For architects and specifiers, it’s a constant challenge to find and access the technical product data required to make efficient and informed building product decisions. Every project, they carry out countless Google searches, PDF downloads, information extraction and manual comparisons in order to find the most suitable products for their projects.

The main problem they face is that all the useful technical information tends to be stored in static documents, on manufacturer websites, which leads to huge amounts of time being spent simply on information gathering.

SpecifiedBy provides a live database and search engine for over 40,000 building products and materials available in the UK, allowing architects and specifiers to quickly and easily filter products based their technical attributes and compare similar solutions across structured, consistent  data points, side-by-side.

The SpecififiedBy search and comparison platform is free to access at https://www.specifiedby.com
