I am the general contractor for a 25-story, 500,000 SQ FT office building renovation.

I am considering CupixWorks and Matterport to shoot weekly construction documentation (as-built digital twin).

1. How long does it take to scan this building weekly for CupixWorks? (how)?
2. Using CupixWorks, how does our team compare: BIM to actual weekly construction documentation?
3. Using CupixWorks, how does our team compare: week-to-week construction documentation?

Thanks to Gannon Wilder (@Gannon_Cupix) for being on the WGAN-TV Podcast. I hope to have Gannon back to give us a tour of the Cupix backend content management system.
