Tina will be responsible for technical content on a global scale, with a focus on the definition, alignment and delivery of information and structured data for the digital construction and built environment.
After qualifying in International Business and Information Technology, Tina started her career in project management, before moving focus on the design and development aspects of construction. Since then she has gained over 25 years’ experience in construction, built environment consultancy and master planning, through to major capital project development and asset management.
Since joining NBS as the Head of Technical Information in 2014, Tina has not only helped the business gain global recognition as a technical content specialist for the digital construction industry, but has also become an advocate for promoting digital technology in the North East. Tina works actively with groups in the region such as Dynamo Build, which allows the collaboration of skills and development for digital construction projects such as IC3 - an international centre for digital construction.
On starting her new role, Tina said:
‘In the last few years, the digital construction industry has seen rapid change, and it has been fantastic to be part of NBS in helping shape some of that change'.
As NBS continues to grow globally, I am really excited about the opportunities to work with multiple teams across the globe: focusing on the digital dimension of the built environment, using the content within the NBS platform to deliver digital construction, DE and BIM information and data requirements of the future for our clients

Tina is also passionate about promoting STEM subjects, and works with local groups and schools, mentoring and showing young people the opportunities in the technology and construction industries. Most recently, Tina has been involved in the Northern Women in Leadership course, which provides woman at all levels the opportunity to develop their skills and knowledge in leadership.
Regarding the appointment, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of NBS, Helen Whitfield said…
“I am delighted with Tina’s promotion, her experience and deep understanding of the global construction market will support the next stage of NBS’s ambitions growth plans. Combine this with Tina’s relentless focus on customer advocacy and her passion for leading with purpose, NBS is proud to have Tina promoted to their senior team.”
Working with a global team, Tina has already been instrumental in cementing the presence of NBS around the world. She regularly speaks at industry events in the UK and worldwide. In May, she spoke at BILT ANZ in Australia regarding Uniclass 2015: a unified classification for the industry covering all construction sectors, and a key tool for ensuring global collaboration and reducing risk.
Tina has and will continue to play a key part in the global strategy of the business, following the recent launch of NBS Chorus in both Australia and Canada.
NBS Chorus, a cloud-based specification platform supporting global design and construction, recently launched in Australia and Canada. Since announcing expansion across two continents in 2017, acquiring Canada-based Digicon and setting up in Australia, NBS has updated the NBS National BIM Library and BIM Object Standard tools to include Canadian and Australian content.
The use of cloud technology ensures that those using the new platform have the latest software and global content at all times, improving collaboration and efficiencies across whole teams.
NBS Chorus will help professionals such as designers, architects and engineers work together – no matter where they are in the world – truly supporting global design and construction.
