Right first time specifications
Collaborating through NBS Chorus helps specifiers to get their coatings specifications right the first time and importantly in digital format, which is crucial in order to achieve a ‘Golden Thread’ of information. This has helped to strengthen the relationship between them as a manufacturer and the architects.
We have recently worked with PPG to develop our Master Files for paint system clauses, I am pleased to say that through this collaboration we have our first NBS Chorus specification that has worked first time and is set up exactly how it should be to integrate with our way of working.” – Kevin Hilton, Associate at Gilling Dod Architects
Julie believes that when manufacturers are able to share their unique level of understanding of their products with specifiers, it is much more likely to lead to an accurate and high quality specification.
Manufacturers have the specialist knowledge and experience to advise on the best systems. That knowledge promotes ‘right first time’ specifications because we’ve got the most up-to-date information on our own products. Collaboration removes the guesswork.
PPG has enhanced product data on our manufacturer product platform NBS Source, for all of its paint systems including decorative, woodworks and protective coatings, making it easy to add detailed information about its products to specifications.
“Because NBS Source and NBS Chorus are connected, being able to ‘drag and drop’ into the specification has made the process easier when working remotely while also ensuring accuracy.”
Thanks to the level of collaboration that is facilitated by NBS platforms, PPG Architectural Coatings is now able to offer specification writing as an additional service in its offering to specifiers.
We’ve now got architects that come back to us with projects time and time again.
According to research by NBS and the Construction Products Association, over half of the specifiers surveyed said that they found it too difficult to find the right information for products to allow them to specify effectively. NBS platforms are able to help manufacturers like PPG provide the information specifiers need for their projects.
