Tesseract Ventures is disrupting the Construction Industry

At Tesseract, we focus on the Art of the Possible… and the Science of the Practical when it comes to customer solutions

Simply put, there are table stakes with any construction project. We execute those, but are always pushing the boundaries of what CAN be done, what is POSSIBLE on a site to make it safer, more secure and more efficient to deliver ROI for our customers.

Tesseract’s Vision of the Future of Construction and Ownership

Our mission is to create innovative solutions that go above and beyond those table stakes.

Tesseract’s Mission to change the world…starting with Construction Technology

By doing so, we help businesses become smarter, more efficient, and more secure.

Construction challenges in the 21st century

Today, there are many challenges facing the construction industry including Security, Efficiency, Safety and the ability to take captured data and make it “actionable intelligence” are critical.

The need for companies to not only extract more data… but to properly action against it, is critical for success and return on investment.

We believe that Tesseract addresses today’s challenges with tomorrow’s technology through our suite of solutions.

Tesseract’s ecosystem consists of three core areas that provide organizations with the tools to gather and make sense of data across every aspect of their operation.

There are 3 legs to the Tesseract stool, our solutions suite:

  • Tesseract Hardware solutions, which we call Prism
  • Tesseract Software solutions, which we call our Mosaic Suite
  • Tesseract collaborative environments for data visualization that we call “Tesseract Smart Spaces
Tesseract Insight, On Site!


Our PRISM suite of IoT, edge, and wearable devices helps you control and gain insight from your job site. From time and attendance to full positional tracking, we deliver actionable data in real-time.

Tesseract Prism Robotics and Hardware

These are just a few of our hardware solutions we offer in our PRISM hardware suite.

We provide different types of positional tracking sensors, wearables, managed communications and varying levels of site access control.

Our solutions can be used to notify employees of real time hazards, notify workers and managers of entry into restricted areas, track workers and important equipment with an incredible amount of proximity and even manage communications from day 1 on a site in remote areas. We have solutions to fit any set of site requirements or budget.

Tesseract’s Mosaic software has become very important to enable a common operating picture

As our Prism hardware pulls data from sensors across a site, our software solution, Mosaic, pulls it together in an actionable format. Whether it’s the basics of time and attendance or real time location, our Mosaic suite not only captures data for reporting and auditing, but it enables site leadership to make changes, coach workers and more to keep a site safe, secure and efficient.

What is Tesseract NODE?

Tesseract NODE is a self contained technology hub for any worksite.

The NODE is easily deployed and integrated into existing site infrastructure, minimizing setup time and ensuring a seamless implementation. Serving as the central access point for both workers and visitors, the NODE is capable of managing multiple entry points, streamlining the flow of authorized personnel while maintaining the desired level of security.

Featuring a range of security options, the NODE caters to various project requirements. With flexible settings from open access for low-risk areas to fully locked down turnstiles for high-security zones, the NODE adapts to the specific needs of each construction site. This adaptable approach ensures that site managers can effectively control access while maintaining efficiency and promoting a safe working environment.

What is a Tesseract Construction BRACER?

The Tesseract Bracer is a state-of-the-art wearable device that employs advanced 3D scanning technology to monitor and evaluate the construction site environment. Equipped with a range of sensors and cameras, it offers real-time data on project progress, enabling contractors and project managers to efficiently identify the status of various tasks and make informed decisions about resource allocation.

Tesseract Bracer Key features

  1. Real-time 3D scanning: The Bracer’s cutting-edge 3D scanning technology captures the construction site in real-time, creating a digital representation of the environment. This enables stakeholders to visualize the project’s progress and pinpoint areas that require attention.
  2. Task identification and monitoring: By using AI and machine learning algorithms, the Tesseract Bracer identifies finished and unfinished tasks, allowing project managers to make data-driven decisions and ensure resources are optimally utilized. This reduces the likelihood of project delays and helps maintain deadlines.
  3. Safety and compliance: The Tesseract Bracer monitors safety regulations and standards on the construction site. By identifying potential hazards and areas of non-compliance, the device helps ensure a safer work environment for all.
  4. Integration with BIM (Building Information Modeling): The Bracer’s ability to integrate with BIM software enhances the accuracy and effectiveness of project management. By combining the real-time data from the Bracer with BIM’s virtual models, project managers can quickly identify discrepancies and address them before they escalate.

What is MOSAIC?

The software backbone for PRISM is MOSAIC. It organizes and displays vast amounts of information from many sources, so teams can easily and intuitively work with their valuable data.

Tesseract Mosaic Software ingests real time data from robots and other IoT sensors

In addition, Mosaic can add integrations from other on site or off site sensors bot give leadership a “one stop” heads up display on their projects.

Tesseract MOSAIC is radical software to manage robots and critical notifications

For many of our clients, having a “mission control” on site or at their corporate office to review site data, optimize execution plans and collaborate is critical.

This, along with your current software programs can “come to life” in our Tesseract Smart Spaces.

What is a Tesseract Smart Space?
