Performance Contracting, Inc. Signs Enterprise Agreement with OpenSpace to Expand Usage of Reality Capture
Specialty contractor uses OpenSpace’s AI-powered insights and visual data to manage jobs more efficiently, improve resource allocation, and verify completed work
SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2023 – OpenSpace, the global leader in 360° reality capture and AI-powered analytics, announced today a new enterprise agreement with Performance Contracting, Inc. (PCI). Headquartered in Lenexa, KS, PCI is a premier specialty contractor serving the non-residential, commercial, and industrial markets across the United States. The firm plans to deploy OpenSpace technology broadly across its projects. PCI currently leverages the reality capture solution on its most high-profile projects and decided to enter into an enterprise agreement with OpenSpace after achieving significant time savings and operational improvements in safety, conflict identification, project management, and team coordination.
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with PCI and bring the benefits of reality capture to a wider range of commercial and industrial projects,” said Shirin Oshidari, Vice President of Sales at OpenSpace. “We share a common vision of applying the latest technologies to keep jobsites safe and projects on schedule and are honored to be part of PCI’s continuing success story as one of the country’s top-ranked specialty contractors.”
OpenSpace has helped PCI streamline jobsite documentation and improve project management, thanks to the company’s broad adoption of the technology. The platform is powerful and easy to use; customers simply attach a 360° camera to a hard hat, tap record in the OpenSpace mobile app, and walk the site as normal. OpenSpace’s software automatically uploads the data, organizes the images, pins them to the correct location on the floor plan, and stitches them together to form an immersive 3D version of the entire jobsite. Project stakeholders can do virtual walkthroughs of the site from any location, track progress over time, add field notes and change requests, and more.
“I’ve been impressed by how fast, intuitive, and easy to use the platform is, and nearly everyone on our Austin team uses OpenSpace on their jobs,” said Matt Murphy, Project Manager and Austin Team Lead. “From the moment you start walking the job, you can view your capture within the hour. It makes it really easy to cruise through the floor plans and view progress. The photos, tracking, and work verification provide good insurance for labor control, change orders, and schedule verification.”
Adds Project Engineer Austin Johannsen, “Our job has a lot of moving parts, and for our team, labor control is the biggest part. We have 40-50 people working in different areas, and tracking labor control is critical. OpenSpace has not only made our labor control more accurate, but we are able to do it in less time. OpenSpace saves our team about 4-8 hours every week in labor control, and we can build jobs faster and for less money using it.”
OpenSpace, the global leader in reality capture and AI-powered analytics, empowers construction and real estate companies of every size to create an interactive 360° digital view of their built environment. Customers have used OpenSpace to operate more efficiently and reduce risk, capturing more than 15 billion square feet of imagery from construction projects across thousands of sites in more than 91 countries.
