Waypoint 2021 – Session 3: The Future of Tech-Enabled Construction

Executive Roundtable

On November 2, 2021, more than 250 construction professionals from across the industry and across the world gathered for Waypoint 2021, our first annual virtual user conference. At this interactive event, the OpenSpace team announced exciting new products and features, shared best practices from customers, and provided networking sessions to connect attendees with their peers in the global construction industry.

In this recording of the complete third session, executives from STO Building Group, Kitchell, Tishman Speyer, Liberty Mutual Insurance, and Aligned Data Centers engage in a fascinating discussion of how the AEC industry is undergoing a generational evolution powered by a new “golden age” of construction technology.

Watch this video to learn about:

  • The big challenges and key trends impacting the industry and how companies are operating in a time of extreme change.
  • How advanced analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), industrialized construction, digitalization, and other accelerating technologies are rendering certain business approaches obsolete.

At OpenSpace, we’re on a mission to bring new levels of transparency to construction. We combine simple off-the-shelf 360° cameras, computer vision, and AI to make it incredibly easy to capture a complete visual record of a job site, share it via the cloud, and track progress remotely. Our customers have used the platform to capture more than 10 billion square feet of job site imagery and over 494 million images of active construction projects, from job sites in 86 countries across five continents.
