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.

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.
We look at some of the real issues the construction industry faces, and how digitisation can help address them.
At our recent series of NBS Discover events around the UK, we held roundtable discussions with delegates. We wanted to use these events to ask for your thoughts about a number of relevant industry themes including collaboration, specification, office knowledge and customer support.
At the recent Discover events there were a number of presentations from NBS customers. We take a look at their stories in respect to how they are integrating NBS into their existing workflows.
