It’s time to help our
builders build.

Affordable housing shortages, outdated infrastructure, aging power grids: these are massive, pressing problems facing our country, and the world. But we’re not confronting them as boldly as we should — in part because we haven’t provided the men and women in construction with the same powerful tools to manage their work that today’s office workers take for granted.

It’s time to change that.

At OpenSpace, we’re using cutting-edge technology — think the perception and navigation AI systems used in self-driving cars — to allow people out in the real world to efficiently capture their work, analyze it, and get things done. We’re building virtual time machines for every job site. 

Reducing the cost, time and pain it takes to build by even a couple of percentage points will revolutionize the industry’s approach to construction--and revolutionize how we manage humanity’s built environments overall. And we can do a lot better than a couple percent.

Futuristic technology, years in the making.

The technology behind OpenSpace’s patent-pending video processing algorithms is the culmination of nearly 20 years of combined research and development, starting with the founders’ PhD work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

This research into cutting-edge approaches to computer vision, 3D modeling and big data visualization, as featured in this TED talk, form the foundation of the AI system that powers the OpenSpace suite of products. 

Building on this work, OpenSpace’s team of PhDs and Masters of Science from MIT, CalTech, Stanford and Berkeley has spent the last three years adapting these core algorithms, similar to the technology behind self-driving cars, specifically for the construction industry.

The OpenSpace team are seasoned entrepreneurs who specialize in commercializing cutting-edge technology, having founded and built high-growth AI companies with acquirers such as 3D Robotics and Twitter. 

We are proud to be the first product in the market that provides builders and owners a fully automatic reality capture system.

And we aim to be the technology leaders in this space. If you like what you see now, rest assured that there is more to come in the future. Because at OpenSpace, we provide products to our end users that — while backed with incredibly advanced technology — are simple, powerful, and help get the job done.
