Deltek and AIA announce new solution for architects
Specpoint will provide greater collaboration for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.
WASHINGTON – June 16, 2021 – Deltek, the leading global provider of software and solutions for project-based businesses, together with the American Institute of Architects (AIA), will deliver a new specification solution—Deltek Specpoint—to the AEC industry in September.
The solution is an all-in-one specification and design automation tool that will be the new home of AIA MasterSpec. Specpoint will help architects and engineers reduce risk and improve project outcomes with the combination of its innovative approach to authoring specifications and the industry proven content provided via MasterSpec.
Recognizing the need for architecture and engineering firms to increase project efficiencies, Deltek and AIA have teamed up to deliver comprehensive online building product research and selection content, combined with a streamlined specification design and publishing tool.
Deltek Specpoint, home of AIA MasterSpec, will be a cloud-based software solution that will revolutionize how product manufacturers and architects and engineers collaborate. Users will be empowered to intelligently research and select products, efficiently write specs and produce project manuals to deliver successful projects.
“The strong partnership between AIA and Deltek has elevated the importance of specifications as a strategic asset in the architect’s design process,” said AIA EVP/Chief Executive Officer Robert Ivy, FAIA. “We’re now seeing the partnership take on a more revolutionary approach with the launch of Specpoint. This application offers architects a better pathway to bring their designs into reality.”
“For decades, Deltek has been working closely with architecture, engineering and construction firms to deliver the most comprehensive software solutions. Together with AIA, we are looking to the future and empowering those companies on their digital transformation journey,” said Mike Corkery, President and CEO at Deltek. “We are very excited to continue our partnership with AIA and bring the power of Specpoint to market.”
A’21 will feature a preview of Deltek Specpoint on Thursday, June 17 from 10-10:30 a.m. ET in the Deltek virtual booth. Product updates are also available online.
