Introducing SpeedSpec specification templates to NBS Chorus

SpeedSpec is a well respected and widely used Australian specification content set that has been available to specifiers in Word doc format via SpecPack for over 20 years.

SpeedSpec content is now available in a fully digital format via NBS Chorus. The content is concise and customisable, ideal for architects and designers who write specifications for smaller works and projects.
