NBS Head Office

Today, NBS, the leading provider of connected construction information, launches launched NBS Chorus for Small Works, a brand-new package of their award winning specification platform NBS Chorus, created specifically for architects, engineers and designers who write specifications for smaller works and projects. This powerful platform enables smaller projects specifiers to access the full functionality and features of NBS Chorus, further enhanced with a handpicked suite of specification content relevant to smaller projects.

Summary

Much of the industry is still working remotely, so embracing digital technology is more important than ever before to enable teams to stay connected and projects moving. This is reflected in the Construction Leadership Council’s roadmap to recovery for the industry which calls upon businesses to adopt new working technologies.

A cloud-based tool, users can work from any connected device, including Apple Mac, keeping projects on track regardless of where the team is located. Multiple users across different offices and locations can develop specifications together, making instant updates. The innovative specification notes feature records all project decisions directly in the specification.

Able to plug-in to many major design tools, including Autodesk Revit, Graphisoft Archicad and Vectorworks, it seamlessly allows the architectural model to be updated as the specification changes.

Furthermore, it will also allow smaller projects to benefit from access content aligned to the latest standards and regulations, guaranteeing robust specifications and reducing risk. Chorus will also make it easier to maintain the golden thread of information for your projects, creating an accurate and up-to-date digital record.

NBS Chorus for Small Works is suitable for new build or refurbishment projects that are simple jobs and not overly technically complex, such as teaching blocks, retail/industrial units and so on.

This version of Chorus has a specially-selected set of NBS content, covering all the areas typically needed for smaller or less technically complex projects. NBS Chorus for Small Works makes decision-making easier for specifiers as it links with NBS Source, the leading platform for construction products. NBS Source enables users to find, select and specify consistent, easily comparable product data including performance criteria, environmental credentials and third-party certification.

NBS Chorus for Small Works benefits

NBS Innovation Director, Dr.Stephen Hamil, says, “Cloud-based specification has been rapidly adopted by practices working on larger projects. Until now specifiers working on simpler projects, have been unable to benefit. NBS Chorus for Small Works will now transform specification production in these practices, allowing for seamless remote collaboration and the ability to work more effectively. Until now many firms have been using standard word processing software to write specifications. Not only is this time consuming, it’s prone to error. Now teams can collaborate on the specification, from any device, whatever the location.”

He adds, “Practices can deliver more billable work to a higher standard while reducing risk.”

Jeremy Foster, founder J.Foster Architects says, “NBS Chorus is the future. It has a familiar interface to existing tools, is quick and easy to use, with all the functionality I need.” He adds, “The fact that you can edit the spec in Revit is very powerful as it reduces the chances of contradictory information in the model or specification. And it bridges the gap between Mac and PC, which could be the Holy Grail”

NBS Chorus was awarded the ‘Best New BIM Product’ award at the BIM Show Live held on 25th February 2020.
