NBS is a technology platform for the construction industry. Thousands of users interact daily with their tools to create specifications, find products and develop digital models.
NBS’s roots lie in the National Building Specification, which for over 40 years has been helping the construction industry build better and with lower risk. Their future lies in cloud-based technologies and connected data, as they are becoming an information marketplace for the construction industry.
NBS is backed by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), who are a significant shareholder, and industry advocate. Through their relationship with the RIBA, they have unique knowledge of and access to the architecture and design communities. NBS also plays an active role on many cross-industry bodies and groups, representing other construction disciplines including engineering.
The NBS platform is used by organisations of all sizes from small architecture and engineering firms, to the very largest global construction companies. We enable our customers to work safer and reduce their risk by providing expert content at their fingertips; and work smarter through an intelligent set of connected tools which help them develop and manage their project information faster and more accurately.
