Conspectus, Inc. Deploys Evolving Specifications hosted on ConspectusCloud

Tuckahoe, New Jersey - May 1, 2019 -

Conspectus, Inc., a consulting firm providing specifications and other services to the
architectural design and construction industry, has developed Evolving Specifications, a new
approach for delivering specifications for the construction industry. The Evolving Specifications
approach uses a custom, and proprietary web-based tool, ConspectusCloud, for collaborative
participation by all project stakeholders—a first in the industry.  Conspectus is responding to the
industry's demand to eliminate information gaps arising from uncoordinated data across multiple
sources presented in multiple formats and out of sequence design decisions.

Evolving Specifications can record the owner's project requirements and keep it at the forefront
throughout the project. This system also effectively integrates all specifications data in a
single, cohesive information platform to ensure the utmost coordination among all the data and
parties. In addition, ConspectusCloud allows the complete project team, including the designer,
owner, contractor, subcontractors, and material suppliers, to review and proactively participate in
the specifications process in real time by posing and answering questions about particular
specification decisions. Comments are captured as threaded discussions for all to see. This feature
allows questions to be asked and resolved before becoming RFIs and Change Orders. Participants can
see the development status of each specification document. Each issue required by the project
contract is saved and retained for record. Comparisons between of any two issues or a current
document can be effectively analyzed and discussed, while providing a discussion trail to
understand what changes occurred and why decisions were made, recording who did what and when. The
complete record is captured in the audit trail for each document.

This new approach has been used successfully on 6 projects, including Delano Indian Wells,
California; San Jose Sharks Arena Expansion, California; Glendale Hotel Louis, California and
others are currently in development. Conspectus clients including WATG, Stantec, Perkins+Will,
FXCollaborative, and SOSH Architects, are requesting the new Conspectus approach and
ConspectusCloud as the specification delivery method for their projects. Conspectus is proud to
have contributed experience from this new approach to the National Research Council of Canada by
incorporating many of the concepts into the Canadian National Master Specifications.
