The annual NBS National BIM Report is now recognised as one of the industry’s most comprehensive reviews into the use of BIM. Now in its seventh year, we distil some of the key findings from this year's survey.
In November 2016 we launched our latest survey in a bid to understand how the industry is changing the way it writes specifications as it continues to adopt digital ways of working. We're now ready to share the results in the NBS Specification Report 2017.
Following the launch of What Specifiers Want 2017, we asked four specifiers from a variety of practices, to share their experiences of specification, product selection and manufacturer support.
Our technical team author NBS specification products and are available to help customers who are using these tools for specification writing. The team members' backgrounds are diverse, with many years of experience working in the construction industry and producing their own specifications. Here we introduce you to some of the team as they share their specification experiences with you.
Through BIM information can be provided to a standard data structure. This increasingly allows project teams to digitally verify that the information that is being requested has been delivered. In this article, NBS Labs Manager Alan Smith, looks at what is possible now in terms of BIM and verification.
The latest update to the NBS BIM Toolkit represents an ongoing commitment to maintain and develop this essential piece of the BIM Level 2 jigsaw beyond the April 2016 government funding end date.
What is BIM? NBS experts explore definitions of the process that sees construction industry professionals collaborate on a range of data that comes together in a federated digital Building Information Model. We also explore a range of essential BIM tools and resources.
We've produced a manufacturers version of the 2016 National BIM Report - our study into UK adoption and awareness of Building Information Modelling (BIM). Download the full, free report including full summary findings and expert insight and analysis.
