GBE Feedback

  • We are keen to have you back in for another CPD session for next month if possible.
  • The practice found the last session very informative and it would be great if we could do a few more to gain a better insight into NBS.

    • project specification writing
    • practice template specifications
    • GBE Specification work sections
  • NBS Building and NBS Create can speed up specification production time
    • but time and manpower is needed to be invested as a Practice overhead.
  • Creating Practice Template Specifications in NBS Building
    • Levels, Hierarchies, Inheritance and Validation
    • ticks crosses and ?s
    • Editing at multiple levels
  • Other practices fail to engage in the efficiencies if offers and waste time and fees

    • Products
    • Projects
    • Packages

  • Quarterly overheads of maintaining a Practice Template

  • How NBS Create works for BIMers
Future gazing:
