About RIB (formerly BSD)

Who we are

RIB was built by innovative design professionals who are committed to moving the industry forward.

We are experienced architects, engineers, specification writers and software and data experts who are passionate about improving the specification process. Our software is created by the same kind of professionals that use it every day.

We know all about the problems and challenges you face daily because we’ve been there. We’re here to solve your problems—and make your job easier.

The caliber of our people and depth of our experience are unmatched in specification content and software. We’re proud to have deep ties and longstanding relationships within the AECO community. RIB is big enough to matter, but small enough to care. Above all, we are your partner.

What we do

We pride ourselves on delivering the industry’s best content through the most advanced software on the market. Built upon our unrivalled database, our tools simplify the specification process and dramatically improve productivity.

At RIB, we embrace game-changing technology.

Our innovative, problem-solving software helps you get more done, faster. We pioneered the use of cloud technology and were the first company to offer seamless BIM integration.

Thousands of companies in the AECO sector rely on our software to improve their workflow throughout all phases of construction. SpecLink’s innovative tools allow you to synchronize your specs and BIM models, collaborate more efficiently with cloud technology, and quickly produce cost estimates.

Who we serve

Our software is designed for architects, engineers, specifiers, owners, and building product manufacturers. More than 23,000 users* trust SpecLink to enhance every stage of the construction process, from design to facility management.

No matter where you fit in on the project team, SpecLink can help you streamline workflow, improve collaboration and dramatically increase your productivity.

Our vast industry reach also benefits building product manufacturers, who are specified by name more than one million times a year. SpecLive allows BPMs to reach specifiers at their point of decision.
