BIM can greatly impact the interior design practice by allowing the interior designers to generate design models quickly and efficiently as well as envisage the designs in three dimensions.
BIM software makes the process uncomplicated for creating 3D models of pre-existing interior or exterior structures based on which the interior designers can start their subsequent design work.
BIM has the potential to organize and retain the constancy of 3D models not fully developed as well as automate the process for fine-tuning document information quickly despite the number or scale of modifications to the designing process created by the interior designers.
The data represented by BIM can be used for accomplishing some fundamental tasks all through the interior design process which range from early design activities like schematic space planning and master scheduling; the exactness of detailed design activities like quantification and costing; and as a final point for making of well-coordinated documentation.
BIM also contains the plentiful libraries of features and components which bring huge advantages to interior designers by facilitating them to obtain wide array of pre-made components to make their design more innovative.
BIM can accumulate and control non-graphic data inside document components of digital design that can accelerates other practical characteristics of the interior design practice. Besides, the interior designers will be able to accomplish quantity calculations concerning surface areas & material amounts precisely and easily. As a result, accurate cost estimation can be made and the designers can get rid of the materials wastage.
BIM can help interior designers to allocate design information with the other project stakeholders who are associated with creating built environments. Thus, BIM can coordinate the work and scheduling of the different project stakeholders and participants, facilitating them to keep up uniformity all through the design progression.
By developing a joint BIM design and distributing it to all the project stakeholders, Interior designers can easily address the impending effects of changes to the architectural, construction or engineering features of a project upon their own work.
