David Glass will be responsible for building and maintaining NBS high quality software products and services and will provide guidance and technical direction to other development team members.

This role is critical in enabling NBS to continue to deliver responsive, robust and secure software products that satisfy customer needs.  

David joins NBS from Shout Digital and brings over 15 years’ experience in the IT industry covering many aspects across full stack development, leadership, mentoring, project planning and DevOps.

ABOUT NBS: NBS is committed to offering distinctive, innovative specification and information solutions to construction industry professionals and are proud to be leading the construction industry in its digital evolution. Our origins lie in the National Building Specification and for over 40 years we have developed and produced NBS products which support the built environment. Our NBS specification products cover construction, engineering services and landscape design.

More recently we have developed an integrated Building Information Modelling (BIM) platform that has been designed to support global design and construction. It currently has four major components:

  • NBS Bim Toolkit. BIM execution plan, roles and responsibilities.
  • NBS Create. BIM specification and knowledge platform.
  • NBS National BIM Library. BIM object library, generic and actual.
  • Construction Information Service (CIS). Standards and regulations.

CIS is delivered via a joint venture with IHS Markit. This relationship has successfully prospered for many years.

Our products are recognised as being individually effective in their own right, but via the linking of the data, classification and integration, the true power comes through these connections across the NBS BIM platform. Combining world leading technology with expert knowledge, NBS is trusted to help construction industry professionals make the best project decisions.
