A SUBSCRIBER HIGHLIGHT: SOLUTIONS ARCHITECTURE

08 Dec 2021

Solutions Architecture is a small but knowledgeable team with over 20 years of experience in the industry. This highly skilled design practice uses the latest architecture operations, developments, and trends to complete new homes and commercial buildings for their growing client list. Their designs range from 60m2 to over 1500m2 from $100,000 to over $6 million.

One of this practices key strengths is their commitment to attending professional development seminars and gaining additional knowledge from Designers Institute of New Zealand (DINZ). By attending regular events, they gain valuable information for their designs. However, one area that they cannot always keep up to date with at these events is the on-going changes made to New Zealand Codes and Standards for their specification documentation.

That is why they reached out to Masterspec. By subscribing to Masterspec’s Basic and Minor library, not only can they now stay on top of key industry updates and changes, but they can also save valuable time when building their project specifications. “We love that the sections are set up and you have the ability to use a specific product, not just a generic work section. This makes life easier,” says Solutions Architecture. With pre-made branded work sections, New Zealand manufacturers can create specific work sections around product systems for Masterspec subscribers to use.

Learning when codes and standards are updated is not the only piece of information Solution Architecture keeps on track with though. All Masterspec subscribers are notified when changes happen to branded work sections. That means that if products are added or updated, they can easily make changes within their specification in just a few clicks. Solutions Architecture mentions “the Q&A feature is very handy. You are always able to go back and make modifications as you learn more information about your project.” By using the online platform and pre-editing functions, the team can seamlessly collaborate and make changes whenever they need to.

The result of Solutions Architecture using Masterspec is that they can input their expert knowledge into each project and save time while doing so. “Masterspec as a whole is a time saver! We know that Masterspec specifications are up-to-date and product specific, so if we ever had a dispute, we could rely on our spec to help us out.” Join this practice and many others in managing their risk in an efficient, smart way!
