Salt Lake City, UT (June 2, 2016) — Sloan has partnered with ARCOM, the leader in building specification services and tools, to promote Sloan products to architects, engineers and design professionals through MasterSpec, the ultimate software resource for producing specifications.
ARCOM carefully reviews each manufacturer and its products to ensure they meet the quality criteria for which MasterSpec is known. MasterSpec, a product of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), has become the most trusted and comprehensive specification system in the building industry. ARCOM provides manufacturer and product information for thousands of products. Product specifiers can quickly access a list of building product manufacturers organized by sections. ARCOM’s team of professional spec writers have worked with Sloan to modify original MasterSpec sections to include content applicable to Sloan products.
“Sloan’s partnership with ARCOM is our latest effort to provide architects, interior designers and engineers with the most comprehensive—and easy to specify—commercial plumbing offering,” said Sloan Vice President of Marketing Parthiv Amin. “MasterSpec will enable specifiers to quickly build specifications using Sloan products, saving them time versus having to research manufactures’ websites for the information.”
The MasterSpec platform is used by 85 percent of the top architectural and engineering firms in the country. This partnership with ARCOM, coupled with the fact that Sloan recently launched a new website ( www.sloan.com) and has recently introduced several new AIA, LEED, IDCEC and ASPE Continuing Education courses, shows Sloan’s commitment to working collaboratively with architectural, engineering and design firms.
“We’re committed to providing the architect and product specifiers as much information as they need about our products,” added Amin. “Even more importantly, by collaborating with ARCOM and the AIA, we are strengthening our position as the go-to resource on designing and specifying smart, sustainable products for the commercial washroom.”
ARCOM, the specification experts, exclusively publishes MasterSpec for The American Institute of Architects (AIA) for use by design professionals involved in building projects. ARCOM owns and publishes SpecText® for use by engineers for infrastructure projects, including water and wastewater utilities and equipment. ARCOM also provides extensive product and manufacturer information through cloud-based specification resources, custom manufacturer specifications, and the SpecBuilder Expert platform. ARCOM's innovative specification productivity software tools dramatically simplify specification creation, research, editing, and formatting.
