Flexible and cross platform

OpenSpace works with the tools you already have—we support the Ricoh Theta, Insta360 and the Garmin Virb 360. We work on iPhones, iPads and Android devices. In addition to automated 360 video captures, we also support 360 photo stills and mobile phone photos: we’ve got you covered.

OpenSpace Photo is a great way to get started with complete construction photo documentation. Photo is the simplest way to capture smaller areas and quickly generate photo RFIs, issues, and observations.

With advanced features like Procore and BIM360 integration, field notes, and PDF and JPG export, Photo is a full-featured 360 photo solution. You can use your smartphone to take standard photos or connect to a 360 camera for full 360 photos.

Take as many images as you like, pin them to your plans, and share with anyone. And it’s free. Really.

“OpenSpace is an integral tool for Power Design that helps us to provide great quality work at our jobsites consistently. The ability to see the jobsite status remotely from our central corporate office is a gamechanger for how we work, and we are looking forward to getting it deployed at 100% of our jobsites.”

A complete and objective
visual record of your assets

During construction, defects create not just headaches and change orders; they can wipe out profitability when problems become liability claims. And during occupancy, poor as-builts prevent your teams from effectively operating and maintaining your spaces.

  • Track (and sell) from anywhere

    Whether you have a portfolio spread across the globe or just one project across town, physically visiting your site takes time. Visit your job from anywhere with OpenSpace. And fill your space with future tenants by showing them the site online–without requiring an in-person visit.

  • Smooth transitions from construction to operation/maintenance and back again

    For many owners, construction is a small part of the lifecycle of their business–it’s all about operation (and cap rate!) Your facilities and property management teams will love having a complete visual record of construction. Manage renovations, track progress in your spaces, and perform smarter inspections for maintenance and repair.

  • Manage defects, delays, and risk

    Getting to the bottom of construction problems can take a lot of time, a lot of money, and a lot of people–and those problems get more expensive the longer they go unnoticed. OpenSpace eliminates fingerpointing: we provide an easy-to-use reference of the site over time, giving you the evidence you need to resolve problems quickly and fairly.

  • Deliver on time and under budget

    The ground truth provided by OpenSpace accelerates project delivery, cuts budget overruns due to rework and change orders, and allows you to better control risk and liability—ensuring the best quality during and after construction for the life of the building.

OpenSpace is for
Owners

An objective, indisputable and complete visual record of your asset that you can use to manage stakeholders—and manage risk—throughout the entire lifecycle of your buildings.

Holobuilder was founded in 2016 and has offices in both San Francisco, California, and Aachen, Germany. Holobuilder allows you to capture a digital progress record of your construction site.

OpenSpace was founded in 2017 and is headquartered in San Francisco. It offers 360° photo documentation with AI technology that automatically pins photos to a project plan, enabling easy virtual walkthroughs.

“The time savings was even more significant in larger areas. It would only take 30 minutes to capture the 280,000 square feet of an entire level of the project with OpenSpace, compared to a whole day using Holobuilder.”

Jeffery Flores
P.E. at Devcon Construction, an ENR-400 construction firm

“The main reason I made the switch was processing time. StructionSite was taking 2-3 days for their VideoWalks to show up, and by the time they showed up they were already out-of date. There were other pain points too – the 10 minute walk limit, videos that never published, bad location pinning, bad orientation of 360 photos, no BIM integration – that all disappeared when I made the switch to OpenSpace.”

Fully Automated and Lightning Fast

Turn the camera on, tap go, and just walk. Our construction photo documentation software captures images every half-second and automatically ties them to project plans. No construction photographer required. The OpenSpace Vision Engine gets smarter over time: after a few walks, most projects can expect to get results in 10 to 15 minutes — not hours, not days.

Easy and Organized

With OpenSpace Field Notes, you can use your phone to add detailed images and notes while you walk–and our software automatically pins them to floor plans. Make short work of punch items, observations, RFIs, and more. We make construction photo documentation easy.

Save on construction costs

Verify work without expensive destructive verification, efficiently evaluate change orders and payments, and catch issues before they bust your budget.

Accelerated project schedules

OpenSpace’s 360 photo documentation technology accelerates project delivery, cuts budget overruns due to rework and change orders, and allows you to better control risk and liability.

50% savings in travel costs

Save unnecessary travel to the site, and put your most experienced eyes on more projects.

Smarter asset management

Visual data is valuable not just during construction, but during operations. Now you have a true as-built to manage disputes and inform future renovations.
