This exclusive access ensures your products and digital objects are listed exactly where specifiers work, giving you a competitive edge.
Project leads and market intelligence With NBS Source, you gain a vital advantage: insights. Receive notifications when your products are specified, and see practices and projects are choosing your products. Dive into specifier behaviour and industry trends, and use the data to shape your product ranges to make informed business decisions.

“We developed BIM internally, and whilst it was functional, it was not exactly what we required. So further collaboration with NBS took our BIM offering to the level expected from specifiers and contractors. The expertise of the team at NBS has allowed us to generate specifications and focus on the practices actively looking for safe, sustainable and cost-effective floor screeding solutions.”

“NBS Source will ensure we can closely monitor that our information presents correctly, is up to date and is easy to use. More collaborative functionality with specifiers regarding the specification writing process will provide the opportunity to engage more closely during both the decision making and specification writing process. This will lead to more accurate specification of both product and technical content.”

“NBS Source is the place to be if you want to get your products specified in projects.”

BIM authoring Digital transformation of your products has never been easier. At NBS we can create BIM objects for you. We author BIM objects to the internationally recognised NBS BIM Object Standard. This ensures the object acts and performs as it would be expected in the real world as well as containing real-time information about the asset’s performance.
BOS stamping NBS Source ensures quality and reliability as all our BIM objects are authored to the NBS BIM Object Standard. If you already have your own collection of BIM Objects, NBS offers a BOS Stamping service to check and verify them and bring them in line with the standard. We also include key specification data to encourage symmetry between the specification and the digital model.
BIM hosting BIM Objects hosted on NBS Source aren’t just downloaded, they’re seamlessly integrated into BIM models and prominently specified in construction projects worldwide. We're well-versed in the information specifiers seek in BIM content, and our expertise extends to creating BIM objects for all major software systems, including Revit, Graphisoft, Bentley and Vectorworks.
