Fireside Chat: How Polk Mechanical Improves Coordination with OpenSpace

Polk Mechanical Company is a leading diversified mechanical services provider offering commercial, industrial, and maintenance services in Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston. Founded in 2003, the company focuses on healthcare, data centers, residential, hospitality, and other mission-critical sectors.

In this conversation with Construction Technologist Jonah Walton and VDC Group Manager Ben Brown, you’ll discover why Polk Mechanical Company selected OpenSpace reality capture and see a demo of the technology on an active project. The presenters share how OpenSpace helps strengthen coordination and improve client relationships, and they describe a number of use cases to demonstrate the day-to-day value they derive from OpenSpace, including 360° jobsite documentation, active progress tracking, managing labor constraints, comparing site conditions to BIM, minimizing disputes, and holding others on the job accountable. The demo features OpenSpace Capture and OpenSpace Track in action (with ductwork, mechanical piping, and plumbing piping trackers), along with BIM Compare, Split Screen, Progress Charts, and Field Notes features.
