Metrotile partners with NBS to provide a triple specification service

// the building envelope

Metrotile is committed to providing the very best customer support, from our specifiers to our installers and end users.  We’ve partnered with NBS to provide a tailored specification service as we continually strive to improve the technical resources available for our clients. We currently provide three services via NBS:

NBS Plus:

With NBS Plus, those specifying Metrotile products for their building project are able to access our roofing systems via the highly popular NBS Specification software. NBS Plus is a comprehensive database of technical product information that allows the easy and accurate specification of products with just one mouse click.


BIM (Building Information Modelling) is a building design system that enables architects and specifiers to quickly create a 3D representation of their building projects. It encompasses all aspects of building engineering, from rooftops to utility systems, from roads to housing developments. It’s a natural evolution of two dimensional CAD solutions.

While BIM isn’t mandatory for all building projects, please note, that all centrally procured public sector projects have required the use of BIM since 2016.

The NBS National BIM Library runs through Autodesk Revit software. If you use Revit, you can download a plugin from the BIM Library website. The Metrotile BIM Library objects are all free to use.

NBS Build:

Not a member of NBS, or you don’t have the technical know-how to use their software? Don’t worry - as Metrotile now has access to NBS Build and can create an NBS Specification on your behalf. Simply contact Metrotile with project details to arrange this.
