Canada specifications

Canadian architects, engineers and specifiers can now harness the power of SpecLink with NMS content

SpecLink is the first database solution to provide robust Canadian and U.S. specification content within the same platform.

The days of being restricted to word processing files are finally over for Canadian design professionals.

For the first time, architects, engineers and specification writers now have access to Canadian content that’s fully integrated into SpecLink.

Beyond the software’s intelligent database and intuitive editing tools, Canadian design professionals can now benefit from SpecLink Cloud’s revolutionary BIM integration.

BSD joins forces with Construction Specifications Canada (CSC)

CSC selected BSD as its exclusive partner to publish Canadian National Master Specifications (NMS), the most comprehensive master specification in Canada.

SpecLink’s intelligent database and advanced cloud collaboration platform will help Canadian design professionals work smarter, faster and better than ever before.

“We are excited to work together in bringing CSC members and the Canadian construction industry a trusted source for comprehensive content and innovative software to make their day-to-day jobs easier and more efficient.”

Nick Franjic, executive director of CSC
