Industry professionals interested in learning about the latest version of the nation’s leading computer-aided design (CAD) standard should mark their calendars for May 5, from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET. That’s when the developers of the United States National CAD Standard® (NCS) Version 6—The American Institute of Architects (AIA), Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS)—will hold a new webinar entitled “Introduction to the NCS V6.”

The United States National CAD Standard (NCS) streamlines and simplifies the exchange of building design and construction data from project development throughout the life of a facility. It coordinates the efforts of the entire industry by classifying electronic building design data consistently allowing streamlined communication among owners and design and construction project teams. Use of the NCS can reduce costs and produce greater efficiency in the design and construction process.

This free, informational webinar will provide industry professionals the opportunity to learn more about the NCS, the benefits of acquiring Version 6 and the added features, such as the new building information modeling (BIM) module. The webinar also will include a question and answer segment. Attendees can submit their specific questions upon registering for the event.

To sign up for the webinar, “Introduction to the NCS V6,” to be held May 5 from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET, register now.
