About NBS

How long is the construction timeline?

A length of a construction timeline varies from project to project, but what each project has in common is the stages in the process. From the initial brief to research, modelling, and specification and beyond, the timeline follows a structure set out by the RIBA Plan of Work.

What are the stages of the RIBA Plan of Work?

The RIBA Plan of Work segments and organises the construction timeline into eight simplified stages; (0) Strategic Definition, (1) Preparation and Brief, (2) Concept Design, (3) Developed Design, (4) Technical Design, (5) Construction, (6) Handover and Close Out, (7) In use. Each NBS Product is tailored to provide manufacturer information to architects, in the right format, for the appropriate stage of the timeline. Download our comprehensive guide.

Product information

How do I know which product will work best for me?

NBS products work best together. Each tool in the NBS Manufacturer platform is used by Architects, Specifiers, Engineers and Designers at different stages of the construction timeline. Get listed with RIBA Product Selector set up a face to face meeting or factory tour with RIBA CPD Providers Network, digitise your products for Building Information Modelling (BIM), then make your products available for instant placement in the spec with NBS Plus. You can use any one of these products individually, but use them together – and you’ll be visible to specifiers across the entire project timeline.
