The BIM Toolkit was an Innovate UK-initiated project launched in April 2015 as part of the Level 2 BIM package of tools and standards. Following this initial launch, NBS developed and maintained the platform for over six years, and made it free for users. In 2022, there will be some changes to the content and functionality within the BIM Toolkit.
Specifications for architecture, engineering, landscape, and the built environment give construction teams a detailed overview of the project work, required performance, and product selections. This article answers some commonly asked questions about specification and NBS.
