Additional Information

The NBS Plug-in for Autodesk Revit is a free tool that allows you to coordinate your Revit model with your NBS specification or schedule of work.  The Plug-in enables you to add NBS National BIM Library objects to a model, to link the model to an NBS specification and to associate objects with NBS specification clauses.

This integration of geometry and data will simplify decision making, provide access to content through the entire project workflow and enable collaboration across the different disciplines, saving time and money.  This means that Architects, Surveyors, and Engineers can gain access to critical apps.
