Commercial property virtual tours
Make Your Listings Standout
Don’t let your listings get lost in the noise. Virtual tours are quality marketing content that make your properties stand out and represent the high standard of your brand.
By giving potential tenants & landlords the ability to remotely explore a property before enquiring, virtual tours cut out time-wasters and filter through only interested, qualified leads.
Interactive & Engaging
Thanks to things like social media, attention spans are shorter than ever before. Listings with a virtual tour are proven to hold attention up to 3x longer than a listing with just pictures.
How much will my virtual tour actually cost?

Scene3D completed a fantastic 3D walkthrough of a building before we started to plan modification works. The virtual tour was an invaluable tool for the designers, helping to visualise and detail remotely.

Virtual Tour FAQ's
Our most frequently asked questions
How long does it take to create a virtual tour?
The honest answer is every project is different, factors such as the size, intricacy and complexity of the space can all impact the time required to effectively 3D scan a building.
However, we can provide some ballpark timings based on our real world experience:
- 3-5 bed residential property will take approx 1 to 2 hours to shoot
- A 20,000 Sq Ft open plan office demise will take approx 3 to 4 hours to shoot
- A 20,000 Sq Ft gym with lots of equipment and mirrors will take approx 4 to 6 hours to shoot
- A 100,000 Sq Ft convention center will take approx 2 days to shoot
Again this can vary depending upon the project but as a general rule we aim to have the virtual tour back for review within 5 to 7 working days.
Once the tour has been reviewed by the client we’ll then look at adding in any data-tags to the tour. This part of the process is usually a collaboration between us and the client to determine what information, photos, video or audio needs adding to the tour and where is best to add that content. How long this takes is often determined by the client’s readiness with their content but usually it’s a couple of days.
Does someone need to be with you during the shoot?
For most use cases, getting the best results from a virtual tour means shooting the property or business when footfall is at a minimum, this could be on a weekend or in an evening. Our team is happy to shoot during these times (at no extra cost) to ensure the best end result.
Having a staff member to escort our team out of hours can sometimes be a challenge for our clients. In these cases we’re happy to collect a key during office hours then conduct the shoot without an escort. We pride ourselves on our experience and professionalism so will always conduct ourselves accordingly while unaccompanied.
There are cases where this may not be appropriate, such as scanning a construction or high voltage site. For these projects we may require an escort for health and safety reasons.
In what format will my virtual tour be sent to me?
Virtual tours are hosted online, similar to a website. This allows your virtual tour to be interactive and exploreable without the need to use a program or app. Viewers will be able to open your virtual tour on everything from an iphone to a desktop PC. This also enables the virtual tour to be embedded right onto a webpage or property listing.
With this in mind, when Scene3D deliver your virtual tour we’ll send you 3 links:
- Virtual tour URL – This is a link to open the virtual tour in your web browser. This link is great to quickly share over email, whatsapp or text message.
- Virtual tour embed code – This is a piece of code called an iframe, used to add the virtual tour to your website, similar to how you embed a youtube video.
- Dropbox link – We’ll also provide a link to a dropbox folder containing images, a teaser video and a QR Code to help you get the most out of your virtual tour.
Do virtual tours have any on-going fees?
As we mentioned above, virtual tours are hosted online. This does mean there are some associated renewal costs, similar to hosting a website.
At Scene3D we charge £45 +VAT per year to keep the virtual tour live. Hosting is also included for the first 12 months.
Are virtual tours safe?
As a virtual tour is a detailed view of a space that can be viewed from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, it’s a reasonable concern to worry who could be taking a look. The truth is just like posting on social media or youtube, a virtual tour is as safe as you decide it to be.
During post-production, there’s a variety of options to adjust the security level of your virtual tour. These include: passwords, privacy settings, sharing settings and the blur tool. Each of these options can be tailored to meet your needs. For example, a residential property agent may want as many people as possible to view the virtual tour, increasing the number of enquiries. Whereas an architect who’s virtual tour is for their team’s reference only, may wish to add a password.
Can you photoshop my virtual tour?
A virtual tour is a piece of ‘reality capture’ content. This means they are designed to look as true to life as possible. While this is great for giving an honest depiction of a space it does limit the options that a virtual tour provider has to edit during post production.
Unlike traditional photographs, it’s not possible to open a virtual tour in a program like photoshop then edit the visuals of a space.
However, virtual tour providers do have some options to edit a virtual tour. If something personal like a letter or a family photo is accidentally visible during the shoot, there is a blur tool available. This allows us to carefully ‘brush out’ these items, making sure privacy is maintained.
It’s also possible to ‘hide’ positions in a virtual tour. So if, during the review phase, you spot something you’d prefer not to display, we may be able to hide that scan position.
What are virtual tour data-tags?
Data tags are clickable hotspots in your virtual tour that can contain additional content. Data-tags can contain text, photos, video, audio or web links and are one of the best ways to maximize the value and effectiveness of your virtual tour.
Scene3D offers unlimited data-tags for your virtual tour without any extra charges. Our expert team will to work with you to optimize the placement, quantity, and content of these data-tags, ensuring your virtual tour achieves its full potential.
