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.
The recent global WannaCry ransomware attack has put information security firmly back in the headlines. Here we show how PAS 1192-5 principles can be embedded to deliver a security approach for built assets in a collaborative digital construction project that’s both proportionate and robust.
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.

Ben Highfield, Surface Product Manager at Microsoft UK, discusses how putting people at the centre of your digitisation strategy is vital.
One of the most common questions asked of NBS is what the differences are between structuring specifications by Common Arrangement of Work Sections (CAWS) and Uniclass 2015.
Paul Shillcock, co-author of PAS 1192-2 and author of ISO 19650-2 and the UK National Annex, talks to us about the journey to ISO 19650.
Arguably the biggest external factor influencing the construction industry is the world’s rising population. A recent World Economic Forum publication on the future of construction reported that the population of the world’s urban areas is increasing by 200 000 people per day.
More than two years after the Government’s 2016 mandate for collaborative 3D BIM on all publicly-funded projects, we want to know your thoughts on BIM. Have you adopted it? How embedded is it into your organisation? How is the industry doing at defining level 3 BIM?
Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) is a non-proprietary data format for the publication of a subset of building information models (BIM) focused on delivering asset data as distinct from geometric information. Stephen Hamil examines COBie and discusses the role of CAD and master specification systems in creating this data model.
