Sigo Interior

At Brilliant Boats Interior design doesn’t stop once the Client is happy with the concept. For our sins, we are builders as well as designers, so are used to having to show up with the details as well.

We are currently working on 3D construction models and shop drawings for the interiors of three different vessels. Two of the these vessels we actually designed as well, and the third is from an alleged “competitor”, and I can’t think of a better recommendation than that. You know you are doing something right when your competitors are prepared to pass on this sort of responsibility to an “outside” resource.

What we offer to our clients (and yours by extension) is full 3D development of the interior installations. In a similar way to how we build the structure of our vessels, we “build” every piece of the interior fit out in our construction model, including pipes and other technical installations that will affect the final interior. We construct our models based on data supplied by the architect and builder, but also by controlling as built dimensions as we move through the process. Carcassing is drawn according to as-built structure, and interior finishes are built according to as-built caracassing. We then export part by part what is required for each contractor, so each one has every detail of what he needs to do his part of the job, and each understands where his work will affect, or indeed be affected, if the man before or after him in the space hasn’t got his bit right.

What this means in practical term during this supercritical stage of any build, is that all of the habitual interference and access issues are solved on the drawing board, not in the boat. It also means that diverse teams can proceed in parallel with interrelated aspects of the build, all off site, rather than having to compete for space in the boat. Custom fridges, built in appliances, Corian, stonework or other specialist items can all be built off site, according to an agreed drawing set and tolerances, and then arrive on site just in time to be installed.
