I am Alan Smith, NBS Labs Manager at NBS. I live in sunny Northumberland with my wife Kaye, our son Max and our daughter Chloe. I started at NBS back in 2005, when I joined I was the main developer of NBS Building, NBS Landscape and NBS Engineering Services. More recently, I was one of the leads on NBS Create and the NBS BIM Toolkit.
In my most recent role, I manage a team of developers looking at future development of NBS products and services. We like to keep up to date with the latest technologies to see how they could benefit both NBS and our customers. As an introverted software developer, I’m not the best public speaker but you might have seen me speak about the BIM Toolkit at a couple of BIM conferences.
I also have an interest in micro-computing (I have too many Raspberry Pi’s!), electronics and the Internet of Things. I’m really interested to see how these all combine to change the construction industry in the future.
