XYZ Reality

The Opportunity

About XYZ
XYZ Reality is on a mission to eliminate rework and reduce errors, pioneering the Construction Industry with the world’s most accurate Augmented Reality (AR) headset, the Atom.

Harnessing the power of the Atom, construction teams can now view and position 3D BIM models on-site to 5mm accuracy, validate in real-time and make immediate decisions in the field during all phases of construction. This cutting-edge tool makes the entire construction journey safer and more efficient, reducing waste, de-risking processes, and allowing construction teams to build it right, first time.
