Introducing Spec Narratives™

The outline specification is one of the most critical documents in any project. It establishes the project's fundamental expectations and can serve as a basis for evaluating subsequent decisions. Unfortunately, it is frequently overlooked or rushed. Our forward-thinking, innovative approach to specifications, has earned us a reputation as a company that is keen to share its tools with the broader industry to inspire progress and transform the sector. Our most recent innovation is our complimentary outline specifications tool, an easy-to-use app that allows architects and designers to quickly create outline specifications with just a few simple clicks.
