You would have handled renovation/ remodeling projects quite often and realized just so many complexities are there to make the job very tricky at times.
Working closely with experienced BIM outsourcing companies can make it a lot easier for you.
Having an accurate set of interior design documentation assumes great significance for making a remodeling project more efficient and successful by seamlessly integrating the existing spaces with the newly added ones, BIM outsourcing companies use the latest BIM software to allow you to use your creativity without any limitations.
BIM is often misunderstood as just another highly publicized software that is used to create a more complex building model.
That’s not true. Besides creating detailed 3-D models and enabling you to extract accurate and precise design and construction documents, BIM also provides a comprehensive overview of the building project right from the initial conceptualization stage of a structure to its demolition.
Integration between existing and proposed structures:
Experienced BIM outsourcing companies work systemically using BIM to simplify the complex process of renovation or refurbishment of an existing structure. The process involves creating two different models for the existing and proposed structures, and then seamlessly integrating them using all the features available.
You label the architectural objects of the existing structure like walls, floors, doors/ windows etc as “existing entities”, while the newly designed architectural objects are assigned the label of “new build entities”.
You are allowed to do a dynamic comparison between the two models, and use special tools to quickly demolish or rebuild architectural objects.
The latest BIM software, like Revit, makes it very convenient to produce efficient interior design documentation.
The interior job can often look like a relay race with every contractor waiting for the other to finish and start his own work. It’s like taking a baton from the previous runner, and naturally, batons are also dropped along the way, important information is lost and precious time wasted.
BIM, with all its innovative tools and features, makes it more like the integrated effort of a team of rowers who work together in unison. A fool-proof schedule is generated allowing everyone to work together towards an efficient building with high-performing units.
Top advantages of using BIM for interior design documentation:
1. Power of visualization:
You can use BIM tools to easily communicate ideas, analyze and evaluate different spaces, and accurately assess the future performance of the structure.
Studying and comparing various design alternatives accurately reflected in related views, drawings and schedules generated to allow you to save time and builds your credibility.
2. Better collaboration:
BIM outsourcing companies make judicious use of BIM software to facilitate better collaboration among architects, interior designers, and other stakeholders.
Every individual/ team creates their own model and all these models are linked, allowing an interior designer to see every minute detail to carry out their work efficiently and with the minimum of fuss. Knowing precisely where an electrical junction box or a plumbing line is laid helps you provide a viable design. This level of collaboration saves time and money.
3. Forming accurate databases
Interior designers often find it tricky to finalize the placement and documentation of articles like furniture and equipment.
BIM makes it very convenient for them to place, document and schedule these articles. Designers can accurately sort, count and filter all databases using Revit, giving parameters to every object, like model number and cost. This allows schedules to pull their information and remain updated all the time.
Producing interior design documentation for renovation projects is not an easy job, associating with top BIM outsourcing companies can help you execute the projects flawlessly.
You are able to visualize and communicate your design in a better way, have better collaboration with all stakeholders involved, and can sort and filter all databases to come up with functionally efficient, visually pleasing designs every time.
