e-SPECS for Revit®

Integrate Autodesk® Revit® with Construction Specifications



Link, sync and integrate Revit® with your construction specifications using e-SPECS: automating the creation of your project manuals.

e-SPECS is the only integrated solution supporting the industry-standard Revit® parameters.

e-SPECS for Revit® features include:

  • Wide range of Master Specification Support
  • “Checklist” technology quickly filters large sections to only include project specific information
  • Generate project specific Keynotes to ensure accuracy
  • Prerequisites are identified helping less experienced specifiers
  • “Double-click” features to include/exclude paragraphs and bracket options
  • Reports on submittals, product and material selections
  • Customize Style Guides, Headers/Footers and Table of Contents
  • Collaboration with the Free e-SPECS Desktop application
  • View redlines/markups side-by-side for easy reviewing and updates
  • Copy/Paste images, tables, text, and more.
  • Seamless integration & synchronization of BIM models with specifications
  • View specifications directly in Revit®
  • View the entire Division Tree of specifications, project notes & project files in the e-SPECS for Revit® Browser
  • Run the e-SPECS Validation Report to ensure accuracy between the model and your specs
  • See Drawing Reconciliation Reports to get a complete overview of all Revit® elements that resulted in project specification sections
  • Review the history of your specification sections to see when and why it was included in the project

These features and more facilitate a design process ensuring the highest quality product is produced without the error prone and mundane manual efforts previously required without e-SPECS. With e-SPECS for Revit®, ensure that your drawings and specifications remain in sync.

Specification Support

More and more, the majority of firms are using master guide specifications from multiple sources. With e-SPECS, centralize and manage all master specification support and content in one software solution.

Supported Specifications Include:


Project Collaboration

With e-SPECS for Revit®, all team members can collaborate on your specification documents from any place in the world.  Team members can access the project directly in Revit® and using the Free e-SPECS Desktop tool.

  • Inside Revit®: select a family and view the specs linked to that family
  • With e-SPECS Desktop: markup and redline the specs, collaborating with your specifier who can add or edit the markups in the project manual
  • e-SPECS version control keeps track of all user edits, making it simple to incorporate comments and changes from multiple sources

You’ll save time and money while ensuring all team comments and considerations are included in the final manual.


I have been using e-SPECS for specification production for 11 years. The quality control and consistency provided by integrating specification production into the digital design workflow is a natural early step for firms beginning to implement BIM. e-SPECS for Revit® allows us to leverage the power of BIM by improving the project delivery process and the quality of our work product.
– M. Dennis Knight, Founder and CEO, Whole Building Systems

In the past, at other firms, there was always a breakdown in the creation of the specifications at the hand-off from the designer to the spec writer. With e-SPECS, we are not dealing with discrepancies in the spec manual because of its tight integration with our BIM models. We’ve experienced a huge payback in efficiencies and improved product quality.

We have seen an increase in efficiency using e-SPECES. The extensive use of e-SPECS within our offices is a testament to what e-SPECS can do.
– Tim Terman, Principal and Registered Architect, Design Collaborative

We initially chose e-SPECS because of the ability to produce specifications integrated with BIM models and the ability to standardize our corporate master for use by all project teams. After briefly piloting e-SPECS in our San Francisco office, we saw the potential for e-SPECS to help us realize quality and efficiency improvements in the production specifications across the firm. We subsequently moved forward with establishing e-SPECS as our primary authoring platform for specifications in all offices.

Before e-SPECS, it was a monumental task for us to put together project manuals. With e-SPECS we are able to generate a lot of project manual content very quickly. Now we use e-SPECS on every project in the office.
