You might be surprised to learn that interior designers - even when working on smaller projects - can strongly benefit from the use of building information modeling (BIM) software. It is an affordable, effective & efficient tool for communicating ideas, analyzing and evaluating space, and helping to forecast the performance of a finished building.
This seminar allows participants to experience the use of BIM technology in real-world applications. Join us to see the benefits of BIM first-hand and learn how the technology is positioning interior designers to be more productive, competitive and profitable.
> Identify the specific benefits of a BIM-enabled process for interior designers.
> Discover first-hand the ease of modeling for interior design, and the benefits of automating the documentation process.
> Learn how to leverage the model for more effective communication with clients.
> Learn how your practice can implement BIM in a way that meets your specific needs and goals.
