How RG Construction Uses OpenSpace to Stay Within Budget and Get Paid on Time

Founded in 1977, RG Construction Services, Inc. is one of the largest wall and ceiling contractors in Chicagoland and Northern Illinois, with the ability to self-perform nearly every wall and ceiling service. RG Construction offers its specialty drywall services in residential, workplace, healthcare, hospitality, entertainment, education, and civic projects.

RG Construction was struggling with its manual progress documentation process and needed a faster, more reliable method. The company understood that reliable progress tracking would facilitate on-time payments and ensure better adherence to lean construction principles, and wanted to explore technologies that could deliver these benefits intuitively and efficiently. The company went with OpenSpace because, in addition to meeting the initial use cases, teams can view the progress of the project and see through walls on any given date, which is proving to be particularly helpful with highly-regulated healthcare projects.

Read this case study to learn how, working with OpenSpace, RD Construction has saved at least 40 hours a month with remote monitoring and can track progress at least 10x faster. The faster progress tracking has also made payment approvals easier and is helping to keep projects within budget. Most importantly, RD Construction is recognized as a tech-savvy and data-driven company—and is winning new business because of it.
