Thanks for all of the comments and feedback everyone! It seems like the government/education field is a better clientele for this kind of product. There is plenty to be had here in Ottawa, so hopefully this first project will act as a "foot in the door".

Something like this, if well marketed, could land you some other gigs for things like this. Just curious, how long did the entire process take you? How long onsite and how long building the tour?
The software I'm currently using is Panotour Pro by Kolor. It has a great GUI and works well on my mac - I use it alongside Lightroom, Photoshop, and PTGui. It took a while to get a grasp of how everything works together, but after a lot of exposure the work comes much easier.
The capture process for this pilot project took about an hour (no lighting, bracketing and manual focus) using a fisheye lens. I am hoping to do some tests using a wide angle to get better overall resolution - but it would involve a lot more PP!
The tour building took the most time - about half an hour of processing and stitching per panorama and a few hours to compile and fine tune the tour.
