The Specification Base contains information on specifications, processes and products with the aim of enhancing project delivery and saving money. The Base is sponsored by NBS.
NBS has produced specification and construction information products for over 30 years. From 2005 NBS has been publisher of the Building Regulations Approved Documents for England and Wales. NBS is widely used by local authority architects, who have been instrumental in its adoption as the recognised UK standard specification system.
NBS is best known for producing the UK standard specification systems, with choices for Building, Landscape and Engineering Services projects. NBS also has information and project administration products and services to help designers with each phase of a construction contract.
