A graduate of the Research Park’s EnterpriseWorks incubator, Reconstruct was founded in 2016 by several Grainger Engineering faculty, including Illinois CS professor Derek Hoiem. Hoiem currently serves as the company’s chief science officer.

According to Reconstruct’s press release, this funding round was led by Nemetschek Group, a global leader in construction software, along with other leading architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) companies: EquipmentShare/Romulus Capital, STO Building Group, ThorntonTomasetti, SHoP Architects, Syska Hennessy, and Asia Pacific Land.

Reconstruct says that the investment will enable it to integrate with software like Bluebeam’s Revu, a markup and collaboration solution that’s widely used in the construction industry.

They are tackling some of the industry’s biggest challenges and we are excited to fuel the company’s growth through this investment and by connecting them with our open partner ecosystems of Bluebeam and other Nemetschek brands.”
