Head of Digital Union, Rachel Peacock said: “Having NBS onboard has been a huge advantage for Digital Union. The team has been very supportive over the past 18-months helping us host events, providing content and advice for the creative and digital industry to utilise as well as providing valuable insights into the construction industry creating new business opportunities for our members.

“As a growing company, their values align with our own, and they are passionate about attracting and retaining talent right here in the North East which is another reason we love having them onboard. We’ve also greatly benefitted from their input on the Digital Union board and Manifesto Task Group.

“They are leading the way in digital evolution within construction, some of which will be on display at this year’s Great Exhibition of the North.”

Upon renewing the deal, Robin Cordy, Director of Products and Services at NBS said: “NBS is delighted to further extend our partnership with Digital Union. We are passionate about supporting and developing the North East digital economy, and working with Digital Union gives us a great platform to do this. We look forward to working together over the coming year to continue the progress made already."

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.
