You’ve known us for years as ARCOM. You have come to rely on us for MasterSpec®, the most trusted and comprehensive building specification system in the industry. With the addition of InterSpec, the creator of e-SPECS, we increased our talent, technology, and scale, accelerating the delivery of our mission. Leveraging the best of ARCOM and InterSpec, we have come together to create Avitru.

Avitru enables the exchange of expert knowledge and ideas, allowing the AECO community to explore and realize their creative vision. We are fortunate to have some of the most highly regarded experts in the industry on our team, available to you.

We are committed to constructing a world where better building inspires better lives. We honor that commitment to the industry by harnessing the collective wisdom of the AECO community to design, build, and operate a better built environment.

The Avitru name is inspired by the Vitruvian principles of architecture, where durability, utility, and beauty are balanced to create architecture of enduring value for humanity. With these principles in mind, the team members of Avitru are committed to providing support from project conception to construction and delivering a trusted platform in which the AECO community can design and build with the advantage of collaboration and collective wisdom. Avitru’s mission is to enable intelligent decisions that lead to constructing a world where better building inspires better lives.
