CIBSE is proud to endorse NBS as its official specification and product data partner. NBS is a global leading technology platform providing building services engineers with a cloud-based specification system that enables more efficient specification writing and reduced risk. For building product manufacturers, NBS helps grow their business by exposing their products across the construction project timeline.
Tools for the building service industry
NBS Chorus is the industry’s leading specification platform; it enables users to create technical specifications up to 75% faster than writing them manually. It has been designed for collaborative working so that the whole project team can work together on the specification.
The platform includes a range of structured content, including an MEP library, technical guidance and links to the latest standards and manufacturer product data. The NBS team of technical authors maintain the content, which is automatically updated in Chorus, meaning the specification is always up to date – helping you save time and reduce the risk of mistakes.
It’s already helping hundreds of building services engineers around the world, including Hydrock.
NBS Source is a manufacturer product platform created to help specifiers find product information. It includes 26,000 products from over 1,000 manufacturers, covering all aspects of construction, ready to use on your projects. You'll find detailed product specification data, product literature, and as it links to the National BIM Library, you can download digital objects too.
