About This CPD

  • GBE were asked to provide training in use of NBS Specification, the Practice had 50 staff at all levels of experience needing this training.
  • We ran a brain storming session with HR and senior staff to get a feeling for what was needed and what could be offered.
  • We proposed 2 half day in-house hands-on workshops for 10 staff at a time.
  • The scope is described in the CPD file and a CPD page

What is in these CPD Workshops?

Session 1 Scope (Half a day)

  • All about Specification and its context
  • Familiar with NBS Binders
  • NBS Work Section Parts
  • Worked Example (Delegates doing their own)
  • Populating insert brackets
  • Familiarity with NBS on disk and server
  • File Naming Convention
  • Worked example (Delegates doing their own)

Session 2 Scope (Half a day)

  • Turning previous project spec into new project spec
  • Improving on NBS
  • Different approach to NBS
  • Including Consultant’s brief in specifications
    • Turning BBA Certificates into Project specifications
    • Turning manufacturer’s literature into specifications
    • Turning manufacturer’s specifications into NBS Compatible
    • Including manufacturer’s specifications in Project Specifications
  • Editing A Preliminaries sections

  • Adding spec from other sources:

What is ‘green’ about it?

  • Nothing in particular, but GBE Heracey™ encompasses …Appropriate, Competent, Effective… which should all come out of a good specification

How does it differ from the NBS training CPD?

  • This is not on a computer, very hands on and real live project specification editing and auditing during the work shop, not the rarely edited work section D20, etc.

How or where can the CPD be used?

  • It can be read on the computer but its real aim is to be a live half-day in-house workshop with BrianSpecMan running the workshop.

Why should you pay to download this CPD?

  • If you want to introduce your staff to NBS Binder and Disk Service
  • If you want them to up to speed as quickly as possible
  • See what is on offer then call BrianSpecMan to run a work shop for you.
