Organisations team up to promote best practice in roofing specification

NBS, a construction data platform, has announced a new partnership with the National Federation of Roofing Contractors Limited (NFRC) to promote standards and guidance within roofing specification to the wider construction industry.

By working together, NBS said the two organisations will bring ‘vast’ amounts of information and resources to members and customers, providing support during the specification stage of various building projects.

NBS and NFRC also plan to work together on digital events such as webinars and discussion panels.

James Talman, chief executive of NFRC, said, “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 conducted 58 webinars during 2020 on various topics.

Sascia Elliott, head of partnerships at NBS, commented, “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.”
