 What to expect during the event

BIM has many distinct advantages, such as improved collaboration across the design team and the wider supply chain, efficiency in time savings by reducing time on site at the build stage with any clashes being identified at the design stage and eliminating reworks onsite.
BIM is a revolutionary process that allows architects, engineers and other professionals to collaborate on the same project in a 3D environment. But as interior designers, it takes one step further. In a virtual world, BIM can give the client a fully immersive experience, allowing them to be a part of their building (or asset) as if it were fully finished. The readiness and awareness on BIM implementation in interior design industry will be enhanced the BIM used among interior design industry.
BIM has made it easier than ever for interior designers to create highly detailed designs that incorporate all aspects of a building’s structure and features into the interior aesthetics. BIM can also be used to personalize the design, meeting the exacting requirements of the client.
For an interior designer, creativity is paramount, and BIM enhances the creative process. Interior designers can use BIM to better communicate their design concepts, affording them more freedom, flexibility and ingenuity.

1. The readiness of BIM implementation in interior design industry.
2. How BIM technology can help interior design in design process.
3. The integrated collaboration improved design software allows the interior designer to work collaboratively.
