The construction industry has changed for manufacturers. It was not so long ago that manufacturers would distribute stencils for architects to draw drawing details. Until recently, at NBS, we posted hard copy RIBA Product Selector product directories to thousands of offices in the UK. Additionally, we had an office library service which involved going into organisations’ office libraries to place the latest manufacturer literature on the correct shelves.
The digital revolution has changed all of this. Construction professionals demand efficiencies and the most up-to-date information so that they can make the correct decisions quickly and minimise risks on projects.
