Advisory Panel

The Advisory Panel is a group of about 30 built environment professionals brought together by NBS. We consult with the Panel to discuss the current issues facing the industry and deepen our understanding of how technical information is used in design and construction.

Panel members benefit from sharing information, ideas and networking with fellow professionals from different disciplines. We also share some of our thinking and development ideas at the early stages.

The current panel is comprised of architects, technologists, cost consultants, engineers, contractors, facilities managers and manufacturers from private and public sector organizations. The panel members have different areas of interest and expertise, and come from many different places. Some, but not all, members are NBS customers.

We engage with Panel members in different ways with the focal point being a series of meetings. These meetings take place in a variety of locations around the UK.
