Specifiers Expect More Digital and Advisory Support from Manufacturers

Architects and engineers working on a project

The American Institute of Architects recently released a new report “The Architect’s Journey to Specifications”. One of their findings was that architects want product websites that are “clear, concise, up-to-date, and easy to navigate.” Architects and engineers are busier than ever, handling multiple projects at a time, meeting a variety of city/state/federal regulations, and have new “green” goals to attain. Filtrine understands this and completely redesigned their website to be more user and mobile friendly. Filtrine also partnered with CADdetails, an online buyer’s guide specifically designed to put products and specifications at architects’ finger tips. Type Filtrine Manufacturing into the search box on the CADdetails home page. Both these resources make it easier for architects and engineers to meet their project deadlines.

Filtrine’s specialty is to design and build drinking water equipment to their customers’ requirements. The redesigned website features Product Family Overview pages. Each product family (such as drinking fountains or bottle filling stations) has its own overview page that encourages visitors to narrow down their search by application or product type. The Drinking Water Applications page has a comprehensive list of applications to help inspire its customers. Each drinking water product has its own profile page, with specifications and model images to assist with selecting options, finishes, and finding the right configuration for their needs. The Project Profiles case histories outline different challenges and solutions that show the breadth of Filtrine offerings and Filtrine's capacity to custom design drinking water equipment.

CADdetails is another resource designed to help specifiers be more effective at their jobs. They are presenting Filtrine drinking water products in their upcoming CADdetails Microsite Announcement, an email being sent to out to over 435,000 specifiers on February 14th, under their "New Microsites" section. Filtrine’s unique Model 108-WD, a non-recessed drinking fountain made of bronze and wood, is the featured image and is part of the Filtrine Fountain Collection. Filtrine drinking water equipment is organized by products, listings, 3D models and projects in an easy to navigate format. In addition to the CADdetails microsite, Filtrine drinking water products are found in two special sections, SpecGREEN (see Filtrine Manufacturing Company) and the Design Gallery (see The Water Cube Installation).

Filtrine has an extensive catalog of options and accessories and can apply others as required. In short, if you don’t see what you need, please ask. For more information or to get some advice on what you need for your project, fill out the contact form or talk to your Filtrine Representative.
