8 reasons why Matterport is an essential tool for the building industry

  1. 3D Scanning and Virtual Tours

Matterport allows you to create a detailed 3D model of construction sites, buildings, and interiors. This can be used for documenting the existing conditions of a site, providing virtual tours to clients, or tracking progress throughout the construction process.

2. Project Documentation

Matterport models serve as an excellent way to document the stages of a construction project. You can create scans at various milestones to keep track of the work, which can be helpful for quality control and dispute resolution.

3. Collaboration

Matterport models can be easily shared with project stakeholders, both on-site and remotely. Architects, engineers, project managers, and clients can collaborate more effectively by viewing and discussing the project in a virtual 3D environment.

4. Measurement and Data Analysis

Matterport provides tools for measuring distances, areas, and volumes within the scanned space. This can be useful for verifying measurements, assessing space requirements, and planning for materials and resources.

5. Marketing and Sales

Matterport models are unrivalled when it comes to marketing and sales. Estate professionals can use it to showcase properties to potential buyers or renters, while construction companies can use it to demonstrate the quality of their work.

6. Facility Management

Once construction is complete, Matterport models can continue to be valuable for facility management. The model provides a detailed and interactive record of the building.

7. Safety and Training

Matterport models can be used for safety training and planning. The model can be used to identify potential safety hazards and develop safety protocols.

8. Cost Savings

By utilising Matterport software, construction professionals can save time and money. It can reduce the need for physical site visits, minimise errors, and enhance communication among team members.

In summary, Matterport software is a versatile tool in the construction industry, serving various purposes throughout the project lifecycle.

Its ability to create detailed 3D scans and provide an interactive, immersive experience makes it a valuable asset for construction.
