nbs-chorus-usms-banner

NBS Chorus includes the highest-quality content authored and maintained by a team of specialist content authors. The latest content library released is the US Master Specification (USMS) content library.

The USMS content library includes a set of pre-written specification clauses and guidance for various disciplines, including Architecture, Structure, Services, Civils, Landscape and Preliminaries structured to the CSI MasterFormat classification system. It has been developed for all types and scales of projects delivered to US standards.

Launching the new content library allows specifiers to develop specifications in the NBS Chorus platform they are familiar with, using innovative functionality such as model integration, collaboration and publication history, but using the content set required for these international projects.
