InterSpec began development of its e-SPECS specification automation
technology in 1998. e-SPECS is the first product ever to successfully
link CAD drawings to the master guide specifications, a truly unique
automation and quality control innovation for construction specifications.
InterSpec has been using e-SPECS to deliver remote specwriting services
since 2000 and is now the leading provider of Internet-based construction
specification management services to architects, engineers, building
owners, and product manufacturers across the country.
e-SPECS® automates the project specifications by extracting the product and material requirements directly from the project drawings, eliminating many hours of tedious preparation time. For every unique item on the drawings, e-SPECS links to your favorite master guide specification, presenting only the language required to specify the product or material identified.
e-SPECS Designer enables firms to customize the AIA MASTERSPEC® to suit their design firm preferences as well as integrate custom Office Master sections. Firms reusing specs from old projects or trying to maintain their own set of office masters with the continuously updated industry codes, products and manufacturers need a tool to centralize this information for everyone in the firm to use.
e-SPECS Desktop streamlines project development and collaboration for all project team members from wherever they may be. e-SPECS Desktop includes redlining and markup of spec section text in read-only mode, adding and responding to project and notes, and access to the Internet for product research and material specification.
