When was Multivista founded? Founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2003, and introduced into the United States in 2006, Multivista has grown to 43 offices worldwide and has contracted over one billion square feet of construction projects.
How was Multivista founded? Founding partner and Multivista CEO, Luis Pascual, working as an electrician in the construction industry faced the challenge of determining what was behind the wall once the drywall was up. Frequently, the inability to locate the systems behind wallboard required expensive destructive testing to identify, verify and correct issues. He came to realize that by using photos to capture a construction project at specific points, guesswork and destructive testing could be avoided. Graham Twigg, currently Chief Technical Officer and also a founding partner, envisioned a system where those same photographs could be linked to their exact locations on corresponding project blueprints - creating a complete, indexed, visual record of the project throughout construction progress. Pascual and Twigg combined their vision, effort and expertise to create the Multivista Documentation Software (MDS) system.
