161 performance factors simultaneously. Our team can now analyse vast datasets to assess materials based on durability, sustainability, weight, cost and aesthetics, among other critical factors. By making data-driven decisions, we can confidently choose the optimum materials for specific functions, ensuring that each interior space is not only beautiful but also functionally superior. Sustainability is a core value at Trimline, and AI plays a pivotal role in our pursuit of eco-friendly practices. Through comprehensive audits of building techniques, we can identify areas where material use can be minimised, optimising resource utilisation without compromising on quality or aesthetics. Additionally, AI enables us to explore innovative construction methods that reduce the reliance on adhesives and other potentially harmful substances. It can help us suggest alternative materials which may be a functional and aesthetic match to those specified, but more sustainable, leading to more environmentally friendly interiors. Moreover, deconstruction is a vital consideration for sustainable design, and with AI’s assistance, we can create structures that are easily disassembled, facilitating responsible disposal and recycling at the end of their lifecycle. Like any new technological advancement, AI brings with it a set of advantages and potential disadvantages. The most significant benefit is the boost in efficiency. By leveraging AI’s processing power, we can automate many repetitive daily tasks, freeing up our highly skilled workforce to focus on the more complex aspects of marine interior outfitting and communicating with clients – both key to a successful project. Precision is also a big win here. Having an AI companion leads to fewer human errors in mundane tasks, Trimline’s team can save hours of design time by using the AI-powered Concept Box tool to quickly turn text into detailed visual design concepts that can be modified according to the client’s preference
