e-SPECS Selected by NBBJ as Enterprise Specification Solution

NBBJ evaluated e-SPECS at two main offices on actual in-house projects.  The Autodesk Revit BIM coordinated specifications and view/mark-up access to those specifications within Revit demonstrated coordination that could help reduce RFIs and Addendums in design documents.  NBBJ will be managing their firm’s specification masters based on MasterSpec along with VA masters using e-SPECS Designer, an office master management application.  All offices will access firm design preferences centrally managed on industry standard Microsoft SQL servers.  Jeff Slane, a Principal at NBBJ, explains “As an industry leading firm, NBBJ is implementing seamless and efficient technology and applications across the enterprise.  Synchronized BIM models and specifications along with central management of an NBBJ firm master confirmed our choice to implement e-SPECS."  Read the Complete News Release

VOA Selects InterSpec for Writing SpecsIntact Project Manuals

"VOA chose InterSpec as the specifiers for our military projects using the United Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) and SpecsIntact software because they have shown a mastery of the database, an ability to shape the database to fit the project and always meet deliverable schedules” said Jim Sasek, Senior Vice President. “Using InterSpec’s professional spec writing team enables us to meet our client’s needs in the highly competitive design build environment by providing cost effective, well prepared project manuals freeing up our project managers to focus on other aspects of the project”.   Read the Complete News Release

e-SPECS Integration Available for
VA Master Specifications

e-SPECS facilitates writing and coordinating construction documents while saving firms time and money.  MasterSpec integration is available, custom office masters may be integrated and now the VA Master Specifications are available to firms writing projects for the US Dept of Veterans Affairs.  The e-SPECS integration offers simplified checklist, editing and project manual production functionality reducing time and costs spent developing construction documents.
Joseph Garrity, Senior Project Architect, Principal at Array Healthcare Facility Solutions, said "the e-SPECS integration of the VA Master Specifications has been fantastic for us. The e-SPECS Checklist and Editor is much easier to use than Word document editing saving us time and money. We're now integrating the VA Master with our Revit BIM models saving time and money, creating better coordinated drawings and specifications while keeping our project specs and BIM models in sync with each other. I'd strongly recommend VA designers take advantage of the e-SPECS integration."  Read the Complete News Release

MasterSpec ®

Do I have to keynote everything in my model to get accurate specs?  Am I supposed to model everything including brick ties just so they automatically get inserted into my specs?  Do I have to use a new proprietary list of objects or tags to synchronize my construction documents?  Do I have to know Revit just to be able to insert sections into my e-SPECS for Revit project manual?
Of course not!  You wouldn't be making these statements if you understood how e-SPECS links Autodesk Revit BIM models to MasterSpec or how it manages all your sections (inserted from BIM, inserted by the checklist, imported from DOC/RTF files, or copy/pasted from the web) as one project manual.  Learn how e-SPECS helps firms to manage their design expertise and intellectual property.  Make an investment in your firm by stepping up to coordinated construction documents with e-SPECS.  It's easier than you think.

Client Testimonial

e-SPECS is enabling firms to reduce costs while improving product quality.

“Among several useful aspects (client bindings, speed in publishing, BIM/Revit integration),
e-SPECS is assisting in communicating our office’s master spec information to all levels of specifying expertise and promoting consistency in editing. We like that.”
