NBS specs.



At Leaderflush Shapland we are firmly committed to driving
the use of IT to improve procurement methods – but only by user-friendly means to ensure acceptance. Ultimately, we envisage the specifier’s decisions simply generating an on-line model, or ‘virtual doorset’, containing all characteristics including size, performance levels, details, cost, delivery implications, installation requirements and eventual maintenance regimes. Output documents such as specifications and schedules would be automatically and accurately generated by such a model.
