NBS Create

Save time and hassle and get it right first time by letting us use this new tool to create your specification for you. NBS Create contains project management sections and is built for BIM, so if you are unfamiliar with the software, we’ll do the work for you.

NBS Building and NBS Plus

We can write concise, technically accurate and up-to-date specifications for building projects for you using NBS Building and NBS Plus.

Altro safety floors 
NBS Plus model specification guides for Altro safety floors are available in an NBS format as hard copy, on disk or online. These offer full guidance on completion of all aspects of a successful floor installation, from base preparation and underlays to jointing, coving and detailing. 

Wall cladding and doorsets
NBS style specifications for Altro Fortis and Altro Whiterock wall cladding systems, plus standard and bespoke doorsets are also available.

Enhanced NBS Building specifications
Let us work with you to add further value to your specification with our Enhanced specification service. With this type of specification, we fully package all the components of your specification in one place to a much greater extent than with a standard NBS.

We can provide bespoke information about your choice of product in your specific application in your specific sector. This could include comprehensive detailing between transitions, the right accessories and contact information, technical diagrams, certifications, cleaning information for your environment and the contaminants in it, all relevant support materials, case studies, testimonials and samples.
