[Guide] Matterport for Construction Documentation

Scan with Matterport on the Job Site

Documentation is a critical for any new construction project. Stakeholders such as the general contractor and the owner need documentation 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. Finally, when the building is complete the facility manager can review documentation to find critical maintenance information and save them valuable time and money.

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

  • Take measurements from the 3D Space​ with 99% accuracy
  • Export point clouds, floor plans, and reflected ceiling plans to CAD/BIM programs ​such as AutoCAD and Revit
  • Tag the 3D Space to create visual punch lists and operation manuals
  • Link to specific spots in the 3D Space to communicate to stakeholders exactly where the problem is

This guide is meant for those who are intending to use Matterport for this specific use case. Included are sample workflows and lots of tips intended for construction firms. We've also included lots of links to existing Matterport help content and help content from third parties.
