Benefit from direct access to expert NBS guidance. Select an object in the model and the equivalent ‘general guidance’ page in the NBS guidance displays, with information such as design principles, performance, health and safety, environmental and contractual issues.
Create an outline specification from the design model. One click of a button provides you with a specification that is synchronised with your model.
By doing this not only does this save you time, it also gives you confidence that your model and your specification are the same.
The user may check that all objects are correctly associated with NBS clauses across the project. The report shows the status of all relevant objects and highlights where a clause has been renamed or removed from the specification. You will be guided through the process of fixing these with information such as which user renamed an item and when.
There are thousands of generic and proprietary objects available from hundreds of manufacturers. You can drag and drop these objects straight into your design model. All NBS BIM objects contain references to the equivalent NBS specification clauses.
All objects within the design can be linked to the relevant specification clause using the ‘Associate Object with Clause’ feature.
If a designer’s office have their own BIM objects, they can add the NBS parameters required to enable integration with the specification by using the NBS Revit plug in. This may be done by clicking the NBS button within the Autodesk Revit Family editor.
