What Makes Us Different
We're not afraid of technology, instead we evaluate and embrace it. A pioneer of custom integration solutions for spec/drawing note coordination. Early adopter of database-enhanced specs, and tester of many spec systems. Developer of custom tools where needed. Have worked extensively with SpecsIntact as well as MasterSpec-based systems and also BSD. Our preference is to use our own continually updated, interactive and highly responsive systems to tailor the specs to your particular needs.
Levels of Service
● Specification section editing based on solid design team input for manufacturers, products, and features.
● Specification section editing with extra support for the design team when product choices will be less clearly defined so expedited services and more last-minute revisions are to be expected.
● Supporting and enhancing in-house spec writing capabilities. This can include setting up basic macros for you, and offering human-powered first pass specs for you to finish editing in-house.
