  • Increase communication with clients. 
  • Project Communication with clients regarding their projects is critical. 
  • OpenSpace allows clients to see their projects from anywhere.  

Technology within our industry is ever-changing, providing greater opportunities to better serve and communicate with clients, partners, and our teams. Shannon Construction continues to research and investigate new possibilities to do exactly this. Recently we invested in a product that allows our foremen and superintendents to walk their job sites and record the day-to-day progress via a hard hat attached camera. The walk can be downloaded daily, and still photos can be pulled from the video walk.

Funded in part by NASA, OpenSpace brings the latest techniques from data visualization research to the general public. OpenSpace supports the interactive presentation of data from observations, simulations, and space mission planning and operations. In addition, OpenSpace enables simultaneous connections across the globe, creating opportunities for shared experiences among audiences worldwide.

This technology is new for us, and we want to share our experience with you. Each month we will post the progress of our projects with Open Space technology.

For many, the workplace is more than just one office, building, or facility. Some employees spend their entire workday on the go, out in the field, or on the road. Regardless, there is one common thing that everyone needs: an identity and an identity-based credential to gain access to the workplace. Identity is the new perimeter, and it defines how people access the workplaces and applications needed to do their jobs. Organizations must learn how to digitally transform...Read More>>>
