8 Reasons why your building should have a 3D 'Digital Twin'.

When most clients request a Matterport 3D, they know why they need it. It might be to show a venue to International clients, or an architect who wants to produce an accurate 'as built' model or a facilities manager who wants a very accurate digitised copy of their building and equipment inventory. However, I would argue that every building should have a Digital Twin, and here are 8 reasons that you might not have thought about.

1. Your Customers

There is simply no better way to show your space to your customers, than by allowing them 'walk through' your space as though they were there in person. The dollhouse and floor plan views also bring visual marketing to another level.

2. The Staff you'd like to attract

Beautiful workspaces attract better talent. If you have a beautiful workspace, show it in 3D.

3. Insurance and Restoration

Get the fastest and most comprehensive loss documentation solution so you can close claims faster, enable remote viewing and adjusting, and reduce disputes in property claims.

4. Facilities Management

Reduce the costs of managing your facility’s design and ongoing maintenance. With a Daly Productions, you get a complete scan of the entire facility’s structure and the equipment within it to get accurate measurements, schematic floor plans, an equipment inventory, and more.

5. Architecture, Engineering, Renovating & Construction

Reduce visits to a site, eliminate manual photography, manual measuring and errors, annotate the build (through hotspots), share and collaborate with project teams and export point cloud data to 3rd party software such as Revit.

6. Google Street View

For most organisations and retailers, we can publish the Immersive 3D to show up on Google Maps, Google Earth, and the mobile Street View application as fully linked Virtual Tours. Although not as feature-rich as the Matterport Immersive Tour, the Google Street View Virtual tour drives traffic to businesses' websites and increases search ranking.

7. Property Leasing and Sales

The 3D virtual experience streamlines the decision making process for prospective tenants, buyers and investors, closing sales 31% faster, with a 4-9% higher sales price.

8. Just Because it's Beautiful

Some buildings are just too beautiful to hide.
