NBS is a global leading technology platform that combines the best content and connectivity for anyone involved in the design, supply and construction of the built environment. Thousands of users interact daily with our tools to create specifications, find products and develop their digital models. Our platform is used by organisations of all sizes from small architecture and engineering firms, to the very largest global construction companies. We enable our customers to work safer and reduce their risk by providing expert content at their fingertips and work smarter through an intelligent set of connected tools which help them develop and manage their project information faster and more accurately. For building product manufacturers, we can raise awareness of their products and put them in front of decision-makers at the point of specification and product selection. Our roots lie in the National Building Specification, which for over 50 years has been helping the construction industry build better and with lower risk. Our future lies in cloud-based technologies and connected data, as we fast become the information marketplace for the construction industry. We play an active role on many cross-industry bodies and groups, representing a wide range of construction disciplines including architecture, design and engineering. In 2018 we also took a significant investment from LDC, the private equity arm of Lloyds Banking Group, to help fund our growth and global expansion. In 2020 NBS announced it was joining the Byggfakta Group.
