Today, NBS, the leading construction data platform, has announced its partnership with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited (NFRC) to promote standards and guidance within roofing specification to the broader construction industry.
The partnership marks the joining of two recognised industry leaders – NFRC, the UK’s largest roofing trade association and NBS, a company rooted in improving industry and compliance through digital data adoption.
By working together, NBS and the NFRC will bring vast amounts of information and resources to its members and customers, providing support during the specification stage of various building projects.
As a leading voice in roofing developments, NFRC is looking to establish closer links with specifiers by providing them with access to quality technical information and raising awareness of its membership network, ensuring consistent quality specifications across the construction chain.
James Talman, Chief Executive of NFRC commented saying: “Specifiers have a critical role in creating a safer and more sustainable construction industry, and that is why we are delighted to establish a partnership with NBS. Through this collaboration, specifiers can be assured that NFRC’s wealth of technical knowledge and expertise on roofing features within NBS’ platforms, will be available to them. In return, NFRC Members can gain exposure through the NBS Source platform and access specialist NBS Webinars. Together we can help specifiers ensure that they are using the highest quality roofing products and contractors.”
NBS has a long track record in providing information and tools to the construction industry, and in recent years has transformed into a leading software provider. Both companies also plan to work together on digital events such as webinars and discussion panels to enrich the debate on industry topics and better support customers.
Bob Richardson, Head of Technical and Training at NFRC commented saying: “We are pleased to be able to provide NBS with periodic review services and technical knowledge to ensure consistent information is provided throughout the specification process right through to installation. We also welcome the opportunity to be part of future NBS events and webinars.”
NBS conducted 58 different webinars during 2020 on various topics, which were a huge success and attracted over 25,000 registrations.
Commenting on the partnership, Sascia Elliott, Head of Partnerships at NBS, said: “NBS is delighted to collaborate with the NFRC and highlight the benefits and importance of specification in the building timeline. It was a natural fit to partner with the NFRC, an organisation that shares a common goal with us to promote standards and guidance in this skilled profession to those in the wider construction industry. By using NBS products and services, specifiers can help guard against risk, increase efficiency and proactively drive better standards for the benefit of the wider construction community.”
