How Western Partitions Saved on Rework and Improved Progress Tracking Using OpenSpace

Western Partitions is one of the largest and most reputable interior and exterior contracting firms in the western United States. Founded in 1972 and headquartered outside of Portland, OR, Western Partitions provides specialty contracting services in multiple sectors, including commercial, education, entertainment, healthcare, hospitality, and public works.

In 2020, Western Partitions won a bid for a large hotel project and was contractually required to provide photo documentation of site conditions before closing up any walls. Given the scale of the project, the company turned to OpenSpace to automate its documentation process. Teams quickly saw that the technology was delivering significant value beyond the initial use case.

Read this case study to learn how, working with OpenSpace, Western Partitions has avoided thousands of dollars in chargebacks and rework, improved trust and coordination with GCs and other stakeholders, achieved dramatic time savings, and benefited from more accurate progress tracking.

“It literally paid for itself in the first third of this job’s duration. Anything from now on is protecting our bottom line.”
