patented e-SPECS software solutions automate the preparation of construction
specifications and selection of products and materials, used by thousands
of architects, engineers and construction professionals to help them
keep their construction models and specifications in sync while reducing
the overall cost of development. With the inclusion of BPM's content,
architects and engineers will be able to supplement their project
manuals with specific proprietary information directly from their
e-SPECS programs. As a manufacturer's Revit family is used in a Revit
model, the corresponding detailed specification criteria will automatically
be included in the e-SPECS project manual with coordinated detailed
keynotes for Revit.
Building Product Manufacturers such as USG are taking
a leadership role in the use of technology to facilitate selection
and integration of their product information. USG's customers can
now coordinate their BIM models and specification content into their
projects further leveraging their investment in BIM and specification
content. Read more

Integrated BIM Specifications
e-SPECS for Revit interfaces with Revit's parametric database, instantly
updating your project specifications to the requirements of the building
model. Insert a wall, door, window, or any other building object into
your Revit model and instantly update your project manual with the
appropriate specifications. Any changes you make to the designs will
automatically be incorporated into the specification manual. And with
the click of the mouse, you can access all the other functionality
that e-SPECS provides to update your sections on-the-fly, post project
notes, review section markups and more.
e-SPECS for Revit automates the process of
including your proprietary specification when your Revit family is
used through the unique e-SPECS Binding technology.
Distribution of Your Revit Families and Specifications
Your customers won't need to search the web, hopefully find your content,
download and hopefully include your specifications in the project
manual. e-SPECS for Revit ensures that your investment in BIM content
automatically includes your specifications. As a BPM's Revit Family
is added to the BIM model, e-SPECS for Revit automatically includes
the BPM proprietary specification into the project manual. At any
time, the user of e-SPECS for Revit can review the "history" of the
specification sections to review the Drawing Reconciliation reports
to get a complete overview of all the BIM Families that resulted in
project specification sections. e-SPECS BPM specifications are shipped

and collaboration on your specification documents from any place in
the world. Team members can access the project directly in Revit based
Applications. Inside Revit, simply select any family and view the
specs linked to that family and even markup and redline the specs
collaborating with your specifier. Your customers save time and money
and ensure that your families and specifications are linked together.

only are your specifications automatically included in the project
manual when your Revit Family in the model, but your customers can
insert your proprietary specification on ANY project using the intelligent
e-SPECS Checklist. The e-SPECS Checklist automatically filters products
and language not applicable to the checklist selections. Using the
e-SPECS Editor, your customer can fine tune your specification as
needed for the project. Your specifications are just a mouse click
away from being included in project manuals.
e-SPECS Start-Up Screen Featured BPM Listings
time e-SPECS is opened, a Featured Building Product Manufacturer will
be highlighted with links to their preferred web page. Get your company
and products in front of specifiers, architects, engineers and designers
while they are selecting products and specifying construction projects.
Those BPMs taking advantage can expect tens of thousands of impressions.
Remember this is not dependent on an Internet Google search result
finding you, but instead the application used by specifiers, designers,
architects and engineers to write construction specification manuals.
In addition, those Featured BPM Listings will be available directly
in Autodesk Revit based applications. Featured Listings are available
to all Building Product Manufacturers whether they are a current e-SPECS
BPM Program Member or not.
e-SPECS Professional Specification Services
already with Revit Families and 3 Part CSI Specifications can simply
