InterSpec Inc. Inc. today announced that its patented e-SPECS solutions have been selected as the BIM Specification Solution by HMC Architects, one of the largest planning and design firms headquartered in California, with offices strategically located throughout California and Nevada.
InterSpec’s patented e-SPECS software solutions automate the preparation of construction specifications and selection of products and materials that are incorporated into commercial construction projects. InterSpec’s e-SPECS products are used by thousands of architects, engineers and construction professionals to help them keep their construction drawings and specifications in sync while reducing the overall cost of development.
“e-SPECS solutions allow architects and engineers to save countless hours and dollars while ensuring that their digital construction models and drawings agree with the specifications,” said Michael Brennan, CEO of InterSpec. “Customers like HMC designing a variety of facilities including healthcare, education and government facilities use e-SPECS enabling efficient and coordinated construction document management, design team collaboration and enterprise level data management. We are pleased with the selection of e-SPECS by HMC and look forward to working closely with them on continued development of functionality around their processes.”
"At HMC, we are implementing a BIM strategy firm wide. We selected e-SPECS because it is an integrated application that fits well with our goals" said Mark W. Kiker, Chief Information Officer at HMC Architects. “The integration with Revit will allow our Architects to jump start the specification process.”
Joe Salazar AIA, Director of Technical Services at HMC Architects, added “We anticipate that e-SPECS will improve efficiency and enable collaborative spec writing. It will also expand our material selection process. Having it dovetail with Revit is an added bonus. We will be using e-SPECS on every project, not just Revit projects.”
