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.
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.
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.
