Free NBS BIM Toolkit

From the NBS website...

What you need to know in 90 seconds.

The free-to-use NBS BIM Toolkit will benefit both public and private sector construction projects. It provides step-by-step help to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset lifecycle. This toolkit is an indispensable way of delivering projects to meet the requirements of Level 2 BIM, in preparation for the Government mandated use of this on all public sector projects by 2016.

The benefits.

The free-to-use NBS BIM Toolkit has been developed by NBS experts and industry partners and gives you the power to:

For clients and asset managers

Comprehensively define information requirements to ensure your needs are met and better project outcomes are guaranteed.

For design and construction teams

Assemble a team with clearly assigned roles and responsibilities to work collaboratively on your Level-2 BIM project.

For construction manufacturers

Provide digital information quickly and easily to specifiers on thousands of construction projects.

The features.

The NBS BIM Toolkit is an integral part of the suite of documents and tools that underpin the delivery of UK Level 2 BIM allowing you to:

Define information requirements

Easily produce the information requirements, aligned to specific project stages, for insertion into key documentation such as Employer’s Information Requirements.

Manage the delivery of this information

Develop and manage this information through the project timeline using a standard digital plan of work that is built for BIM.

A comprehensive set of definition templates

Save time by referencing thousands of expertly researched definition templates, all classified by a construction-wide unified classification system to give a common UK construction language.

A real team effort.

The BIM Toolkit project was initiated by HM Government’s BIM Task Group and funded by Innovate UK.


Development was provided by NBS in association with the BIM Academy, RICS, Microsoft, BDP, Mott MacDonald, Newcastle University and Laing O’Rourke.


Support was provided by APM, BIFM, CIBSE, CIOB, ICE, IStructE, RIBA and RICS.
