Tishman Speyer + OpenSpace Case Study
Learn how Tishman Speyer saved on rework and improved the turnover process.
Tishman Speyer’s Director of Design and Construction Eleftherios Pittas and his team decided to leverage OpenSpace for The Spiral—a 2.8 million-square-foot office building currently under construction in Manhattan’s Hudson Yards—starting in mid-2019.

“If a 2D picture is worth a thousand words and a 3D picture is worth a million words, then an OpenSpace capture is basically priceless,” Pittas said. “Since imagery is automatically mapped to the plan, you have a lot more context and data at your fingertips, and you can easily share it with anyone on the project.”
OpenSpace has delivered a more detailed history of The Spiral than as-builts or 2D drawings could provide, and this record can be leveraged by Tishman Speyer’s property managers and tenants for decades to come.
