The company has been using its camera rig to create virtual tours, photography, CGIs and floorplans for developers, estate agents and private clients during the lockdown period.
Before the Covid-19 pandemic, Reevo 360 had to visit derelict buildings or construction sites — with some contaminated — for CGI and photoshoot work, and therefore have needed to use the hazmat suits.

It claims that it enables the company’s camera and inspection crews to visit properties without risk of contamination or infection.
The suits consist of an impermeable whole-body garment, complete with special face breathing-mask and eye shield goggles.
They are said to provide respiratory protection and defence against chemicals, biological agents or other harmful materials.

The suits can be requested by vendors and clients post-lockdown to protect the camera team and any other people in the properties that are visited.

Reevo 360 charge from £95 per virtual viewing — sold in bundles — with hazmat suit-equipped tours charged separately and at a price premium, as it requires a team for pre- and post-visit suit changes and decontamination.
Demand for virtual tours to market properties has risen in the age of Covid-19.
Daniel Freeman, sales director at Reevo 360, claimed that enquiries to the company had risen by 400% since lockdown.
“Our Reevo 360 guided virtual viewing is highly innovative and distinctive in the property marketing sector.
“What Reevo 360 offers customers is a truly interactive 360-degree tour of a property where the sales agent actually guides the buyer remotely through the home, talking through its features with them and answering questions, just as they do in the real world.”
At the end of March, Galliard Homes partnered with Reevo 360 to introduce guided virtual viewings for buyers during the outbreak.
