construction specification writing



Do Architects really understand your product?


We help product manufacturers convert specifications into sales.

Step 1 – Specification writing services

Are your building products easy for architects to specify?


It’s common for product manufacturers to offer CSI 3 part specifications as a sales tool, but many of them are difficult to edit, hard to follow, and not in a usable format for Architects.


We write CSI 3 part SimpleSpecs™ to help building products manufacturers reach more Architects and make it simple to increase specification rates.

Step 2 – Publish your SimpleSpecs™

We publish your custom specifications in SimpleSpecs ™ masters for architects to download or access edit them on the ZeroDocs specification cloud platform.

Step 3 – Reach our network 

Don’t hide your CSI 3 part specifications on the company website and wait for visitors to download them.


This limits the return on investment, and in reality, slowly converts Architects into users of your products.


Using our promotional outreach services, you can actively promote your SimpleSpecs™ to our network of Architects and Specifiers using a ZeroDocs representative.

Step 4 – Sustainable product documentation 

Sustainability is a big buzzword these days.  While many manufacturers heed the requests of Architectural firms to provide sustainability documentation, it’s expensive and hard to calculate a return on investment for most building products.


At ZeroDocs, we believe in establishing a sustainability plan and a clear execution path towards a return on investment.  We assist manufacturers in the development of manufacture inventory lists, health product declarations, life cycled assessments, environmental product declarations, Redlist free and recycled content declarations.


Step 5 – Consulting 

New manufacturers and well-established brands often run into architectural sales process challenges.  It’s often thought that “spec rate” is a healthy benchmark for calculating the strength of a specification program.


At ZeroDocs, we find that the year-over-year sales increase is a more accurate measurement of specification growth.  Specifications = sales opportunities.  The more specifications you create, the more opportunities your brand has to increase sales.  Spec rates don’t measure how those sales will be accomplished or how to funnel them into a sale.


Our team is a mix of experienced specifiers and product representatives with the know-how to get products specified.  We help you identify resources and workflows to improve the specification process and convert them into a sale.  Don’t waste time, schedule a call now!

You’re in Good Company!

“I have been working with ZeroDocs now for a couple of years. They are always so fast, professional, and persistent! What impresses me most is their level of follow-up. When they don’t have what they need for an accurate CSI 3-Part Specification to their requirements, they’ll issue a preliminary spec and follow up regularly to complete their work. They do a great job and make a strong partner for my consulting firm.”

“We use ZeroDocs to locate specific building product manufacturers’ Specs because we know the Specs follow the CSI 3-Part format. The proper format (CSI) allows us to locate what we need immediately. I recommend ZeroDocs to those looking for information from specific manufacturers’ products.”
