Portland, Maine – October 27, 2008 –
InterSpec Inc., the industry leading provider of BIM integrated construction specification software and services, today announced DLR Group has selected its patented e-SPECS solutions as the firm’s Building Information Modeling (BIM) Specification Solution. DLR Group is an integrated design firm providing architecture, engineering, planning, and interior design for corporate, higher education, justice, K-12 education and sports clients. Each of the firm’s 15 offices across the country has embraced BIM and uses it to enhance the design services available to clients.
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.
“Firms such as DLR Group have a wealth of data to manage across the enterprise to ensure the highest quality products are produced efficiently,” said Gilles Letourneau, CTO of InterSpec. “Using e-SPECS enables these firms to centralize and maintain intellectual property for use across the firm. Whether that data is contractual language, owner requirements, product preferences or lessons learned, e-SPECS is leading the way in providing the efficiency and intelligence to integrate firm preferences with the leading design applications. We’re proud to provide the e-SPECS integration and coordination with Autodesk Revit based BIM applications or standalone specification solutions to leading firms such as DLR Group.”
Robert Watkins, CTO of DLR Group, explains “Part of our Integrated Design Practice at DLR Group is to use technology and applications across the enterprise to provide a seamless and efficient design process. Our Autodesk Revit BIM design documents can now be synchronized with our construction specifications using e-SPECS. We’ve been able to prove on a pilot project the e-SPECS and Revit integration helps achieve the highest level of product quality and consistency possible. DLR Group has a variety of designs, owners, and regional preferences to manage. Centralizing these preferences for use across the enterprise will help to reduce our maintenance effort while improving the ease of accessing the information. e-SPECS allows us to create smart checklists and mappings to include the information needed both with Revit BIM integration and as a standalone spec system.”
