NBS National BIM Library is a trusted and expert consultative service that authors and hosts manufacturers’ product information as BIM objects. The fastest-growing source of BIM content in the UK, it places your products directly in front of thousands of construction professionals at the time of specification.

We have detailed guidance to help you create your own BIM objects that meet the NBS BIM Object Standard.
