about it in today's paper. How wide spread did you find the use of drums for this type of inspection in San Francisco? Hi, thanks so much for having me. No health risk power power. Were the two men examples. I saw the city's public utilities commission is also using it for infrastructure infection. Those are the main areas, but the other two of the tallest building. So there are companies out there that are specializing in this. Right. They're they're working with big skyscrapers like those that you've mentioned been putting together programs that they offer them. Interesting aware was one of the companies actually do that software part of it. So they program the flight as route and take photos, but then they actually work with different companies. So he's gotta when I talked to was drone deploy and they do operations. They actually actually hire the pilots around the country to do it. So this kind of both operations companies company. Did you get a sense if it's something it's a trend that's going to to spread. I mean, I don't know what the cost breakdown is how expensive I guess, I I guess that would be the deciding factor to do inspections this way as opposed to. I guess you you put people down on some of those window washer does the window washer contraptions, I guess for lack of a better word. Yeah. Yeah. There's also another example. You can actually rappel down the side of the building with a rope, which is the the other option right now. But definitely pretty dangerous too. So how do we said that it costs tens of thousands of dollars to do their program? And it's about a third of the cost of building a full platform window washers use. So that was the main selling point, you know, about a third of the cost and also much safer to do this. These things the drones are becoming heavily regulated for situation. Like this do the building operators need to clear it with the city. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's a mix of city permits and also FAA permits real permits and the southwest tower inspection they ended up carrying the sidewalk just to be safe. And they also do only in the morning before the winds got stronger. Did you find any drawbacks to the use of drones in this manner? Yeah. Well, I think the other example is if you are careful especially downtown you can leave the GPS signal tower. There is a trophy on September. That's he crashed the almost hit people in the area. So be careful downtown. Can get cut out your piece you point out that the city itself as some of its agencies are now authorized to use drones for operations. Yeah. That's right. So I think the public works and public utilities Commissioner they've been using it, but you know, sodas few flights. Not too many. No, I don't think it's suitable for all types of actions. But I think it will probably be a growing trend as a new Ford. Well, thank you very much for your time. We appreciate it San Francisco. Chronicle business reporter.

We're going to speak to ruling Leah real estate reporter with the San Francisco Chronicle has been cut who has been covering this story, Roland we work has been expanded very quickly has it. Not. Hi, thanks so much for having me. Yeah. They've actually doubled in size of each of the last two years so going from a pretty small footprint and even just a few years ago. Becoming one of the biggest tenants and the city what's remarkable about their model to is working with individuals who want co-opt workspace. But they're also working with some of the biggest players out there. Bank of America Facebook. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. So I think they really started as more of a single person customer smart entrepreneurs. But lately they've been really blending their business with some of these brand name companies. And I think that's actually helped them grow faster. So tell us why they're so popular. What are they doing? Right. Yes. I think it is that, you know, your tastes in office early changing. You don't want it to be kind of a boring, you know, a place where you just kind of a force to be. They serve beer and a lot of their offices. They have called zion's cold furniture. And then there was also just neighbors who are other companies that could potentially get business from. That's what they've started as a big advantage. You mentioned in your piece that they are looking to open something called rise by we this is a fitness club. Yes. It's almost kind of like a tech startups will have a lunch time yoga class or something like that and kind of formalizing into permanent space inside the office. So again, kind of having those extra features and covering that to everyone as part of a package. I've always also wondered about the cost it self, right? Is it competitive which is going out by yourself? If you are a small company and and getting that type of setup and especially for bigger companies. I would think it would be cheaper for them to lease the the office space themselves. Yeah, I'm in southwest tower will be based on one of the most expensive locations. So it's actually eight hundred dollars a month for just one desk and then fourteen hundred. For one person private office. So, you know, probably only they're really well funded startups can get in there. But other locations around half the price in San Francisco, and their argument is that this is cheaper in the long run because they're also doing key services building management. They're designing it themselves. So if you're by yourself and your own building and paying for all that by yourself. It's actually more expensive. Does we work have a major competitor out there any of the big players in this arena? Yeah. So what was known as Regis? And now, they're they're kind of WG may also on the brand called spaces. They're actually kind of the first big co working company and actually kind of started going to ninety s I think was actually interesting is during the first dot com bust. Thousand one free just went bankrupt and actually had to restructure. So I think one of the questions in the pieces, you know, what will happen when next recession happens with we work because they have all they have all these leases on tons and tons of office space. Right. And it's a lot of the deals have been signed in the last two years or just literally the most expensive time to be sending some San Francisco. So they argue that you know, if you provide this flexibility during a downturn people actually come to you because they want that you know, two year less commitment. But I think it'll be interesting to see know does that actually bear out pretty fast all the way round the rolling. Thanks for making some time for us today. Appreciate it. That's Rowland Lee.
