Today we are excited to announce our integration with Building Systems Design, Inc. (BSD) to provide BuildSite product search through BSD SpecLink®. BSD SpecLink® is an automated construction specification writing application that is used to produce specifications for over 26,000 projects annually. Soon, BSD SpecLink® will link to detailed information on construction materials in the BuildSite database.
With this integration, BuildSite and BSD facilitate the industry goal of moving toward Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). The linked systems will bring data from construction manufacturers directly to architects, specifiers, engineers, and contractors during both the design and construction phases of the project.
At BuildSite, we believe the integration will provide construction product manufacturers with improved communication to key purchasing decision-makers: specifiers, architects, engineers, and the end user, the contractor. In many cases, contractors act as the “last designer” in a project. So by providing links to product information from the specifications, we allow them greater freedom to make educated purchasing decisions based on project goals.
We look forward to continuing to provide updates on this exciting collaboration. See our press release, BSD SpecLink® Adds BuildSite Product Search, for more information.
