Building Information Modelling

NBS and Building Information Modelling

At NBS, we are investing heavily in turning our specification and product information into digital objects in anticipation of the widespread adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM). This information will be at the heart of the process and efficiency improvements for the industry. As part of this investment, NBS will be regularly publishing guidance and information on BIM resources for the construction industry.
