FREMONT, CA: Matterport, the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, has announced that CRB, a global design and construction provider for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, is implementing the Matterport platform to streamline client operations and enhance remote facilities management. CRB uses Matterport to construct dimensionally accurate digital twins of buildings to speed up pharmaceutical facility design and management, allowing its clients to deliver crucial vaccine production programs during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. CRB has greatly reduced the number of engineers needed to complete physical site evaluations, as well as the time required for assessments, by using Matterport digital twins. On one recent project, the number of engineers needed on-site was reduced from ten to one.

Matterport digital twins enable greater client and stakeholder engagement by providing a holistic view of a facility without requiring physical site visits. CRB has used Matterport to accelerate design projects by up to three weeks and reduce travel-related costs by 33 percent. As part of the US government's Operation Warp Speed program, CRB quickly adapted a facility for a leading pharmaceutical company to produce and store COVID-19 vaccines.
"Matterport provides phenomenal high-resolution digital twins and is ideal for technically complex and time-sensitive projects. We don't need to model all the geometry in an area to know if a certain piece of equipment will fit, since we can download the point cloud information into programs like Autodesk Revit to validate dimensions," stated Chris Link, Regional Virtual Design and Construction Manager of CRB. "Integrating clear, precise 3D images with highly accurate data establishes a new standard in our industry. Matterport is an increasingly valuable solution for us as we plan for the future, saving our clients weeks of time and tens of thousands of dollars."
