"Builders have an incredibly difficult job. Every construction project is unique with many moving parts and teams. Our goal is to make their lives easier and more efficient by providing intuitive tools that take collaboration to a whole new level.”
Jeevan Kalanithi, CEO and Co-Founder
Challenging times call for smarter building
Nearly 100 million people globally live without a home, construction labor shortages are at historic highs, and continued supply chain disruptions are weighty challenges pointing to the criticality of making the work of building more efficient and less risky.
Images that do all the talking
At OpenSpace we’re tackling the challenges facing the industry with cutting-edge technology—think the perception and navigation AI systems used in self-driving cars—to empower project teams to get things done faster, together. We believe that simple yet powerful image-based workflows eliminate confusion and unlock efficiencies never before possible with text-based systems.
Time machines for every jobsite
Imagine the ability to click a button to see your site as it is today, or travel back in time to how it looked yesterday, or a year ago—and navigate it like Google Street View. Construction firms, specialty contractors, along with owners use OpenSpace to quickly and easily get a picture of what’s really happening on their jobsites. We take the overall risk out of projects, literally: insurance carriers we partner with are offering lower-cost policies.

We do love the well-placed gif and the artful pun. We OpenSpacers also bounce back from setbacks, learn from screw ups, and carry on.
Our investors include world-class technology venture firms and customers
