Specworx® – Autodesk® Revit®Integrated Specification Software

The engineering, construction, and infrastructure (ECI) industry is constantly evolving and has become more streamlined with the use of technology, such as Building Information Modelling (BIM).

BIM is at the heart of the digital asset lifecycle transformation. It should not simply be regarded as a 3D modelling tool but as part of a new set of business processes that make use of asset data and take advantage of the latest technology innovations.

BIM is a way to manage information across all stages of an asset’s life, integrating processes, information, and technologies. It is about changing the way we do business and enabling continuous improvement. Companies need to move from a document-driven process to an integrated data-driven approach to manage the entire asset lifecycle.

This is why Ironmongery Warehouse created Specworx®, a world-first real-time ironmongery specification program that allows BIM asset data to be integrated into all stages of the asset lifecycle process.

Specworx® is a turnkey solution used by our Architectural Specifiers to generate professional ironmongery specifications that are viewed and bidirectionally linked to Autodesk® Revit® using the free Specworx® viewer, for Developers, Architects, or Contractors.

The ironmongery requirements are seamlessly integrated with your Autodesk® Revit® model via the free Specworx Viewer, enhancing efficiency and reducing working hours across the project planning, design, and construction phases.

A simple Windows application on your PC, allows us to directly communicate with you for any revisions. With a click of a button, you can easily view the specified ironmongery on the relevant door. Our recipes of products are linked to each instance of all doors found in the model, and not by door type, saving you time in reviewing the specified ironmongery.

We pride ourselves on being innovative and continuously strive to improve our technology, thus keeping us ahead of the game in assisting you to complete a successful project.

No – Ironmongery Warehouse Africa specifiers can create Ironmongery Specifications from any application that can produce a PDF file of floor plans.

Specworx® integrates with Autodesk® Revit® 2017 and newer.

No –  The free Specworx® viewer is a separate Windows application that is not integrated into the Autodesk® Revit® workspace.

Yes – Ironmongery Warehouse Africa has developed an in-house door take-off tool that produces Ironmongery Specification projects directly from a local copy of an Autodesk® Revit® model.

The architect can then view, check, and markup the project using the free Specworx® Viewer.

Yes – Installation files, a tutorial, and a short video of how the viewer integrates with Autodesk® Revit® are available to assist with installation.

No – Ironmongery Warehouse Africa prefers that recipes are changed from one source.

Architects can however filter and create separate reports from the original documentation, such as, if you need to split your Ironmongery report by floor:

1) Filter by floor 2) Save and print the new filtered report.

No – When an Autodesk® Revit® model is changed, and it affects the door index, the model must be shared with Ironmongery Warehouse Africa again so that a new takeoff and revision of the specification can be produced.

Yes – Ironmongery Warehouse Africa project files include all relevant reports, as well as 2D floor plans where each door is highlighted to show its ironmongery specification.

  • Door numbers must be unique.
  • Specworx® uses Mark as the door number and Type Mark for the Door Type. If other door parameters are used for door number and door type, the specifier should be informed.
  • All doors must be a Autodesk® Revit® door.
  • Door families should have enough information for the specifier to identify the function of the door.
  • Door Schedules/Door detail drawings should be complete and included.
  • If the project is phased, the specifier should be informed as to how deleted, existing, and demolished doors should be handled.
  • If there are design options in the model, the specifier should be informed about which doors to exclude/include.
  • Where possible, sheets with title blocks should be included in the model for reference.

Autodesk® Revit® models are used to create Specworx® projects and are then deleted. Every new revision of Specworx® schedules is based on a snapshot copy of the architect’s live project.
