How Suffolk Leverages OpenSpace Progress Tracking to Increase Transparency and Drive Production Onsite

Founded in 1982, Suffolk Construction Company is a Boston-based construction contracting company serving the aviation, commercial, education, healthcare, gaming, and government sectors. Suffolk is the largest construction contractor in Massachusetts and one of the 20 largest in the country.

Suffolk has been leveraging Lean scheduling and planning for years, but tracking accurate work in place values across entire projects was a huge challenge. The construction giant selected OpenSpace initially to automate its manual capture processes, generating tremendous efficiencies compared to manual captures in the field. Suffolk then became interested in leveraging this automated documentation to improve its progress tracking process. OpenSpace’s automated progress tracking capabilities helped project teams understand the current Planned Percent Complete (PPC) of each trade partner, enabling quick course-correction onsite.

Read this case study to learn how, working with OpenSpace, Suffolk has saved hundreds of hours in progress tracking, improved quality control with trade partners, and increased transparency with owners and design team members.
