Customer Spotlight: Liquasil make specifiers’ lives easier with NBS Source

Liquasil is a manufacturer of specialist silicone roof coatings. We caught up with its Director Dave Carter to find out how the manufacturer is using NBS Source to help make it easier and safer to specify its products.

Liquasil is a manufacturer of specialist silicone roof coatings, created to fill a gap in the market spotted when Liquasil’s owners were trying to specify asbestos roof coatings that held BBA (British Board of Agrement) certification. We caught up with its Director Dave Carter to find out how the manufacturer is meeting the needs of specifiers by using NBS Source. 

At Liquasil as we were already familiar with the specification process, we spotted the value of using NBS Source to get our products in front of architects, specifiers and decision-makers. 

Our partner business, Commercial Property Surveys Ltd, is a chartered building surveyor that already used the NBS Chorus platform to create specifications for projects, so when it came to introducing Liquasil’s product range to specifiers and architects, there was really only one direction that made sense.

Safety information is crucial and Liquasil’s presence on NBS Source means architects can now collate all the relevant information for specifications in one place. This also reduces the risk of product substitution as a ‘value engineering’ exercise, since specifiers will have already designed using our product as a core element.

When our systems were given BBA approval, we began aiming to win the confidence of leading specifiers through a combination of product testing, certification, and brand awareness. To build that awareness, the Liquasil team began creating RIBA-accredited CPD sessions for building surveying practices based on learnings from our surveying company.

Thanks to the experience gained by our partner business, we already knew the value of placing detailed product information in front of architects at an early stage, and how to add even more value by creating training materials through CPD.

'Any construction manufacturer needs to consider where their target audience lies. If they wish to gain credibility from specifiers, then they need to be involved with NBS. Specifiers recognise the value of NBS platforms and use it regularly, giving manufacturers an unmissable opportunity to be part of the specification journey at every level.'

 

 

NBS has created a streamlined and more collaborative way to work with specifiers all the way through the specification process, saving time on projects and making it easy to reference project-specific information at a glance.
 
Our use of the NBS platform is increasing because we understand from a specifier’s perspective just how important having all of the correct information in one place is. We have uploaded our case studies to Source, showing various installations so that specifiers can see what they can expect from our products. 

For construction product manufacturers, working with NBS means discovering new ways to get your products in front of specifiers at the critical stages of their decision making.
