May 10, 2012 – InterSpec Inc., the industry leading provider of BIM integrated construction specification software and services, and Bradley Corporation, the industry's leading manufacturer of commercial plumbing fixtures and washroom accessories, announced the membership of Bradley into the e-SPECS Building Product Manufacturer (BPM) Program. Bradley is a market leader in implementing Building Information Modeling (BIM). The e-SPECS BPM Program enables Bradley to deliver the highest level of automation between their BIM models and coordinated product specifications with access of their product data directly in the BIM models during design, construction and facility management phases.
Bradley boasts the greatest depth and breadth of commercial plumbing products in the world. Architects and specifiers look to Bradley for the most innovative products in categories such as Commercial Plumbing Fixtures, Washroom Accessories, Washfountains, Multi-Station Lavatory Systems, Emergency Eyewash Fixtures and Drench Showers, Patient Care Lavatory Units, Commercial Faucets, Commercial / Locker Room Showers, Solid Plastic Locker Systems and Washroom Partitions.
“e-SPECS enables us to deliver more design products to our customers without requiring additional time and money to be spent coordinating the models and specs,” comments Michael Vickery, National Sales Manager at Bradley Corporation. “After polling our customers, e-SPECS was the platform being used with BIM models. We expect to grow our market share and revenues based on the e-SPECS BPM Program membership.”
“The e-SPECS BPM Program is perfect for companies like Bradley who are investing in delivering solutions making it easier for customers to specify their products,” added Michael Brennan, President of InterSpec. “BIM is not just about 3D objects, but more importantly it's about intelligent design data that can be used to coordinate construction documents ensuring that the drawings and specifications are in sync. Our BPM Program members have their product models and specs integrated into a design flow helping customers to reduce time and money spent in researching, tedious reformatting and editing, and drawing coordination of their products and content.”
InterSpec’s patented e-SPECS software solutions automate the preparation of construction specifications and selection of products and materials, used by thousands of architects, engineers and construction professionals. e-SPECS BIM solutions integrate a design’s construction model with construction specifications keeping them in sync while reducing the overall cost of development. As a manufacturer’s product is used in a BIM model, the corresponding detailed specification criteria will automatically be included in the e-SPECS project manual with coordinated detailed keynotes increasing the chances that the product will be bid and used effectively in the project.
e-SPECS also facilitate the development of specification manuals without the CAD/BIM integration. e-SPECS users are more likely to include BPM product specs distributed within the e-SPECS database versus having to spend the time to search the internet, research, download, reformat and coordinate specifications with the rest of their project manual. With the inclusion of BPM’s content, architects and engineers will be able to supplement their project manuals with specific proprietary information directly from within their e-SPECS programs.
Be sure to stop by Bradley’s booth (#1229) at the AIA 2012 National Convention in Washington DC, May 17 – 19, 2012 to see the e-SPECS integration and watch for the official e-SPECS BPM Library launch by June, 2012.
