Our Story

ZELUS started with an idea, a small group of people, and a park table. We had a vision for a company that delivered consistently good work, with global reach, and the ability to continue growing. Our team knew from previous experience what it was like to work under limited vision and constraints placed by boards, and we wanted something different.


Our core team of 9 set up an “office” at Papago Park, and we got to work. We would meet at a cement park bench under a ramada three times a week. That team of 9 grew to over 150 and we are excited to continue that growth.

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring efficiency to the construction process by providing an accurate dimensional understanding of the physical world.


We do this by integrating technology into the design and as-built process, enabling owners, architects, contractors, and engineers to reduce cost and improve schedule performance.


Our Values


Grateful for our diversity of clients and team members, who produce greater value than that of any individual.


Committed to a collaborative environment that fosters individual creativity, thought and innovation.


Delivering the hightest quality products and services through honest and clear communication.


Relentlessly and enthusiastically driven towards excellence.
