What Specifiers Want 2017 articles
Here we share some of the articles that feature in What Specifiers Want 2017.
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 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.
