How OpenSpace Helps Kitchell Improve the Profitability of Hospital Projects

Founded in 1950, Kitchell began as a commercial contracting business and over the years developed new talents and enterprises, acquiring complementary businesses and expertise to remain a competitive, privately-owned company. Today, Kitchell Corporation is the holding entity of several companies that are part of Kitchell’s core business as well as those that operate independently.

Kitchell was seeking ways to reduce risk and be a more efficient partner to its stakeholders. In particular, the firm wanted to improve its handoff processes with facilities teams to reduce manual effort and increase transparency. Kitchell chose OpenSpace because of the technology’s ability to capture and map images to floor plans automatically, with significantly better coverage and no manual processes. But quickly, other important use cases emerged, and the technology benefited other teams at every stage of the project.

Read this case study to learn how, working with OpenSpace, Kitchell has achieved significant cost savings and operational improvements. The company piloted the platform in its healthcare projects and is now deploying it on all projects moving forward based on these strong results.
