Specification notes

Record all of your project decisions directly in your specification

A construction project involves lots of different stakeholders. It’s essential to capture everyone’s input effectively when writing the specification, and afterwards to understand why decisions have been made.

The Specification Notes feature in NBS Chorus enables you to record project decisions directly in your specification as it’s developed, e.g. a reason why a clause has been parked, a design preference or an essential health and safety requirement.

 

Specification Notes can help you to:

  • Reduce risk: record the reasons why decisions have been made in one central place, creating a clear audit trail and helping to avoid mistakes being made.
  • Collaborate better: invite the whole project team, including third parties, to view and contribute to the specification in the Specification Notes.
  • Improve efficiency: Specification Notes are a point of reference for the project team, reducing the number of questions arising on a project and helping you to deliver it faster.

Specification Notes are available with an NBS Chorus 2 or 3 subscription; if you'd like to access the feature, please complete the form and one of our team members will be in touch.
