Ever thought of setting up your own practice? We launch a new series that will set you on the path to success. This time, what's your proposition? Can you shape a business around the bits of work that you find engaging and, even, fun?
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.
In November 2016 we launched our latest survey in a bid to understand how the industry is changing the way it writes specifications as it continues to adopt digital ways of working. We're now ready to share the results in the NBS Specification Report 2017.
We are pleased to release the findings of our Specification Survey for Manufacturers. The findings of this survey are an invaluable resource for understanding the specification process, the needs of specifiers, and what they need from manufacturers to help them realise design intent.
Following the launch of What Specifiers Want 2017, we asked four specifiers from a variety of practices, to share their experiences of specification, product selection and manufacturer support.
Results from the NBS Specification Survey highlight specifiers’ needs and the challenges that they face when producing specifications. But there are several different ways in which specifiers may approach this task and attempt to overcome these challenges. We ask Malcolm Brown, Director of FaulknerBrowns Architects, to share his experience of producing specifications and his opinion on how manufacturers can help them.
David Wigglesworth, Managing Director of SFS intec UK, shares his experiences and opinions about how manufacturers can support specifications and ensure that design intent is not broken.
NBS Research Manager, David Bain, explores some of the key themes from this year's What Specifiers Want report and shows how NBS can help manufacturers build lasting relationships with specifiers.
We often talk of the digital construction revolution but what are the top tech trends on a mission to transform the industry? We look to the skies, welcome our new robot overlords, and discover what a world powered by big data will deliver.
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.
Uniclass 2015 is a unified classification system for the UK construction industry covering all sectors of the industry. Here we explore Uniclass 2015, introducing key concepts, explain how the tables are coded and how to view and download the Uniclass 2015 tables.
Employers are responsible for defining the deliverables required at each stage of a construction project as a digital plan of work (DPoW). This plan will cover the entire project timeline - from developing a strategy to managing the built asset. Here we explore the digital plan of work stages and show how content develops over time.
