National Design Consultancy (NDC) has written its first specification using NBS Chorus. Read how it’s helping the team of engineers to work more efficiently across multiple offices.
In 2016 it was announced that NBS has become the first UK organisation to become an Autodesk Solution Associate. Both organizations have been working closely together to develop the next generation of information and knowledge management solutions.
Ryder Architecture’s Newcastle and Vancouver teams were among the first to produce a specification using NBS Chorus. Here they explain how it helps the practice to work efficiently across the world.
Working digitally to a standard process will help transform the construction industry. This article is an adaption of a recent presentation on the main stage of Autodesk University London taking an in-depth look into this topic.
Quantum Flooring Solutions is the UK’s leading independent stair nosing and accessories manufacturer UK. We caught up with them to discuss working with architects and specifiers through NBS.
In early 2018, Multiplex internally mandated the use of BIM and digital construction on all new projects, regardless of client requirements. We decided that this level of commitment was the only way to deliver our projects in the most efficient, safe and timely manner.
The utilisation of 3D authoring tools enables us to be adaptive to project needs and typology. Such tools are able to hold classification data (such as Uniclass and IFC). They can communicate with database solutions (such as Codebook and NBS Chorus) to integrate with cloud-hosted common data environments (CDE) and other modelling tools, through the use of the IFC-neutral file format.
Bond Bryan deals with BIM in two aspects: Architecture and Digital. Our Architecture team is primarily focused on the creation, sharing and coordination of information models, whilst our Digital team is focused on providing specialist Information Management and Coordination Management services to our architectural teams, and also other clients, consultants and contractors.
Earlier this year, we were offered the opportunity to present at the Discover NBS events in Edinburgh and Newcastle upon Tyne. The suggested theme of the presentation was our digital strategy. We used this as a chance to reflect on the technological advancements that the practice has undertaken in what we thought was our recent history, only to realise that digital technologies have been part of our processes for over 30 years.
Architects, designers and engineers’ fundamental skills rely on their creative and technical abilities, but technology is increasingly changing the way that they work.
Here we share what teams told us about pushing BIM boundaries...proof positive that there's never been a more exciting time to be involved in design and construction. Read their stories in full.
