NBS, the leading specification platform for the construction industry, today announced a new product integration with Autodesk, which will improve collaboration and reduce errors across the design and construction timeline.
NBS has added a new feature that enables users of its new cloud-based specification platform, NBS Chorus, to instantly export a list of submittals from a specification in one click and import them directly into leading Common Data Environments (CDEs), including Autodesk’s BIM 360®.
Submittals are an essential part of the construction process and if managed incorrectly can cause problems for contractors. Connecting the data sets between NBS Chorus and BIM 360 greatly reduces the risk of human error by eliminating the need to manually copy or re-key information, and allows for better collaboration between architects, specifiers and contractors.
The partnership between NBS and Autodesk is already enabling users to work smarter and more safely. The integration of NBS Chorus and Autodesk Revit® allows users to develop their model and specification simultaneously, which greatly reduces the risk of information becoming out of sync.
“We’re thrilled to be continually working with Autodesk,” said Sascia Elliot, head of partnerships, NBS. “There’s a huge opportunity to help our customers work smarter and safer by integrating CDE’s with NBS Chorus. By transforming what was once a timely and manual task to a simple click of a button, this integration with BIM 360 will not only improve accuracy and time efficiency, but will help us work towards a safer industry”
“Autodesk is committed to empowering the construction industry to be more productive,” said Josh Cheney, industry manager, construction technology, Autodesk. “Our work with companies like NBS enables customers to improve their data flow across the construction lifecycle, and ultimately build better.
