Understanding NBS Specifications

Love them or hate them, but do they effectively communicate what you want to happen on your project?

Increasingly, non relevant clauses litter our specifications potentially causing confusion and ultimately meaning you don’t get what you thought you asked for on site.

This seminar will take you through both poor and good examples of NBS style specifications to demonstrate it’s all in the communication!
