Depending on the client’s wishes interior design can be dealt with by Morgan Architects in house or in collaboration with the clients own specialist consultant as is often the case in retail design.
BIM (Building Information Modelling)
BIM is an acronym for Building Information Modelling, or Building Information Model. It describes the process of designing a building collaboratively using one coherent system of computer models rather than as separate sets of drawings. It offers enormous gains in saving in cost and time, much greater accuracy in estimation, and the avoidance of error, alterations and rework due to information loss. Dynamic information about the building, such as sensor measurements and control signals from the building systems, can also be incorporated within BIM to support analysis of building operation and maintenance.
