Discover how NBS Create has been designed to enable you to quickly and easily specify construction products either generically or by using manufacturer and product references. This guide also illustrates how to export a full list of all the manufacturers and product specified in your NBS Create specification, plus how to output into a COBie format.
Specifying products has just become simpler
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.
A good master specification system must follow the principles of the seven Cs - we take a look at each one in our downloadable infographic
The annual NBS National BIM Report is now recognised as one of the industry’s most comprehensive reviews into the use of BIM. In this eighth report, we glean an insight into the achievements and challenges of the industry two years on from the BIM Mandate.
