Our mission is to leverage weather data, machine learning and predictive analytics to increase productivity, enhance safety and manage risk.
Decision Support Solutions
Weather is one of the top three reasons for missed milestones in the construction industry and built environment, with negative impacts costing billions of dollars.
WeatherBuild® offers a suite of decision support solutions that empower contractors, owners and operators to improve situational awareness and make better-informed decisions about weather events, schedule impacts, safety risks and probable outcomes.
WeatherBuild is co-founded by Adam Omansky and Applied Invention, a multidisciplinary innovation company.
Prior to WeatherBuild, Adam was the Co-founder and Vice President of Product Strategy at Vela Systems, the leading field management and field BIM (Building Information Modeling) software company for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, acquired by Autodesk – now BIM 360, Autodesk’s “fastest growing product.”
