NBS Create for professional specifications that ensure peace of mind

Produce professional specifications

Drawing on the most comprehensive library of maintained, pre-written linked technical clauses in the UK construction industry, NBS Create ensures complete peace of mind when it comes to producing precise and robust specifications.

As you make decisions and complete system outline clauses, the rest of your specification is automatically assembled, ensuring consistency and saving you time.

Get specialist help with your specification, every step of the way

NBS Create provides easy access to the latest technical guidance, including the latest regulations and standards from the Construction Information Service.

Regular software and content updates, our NBS Create eLearning course and direct access to technical and software specialists are all included in your subscription - it's like having an NBS specialist on your project team, every step of the way.

Essential to help you meet the Government's BIM mandate

Co-ordinate your project information as it is modelled and specified. Specifications are at the heart of a linked BIM environment and NBS Create makes it easy to access this information, direct from your modelling software, in one click.

Benefit from consistent specifications across your practice

By using an industry-standard tool with a consistent information structure, all project teams and all disciplines across your practice reap the benefits of a single, optimal process.

Using NBS Create means designers can spend time designing, not discussing process or maintaining master specification information.

Develop specification information throughout the project timeline

You may have to write an outline or performance specification for a client on a design and build job or you may wish to develop the full specification through the concept to technical design process. NBS Create allows this information to be built up through the timeline from system descriptions to, if required, full technical record specifications.
