InterSpec announced a new addition to its e-SPECS software solutions: e-SPECS for Navisworks, which enables access to construction project materials data, project specifications and accompanying project related files directly within the Autodesk Navisworks application.
Architectural and engineering firms doing drawing coordination or merging engineering models can better collaborate with direct access to specified information. Contractors can save time and money during their estimating, bidding and construction phases with electronic access to the coordinated specifications and the storage and quick retrieval of project related files. Being able to review and comment on submittal items online streamlines the procurement of materials and quickens the processing of the required submittals. Owners are able to review and verify their product and system preferences from design phase, through bidding and construction sequences, and into facility management.
e-SPECS for Navisworks enables direct access to project construction information, coordinated specifications and related project files enabling advanced collaboration, dynamic access to detailed material requirements for bidding and estimating, faster review and return times, and easy document markup.
The e-SPECS Navisworks Plug-In Console is scheduled for official release in March 2012. Current e-SPECS for Revit customers may add on the e-SPECS Navisworks Plug-In Console and take advantage of the current BIM integration directly within Navisworks.
