Introduction: Matterport for Construction Documentation

The Value of Construction Documentation

Documentation is a critical part​ of any new construction project. Stakeholders such as the general contractor and the owner need documentation at important milestones to verify construction is being performed to standards and according to design.

Verification based on good documentation lowers the amount of rework​ due to error. For example, it’s easier to fix electrical and plumbing issues before putting up drywall.

Documentation also helps with maintenance once the building is complete. The facility manager can later review documentation to find critical maintenance information​, saving valuable time and money for the building owner and operator.

 

How Matterport can Help

Matterport is an ideal solution for construction documentation. A Matterport Space offers an immersive, interactive 3D experience that’s easier to manage than thousands of 2D photos. Key features for the construction industry include:

  • Tag the 3D Space to create visual punch lists and operation manuals.​ Add a short description and an external link with more information. Learn how.
  • Link to specific spots in the 3D Space.​ Reduce friction and time to resolution by communicating to stakeholders exactly where the problem is. Learn how.
  • Export point clouds, floor plans, and reflected ceiling plans to CAD/BIM programs ​such as AutoCAD and Revit. Learn how.
  • Make measurements and dimensions on the 3D Space​ with 99% accuracy. Learn how.
