NBS Specification Report 2013

Our NBS Specification Report 2013 was published recently.

Some interesting findings:
  • 1/2 of users are using RIBA POW 2013 on at least one project
  • 2/3 believe that the brief is the first stage of specification development
  • nearly 80% reuse old specifications
  • 1/4 still mark up a paper copy
  • The biggest cause of difficulties is "the drawings and spec contradicting each other"
  • 95% agree that "there should be a direct link between specifications and drawings"
  • 94% now believe that in the future specifications will be distributed digitally only
...and in addition to the analysis, also some very good articles.
  • An insight into specification future from our CEO Richard Waterhouse (@rpwaterhouse)
  • Some thoughts from specification expert Andy Jobling from Levitt Bernstein
  • Specifications through the project lifetime from our Content Development manager John Gelder (@JohnGelderNBS)
  • Thoughts on how specification is taught from Architectural Technology student Elisabeth Matuki, graduate Alex Nesbitt and Nick Ivill.
