"The supporting documents allow me to better understand specific construction materials and methods that I may have limited knowledge of. This allows me to write a tighter specification, minimizing potential construction phase conflicts." (John C. Anderson, Principal and Owner, Anderson Design, Inc.)
Anderson Design, Inc., a one-person landscape architecture firm, has provided site design and landscape design services in Georgia and the Carolinas since 2001. Located in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Anderson Design works on a broad spectrum of projects including higher education, K-12 schools, office buildings, streetscapes, recreation facilities, and church campuses.
John C. Anderson, the principal and owner of Anderson Design, has used MasterSpec since founding his company. He values MasterSpec because it facilitates coordination of specifications with other design disciplines on complex projects. He finds that the editor's notes and supplemental documents allow him to close holes in his document package by helping him answer questions about materials and construction methods.
As a one-man consulting firm, he depends on MasterSpec's construction industry knowledge to help shorten the learning curve when he is working with a particular design program element for the first time. By doing things quicker, he says he can move on to other billable tasks.
