With 10X More Imagery Than Manual Capture, OpenSpace Improves Job Site Documentation for Lee Kennedy

Based in Massachusetts, Lee Kennedy is a mid-size construction firm serving a wide range of sectors, such as commercial development, academia, healthcare, life sciences, retail, and historic restoration—with such clients as Harvard University, Microsoft, and Toyota.

Lee Kennedy had a manual documentation process that was becoming too difficult and tedious to maintain and was consuming far too much staff time. The company required a user-friendly solution to help teams capture faster, more complete documentation and make it easier to locate specific images later to manage change orders, issues, and RFIs. OpenSpace fit within existing workflows without any manual configuration or upfront work, and documentation speeds rapidly increased. Moreover, teams could use the built-in BIM viewer to compare images with the model side-by-side to quickly identify any issues or inconsistencies and avoid costly rework.

Read this case study to learn how, partnering with OpenSpace, Lee Kennedy now captures images at least 5x faster—and its documentation is 10x more complete—than with manual methods. The company also reduced travel costs by 30%, streamlined its workflows to reflect its new remote project management capabilities, and can hold subcontractors accountable more easily. Meetings and collaboration are also more effective because OpenSpace provides an independent, single source of truth.

“You can take 100 photos of every room manually, and I guarantee that the one photo you need won’t be there. That’s where OpenSpace is great. It captures sites thoroughly and fast, organizes imagery without any effort, and makes it searchable later when you need it.”
