InterSpec has completed the development of the e-SPECS integration of the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Master Specifications. The e-SPECS integration offers AEC firms an integrated solution with CAD and BIM applications as well as non-integrated designs using the e-SPECS Checklist and Editing applications. In addition to time and cost savings for clients working on VA projects, firms can realize higher quality design documents through the e-SPECS integrated construction drawings and specifications.
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.”
A Principal, Jeff Slane, at NBBJ stated “e-SPECS gives us a centrally managed solution for the various projects, regions and specifiers throughout the firm. As a large firm, we need to ensure consistent high quality project documentation are delivered on time. The e-SPECS VA Master Integration means that our VA projects can utilize the same process flow as our other projects producing similar high quality consistent results.”
Michael Brennan, CEO of InterSpec, stated “we are glad to be extending our solutions to include the VA Master Integration. e-SPECS customers like NBBJ and Array Healthcare are looking for BIM integrated solutions that help them ensure the highest quality of product delivered. Reducing time spent on document creation, coordination and routine editing and checking will allow more time to add value to the quality of the VA design being delivered.”
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.
The e-SPECS VA Master Integration is available immediately with special incentives through December 2009. For more information, contact Email Contact.
InterSpec provides construction document management solutions and services built on its patented e-SPECS specification management technology. e-SPECS software automates the specification process by extracting the product and material requirements directly from the project’s BIM models and drawings. e-SPECS integrates directly with all Autodesk Revit-based BIM products as well as with Autodesk’s AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture and AutoCAD Systems products and supports all libraries of MasterSpec and custom office masters. For architects and engineers who spend many hours on every project preparing construction specifications, e-SPECS software saves time and money while ensuring that the construction drawings are coordinated with the specifications.
