GRAPHISOFT and InterSpec, Inc. Announce ArchiCAD e-Specs Integration
BOSTON, May 14, 2012 – GRAPHISOFT® announced today the integration between e-SPECS and ArchiCAD. Both GRAPHISOFT and InterSpec, Inc have been committed to offering the best software solutions in their respective fields; linking the technologies will enhance the work of architects and facilitate construction management projects.
The e-SPECS Specification Management product suite serves to automate the preparation of construction specifications and selection of products and materials that are incorporated into construction projects. With e-SPECS for ArchiCAD, users have truly integrated and coordinated construction documents.
“We're always on the lookout to add to our best-in-class interoperability and are very pleased to collaborate with e-SPECS,” said Steve Benford, GRAPHISOFT North America, Managing Director. “The integration with e-SPECS enhances the user experience, streamlines the workflow, and helps optimize documentation. Everyone wins - users, clients, we as solution providers, as well as the building industry as a whole.”
Architects, engineers and construction professionals employ InterSpec’s e-SPECS products on thousands of projects annually to maintain synchronization between construction models, drawings and project specifications. ArchiCAD integration with e-SPECS provides overall cost management during the process of developing project construction documents.
“We welcome ArchiCAD to the family of BIM applications we support,” said Michael Brennan, President of InterSpec. “We’re happy to be able to deliver something ArchiCAD customers have been seeking – a way to take advantage of our specification automation and coordination systems. Our e-SPECS Application Program Interface (API), provides automation, coordination, and access to the specifications and other project data.”

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 Autodesk and Graphisoft BIM applications and supports all specification master libraries of MasterSpec®, US Dept of Veterans Affairs, Canadian Master Specifications (CMS), National Master Specifications (NMS), as well as the ability to integrate 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.
