Scope and Contents - Small Works

← Back to NBS Chorus

 

Scope of content - UK - CAWS (Small Works)

Libraries of pre-written specification clauses, guidance and manufacturer product information are written by our multi-disciplinary specialist team.

NBS Chorus covers multi-discipline content, which means that an accurate specification can be written in less time, avoiding the risk of duplicated or conflicting content.

The Small Works library contains a selection of clauses and associated technical guidance from the UK CAWS content. This concise scope of content is intended for use on simple construction projects which involve architectural, landscape, and associated building services work.
