Cloud-based specification platform connects teams in Newcastle and Vancouver
International design practice Ryder Architecture has become one of the first practices to produce a specification in the cloud using NBS Chorus, the new flagship platform from NBS.
The specification platform has not only provided Ryder with a new level of collaboration across its teams in Newcastle and Vancouver, but the cloud-technology has enabled Ryder to develop its specifications in the office, on-site, and even mid-flight from the UK to Canada.
“NBS Chorus is a welcome addition to Ryder’s digital toolkit of collaborative design tools,” , said Adam James, principal of Ryder’s Vancouver team. “The data driven framework of Chorus allows us to rapidly specify building components and materials in manner that integrates with our existing building information modelling tools, while working in geographically distributed teams.”
Aimed at professionals who need to produce high quality specifications efficiently, NBS Chorus is a collaborative specification platform, designed to support global design and construction.
The use of cloud technology helps ensure that those using the new platform have the latest software and global content at all times – including the latest standards and regulations.
According to NBS, this offers an invaluable improvement in collaboration and efficiencies across whole teams, allowing the different players in a construction project to work in a single place, on the same data. The platform also enables users to integrate the model and the specification, which saves time and reduces the risk of information becoming out of sync.
