Alan Northen, our Managing Director, has been pro-actively involved in the launch of NRM2, working closely on this with RICS since 2013 as part of an initiative to streamline the transition from the long-standing SMM7.
Through this early understanding and uptake of NRM2, Alan and our teams were quickly able to identify an urgent need for an in-depth Training Seminar, which we created exclusively for our Clients.
As a result of demand with highly positive feedback, we are very proud that our in-depth NSS Seminar – NRM2: Changing Construction – now constitutes 1hr CPD Training, accredited by RICS and CIOB for its members around the UK.
More than seventy delegates attended NSS’s first dedicated NRM2 Seminar in Bristol in September 2013, including representatives from local consultants, contractors, councils and their associated support services..
It is clear that this Seminar event has provided a vital platform for sharing expertise and knowledge of practical applications and implications for working with NRM1, NRM2 and NRM3, plus Business Information Modelling (BIM).
As a result, many of our Clients have since asked us to run in-house workshops and training sessions to develop their understanding of NRM2. Alan is considered amongst our client base in the South West to be a highly knowledgeable and insightful expert on NRM2.
During 2020, a second edition of NRM2 is expected to be published, and it is our continued aim to support this being ‘contractor focused’ to meet both the known and anticipated needs of our Clients in the future.
