Specification Consultancy

In order to navigate the evolving landscape of the built environment, a robust specification is essential to mitigate project risks amid increasingly onerous insurance requirements. With our worldwide reach and expertise across all sectors, RLB has the capability to deliver tailored solutions to both developers and architects to meet global requirements.

Manage and mitigate project risks

RLB stands as a frontrunner in the realm of specification consultancy. Drawing from extensive practical project experience, we have acquired a profound understanding of the multifaceted demands of projects, ensuring that our specifications mirror the nuanced landscape of procurement and adhere meticulously to local specification formats and standards. Our proficiency spans across all sectors, and our global footprint enables us to provide specification services tailored to diverse geographical contexts worldwide.

Implement a tailor-made solution

Given the paramount importance of accuracy in navigating the complexities of procurement and contracts, specifications serve as the cornerstone, fostering seamless communication among project stakeholders. Our specification experts deliver tailored solutions, enhancing value and mitigating risks for developers and architects. With a diverse array of options, we enhance project efficiency and meet multifaceted requirements.

Gain an expert perspective

Specifications can be produced through a variety of channels and in different ways, so it may be worthwhile calling on an expert to review your specification if content is produced in-house. RLB can conduct a comprehensive review of your documentation including commentary on areas of design responsibility and procurement, making you aware of potential specification risks and gaps.

Improve delivery with digitalisation

Digitalisation is playing an increasingly important role in the built environment sector. In response, RLB offers flexible procurement software solutions that can be seamlessly integrated into BIM workflows and environments. Our experts are committed to providing you with content that is appropriate and aligned to contractual deliverables.
