Imagine if all of your components were automatically organised & created for you. Image if the walls, floors, roof windows and materials you used were automatically grouped, correlated, IFC classified and layered for you. Imagine if all of your scenes & styles were created in seconds so you could navigate and control a project instantly? Imagine if all of your shadow scenes could be created according to the project location & solstice, in one click?
If you are using Sketchup pro and you are a designer, builder, sub or all of the above, you could make a better living out of Sketchup when combined with Plusspec, All for less than $20 per week, that’s less than a cup of coffee a day! How much is your time worth?
Did I mention that all of your work is fully quantifiable and you can associate costs to every item, cubic, lineal, each,square or by group and compile feasibility studies, quote requests, even purchase orders.
Amazing.

The aim of PlusSpec is to unite our industry, from concept design, through to construction and hand over. It is what our indusrty needs. Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) and Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) will see us all work in a better industry.

I built PlusSpec because I love Sketchup, Design and Construction and I do not like wasting time, money or resources.
