BIM (Building Information Modelling)
The revolutionary force of Building Information Modelling continues to reverberate around the construction industry. Tap into specialist insight and analysis on BIM from NBS.
Don't let fear stop you from reaping the benefits of adopting an organisational approach to Building Information Modelling (BIM). Here we explore how to get started when it comes to auditing and implementing new workflows to better support digital construction.
This article introduces some new public beta functionality that allows models and specifications to be uploaded and viewed from the context of a project within the NBS BIM Toolkit. We’re hoping that this new functionality will be well received by NBS users within their existing BIM workflows.
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 share the main talking points from our discussions on the future of digital construction at Autodesk University London this week.
The NBS Online Viewer allows models and specifications to be uploaded and viewed from the context of a project from within the NBS BIM Toolkit. We caught up with the team at BDP to find out how they took the tool for a test drive on their Glasgow Queen Street project.
The rise of digital construction has allowed contemporary architects to develop workflows in collaboration with those working in design and construction. AD explores what this means in the workplace and how new working practices are delivering better client outcomes in Workflows: Expanding Architecture's Territory in the Design and Delivery of Buildings.
Industry Foundation Classes - or IFC, for short, makes it possible to hold and exchange relevant data between different software applications and is at the heart of openBIM. We explore interoperability for digital construction in this beginner's guide.

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, the latest report is packed with a range of insight and expertise, it gives a snapshot of the changes the industry has been going through since the BIM mandate was implemented in April 2016.
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.
Graphisoft has developed a new tool to enable designers and manufacturers to create BIM objects suitable for use in ARCHICAD without GDL experience or programming knowledge. To show just how easy the tool is to use we've developed a broad set of generic FFE objects and made them available on the NBS National BIM Library.
Uniclass 2015 is a dynamic classification for the construction industry. Our latest update features minor changes to seven tables in response to user requests, respecting the need for a period of stability and minimum change to assist adoption of the Uniclass 2015 classification.
