InterSpec Inc., the industry leading provider of construction specification software and specification writing services, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Michigan-based JPRA Architects as lead specification consultants for their varying portfolio of large-scale retail and hospitality projects.

With a wide breadth of knowledge and over 35 years of experience, JPRA Architects commands these design sectors with their array of planning, architecture, interior design, lease administration and environmental graphic services.

Committed to sustainability in design, JPRA Architects’ portfolio is marked by their development of destination places, including some of the country’s most renowned regional shopping centers and mixed-use complexes.

“Over the course of seven projects together, InterSpec’s team has realized significant savings for us in addition to a seamless collaboration process. We have confidence in InterSpec’s dedication to meeting each of our client’s unique needs.”

Since its founding in 1998, InterSpec’s team of specifiers have completed hundreds of project manuals for both residential and commercial projects of all shapes and sizes in nearly every state in the country and internationally.

By employing its industry leading e-SPECS software solutions, its specifiers can more readily apply client requirements and preferences in the specification content.
