ChatGPT Enters the Construction Industry

Construction workers can now talk with plans using Togal.GPT

ChatGPT is making its entrance in the construction industry. For the first time ever, people in construction can talk to their plans and their plans will talk back to them—thanks to artificial intelligence and ChatGPT.

Today, Togal.AI is officially launching OpenAI ChatGPT to enhance document management—so construction professionals can use semantic search functionality to find relevant information across thousands of pages of plans, contracts, specification books, schedules and budgets in seconds.

“We see great potential for ChatGPT in the construction industry and we’re proud to be one of the first to use it,” Patrick Murphy Togal.AI Founder and CEO said. “It is incredible to see our teams literally talk to their plans and have their plans respond back with answers instantly. With hundreds of pages in construction plans, ChatGPT will help Togal.AI users save time, improve accuracy and serve as a powerful tool to eliminate mundane tasks, so estimators can focus on higher-value jobs.”

Togal.AI is an award-winning cloud-based platform that uses custom computer vision AI models to automate takeoffs in construction. It can automatically detect, measure, compare and label project spaces and features on architectural drawings with 97% accuracy. It also allows estimators and users to collaborate and share their takeoffs with team members and clients.

With ChatGPT, Togal.AI users will be able to use natural language queries to search for information across different types of documents, such as plans, specifications, contracts, invoices, schedules, budgets and more. The OpenAI ChatGPT models understand the context and intent of the queries and return the most relevant results from the documents. Users will be able to access the information they need faster and easier than ever before.

"ChatGPT will make it easier for construction professionals to get the information they need quickly and easily, allowing them to focus on other important aspects of their work,” Murphy added. “We believe this is just the beginning of ChatGPT in the construction industry.”

The U.S. construction industry is valued at over over $1.6 trillion and accounts for 4.3 percent of the country’s GDP. The ChatGPT integration is available for all Togal.AI users starting today. To learn more about Togal.AI and its features, visit or schedule a demo at
