Our mission

The future of construction is digital, and luckily for us at NBS, technology gets us going. We’re all about helping the industry build safer, more sustainable buildings that make a positive impact on the future of the built environment and making it easy to do so.

How do we do it? Our cloud-based technology platform for specifiers and manufacturers enables our customers to collaborate better than ever, making construction specifications smarter, rich in detail and safeguarded for the future. Pretty cool.

What we do

Specification is quite simply the skill of recording the detailed requirements for a construction project. From the materials used to the standards to be followed. It's critical to ensure things are done the right way. 

NBS is a 50-year-old tech scale-up – with our finger on the pulse of the construction industry. We help architects, specifiers, and engineers write their specifications with our market-leading platform NBS Chorus. 

We also connect manufacturers and specifiers through NBS Source. A mutually beneficial platform that helps specifiers select products confidently and efficiently whilst giving manufacturers a unique opportunity to showcase their products at the right time.

Our technical content and expertise underpin our products – we do it all!
