About Us


ARCOM has established itself as the industry expert in specifications and has been trusted by design and building professionals for decades. ARCOM is perhaps best known for its flagship product: the American Institute of Architect’s MasterSpec®, the preeminent master guide specifications in the building industry. ARCOM is also the owner and publisher of SpecText®, master guide specifications for infrastructure projects. Alpine Investors recognized ARCOM as a promising investment opportunity because of its leadership in the AEC industry and acquired ARCOM in October of 2016.

ARCOM is dedicated to providing design and construction professionals with the most advanced productivity software and cutting-edge tools at your fingertips. To this end, ARCOM acquired InterSpec in January of 2017. InterSpec was the developer of e-SPECS software, including e-SPECS for Revit, a BIM-to-specs tool. This acquisition helps ARCOM continue to provide products and resources that help control project costs and produce the most accurate building, infrastructure, and construction specifications in the industry.

Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, with additional offices in Alexandria, Virginia, and Portland, Maine, ARCOM offers this unique combination:

  • Full-time support from our staff of over 45 specification experts, editors, software developers, and support professionals
  • Accurate, reliable specification products geared for the way you work
  • Timesaving productivity software and decision-making tools
  • Cloud-based resources, including the most up-to-date product, manufacturer, and sustainable design information
