Our roots lie in the National Building Specification, which for over 40 years has been helping the construction industry build better and with lower risk.
NBS is backed by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), who are a significant shareholder, and industry advocate for us. Through our relationship with the RIBA, we have unique knowledge of and access to the architecture and design communities. In 2018 we also took a significant investment from LDC, to help fund our growth and global expansion.
We also play an active role on many cross-industry bodies and groups, representing other construction disciplines including engineering.
