Architectural Nexus Selects VisiSpecs for Design Specification Solution

Portland, Maine (August 28, 2018) – Architectural Nexus, a full-service architectural firm, has selected VisiSpecs, The Visual Specification System, as its specification solution for its multiple studios and regional offices.

Architectural Nexus is a multi-disciplinary, people-driven design firm practicing throughout the western United States. By focusing on people rather than buildings, Arch Nexus designs projects and creates places that not only work well, but also help people be healthy, happy, and productive. Through purposeful design, people are inspired to achieve greatness and be more active stewards of the built and natural environments.

Architectural Nexus trialed VisiSpecs on a fast-track project to determine how easy it was to use and the time savings was significant over their current spec applications. The first project had such great success they immediately decided to follow up on a second project. Aaron Arbuckle, Principal at Architectural Nexus who oversees standards, confirmed the choice to rollout VisiSpecs stating, “After editing just two sections I found VisiSpecs was not only very easy to learn and use but also saved us hours of time in the editing and publishing process.”

Seamus McGrady, COO of Chalkline added, “our focus has always been on delivering easy-to-install, learn-and-use applications that have a fast return on investment. We are happy Architectural Nexus decided to give VisiSpecs a try and look forward to hearing more about their implementation and feedback on improving our applications and processes.”

The VisiSpecs Free 30-Day Trial allows ample time for clients to import their specification documents, learn to use the functionality and process, and even integrated with their BIM models. As VisiWord is a Microsoft Word Add-In, users are on a familiar application and simply learn to use the project management, doc editing, reporting, and publishing features.  VisiSpecs doesn’t require customers to change their BIM model or processes so linking the required specs to the model elements and materials is immediate. Customers can quickly understand the benefits and time-saving features using their documents and models making their decision to deploy an easy one.
