Matterport and SIMLAB
Matterport Invests in Tech Company SIMLAB
Accelerating Building Design, Construction and Management
Strategic investment amplifies Matterport’s platform for third party integrations and add-ons with integrations for BIM and smart home IoT technologies.
SIMLAB specializes in the digitization of buildings throughout the design and construction phases, and develops software toolkits for architecture, engineering, and construction teams to communicate more efficiently.
The integration between Matterport and SIMLAB enables project stakeholders to better track and view different points in time throughout the architectural design stage as well as inspect construction sites without traveling.
Imagine receiving real-time daily updates on a project site without needing to capture more scans. With a construction management platform like SIMLAB Stages, digital twins can be overlayed with BIM and engineering data so users can view specific points before, during, and after the renovation without traveling to the site.
Once a Matterport digital twin of a space is captured, property owners can embed their smart home sensors and IoT devices into them to create a multimedia digital command center available 24/7 through their computer, tablet or smartphone. Property owners can include information about facility assets within the digital replica and set a time schedule for upcoming maintenance.
