Multinational conglomerate Koch Industries is an active participant on thousands of construction sites across the world. Construction project leaders within the company sought to modernize jobsite communications, updating a longstanding model of using paper and SMS-based tools to navigate and manage sites. Koch Industries’ innovation accelerator, Advance Concepts, and High Alpha Innovation partnered to infuse technology into the construction field, rapidly developing concepts to address common pain points for general contractors, site managers, and team leads.
PLOT, a construction-based jobsite coordination solution, launched with industry expert Chris Callen serving as founder and CEO. As an early investor in PLOT, Koch provided valuable beta customers and jobsite data to accelerate the company’s product growth. In addition, PLOT has secured partnership agreements with major Koch subsidiaries Georgia-Pacific and Guardian Industries.
