Empowering the building industry to write healthier specifications and make better material selections—because these decisions matter.

Architects, interior designers, and developers are making material selections every day without knowing the impact on human health and the environment. We have a duty to inform ourselves and to be more intentional with our specifications.

Spec Matters makes it easy to stay informed

Our team collects reports, articles, white papers, and scientific data.  We consolidate, condense, and relate this important information to our peers in the industry.  We focus on:

  • healthy product features
  • specification suggestions
  • latest toxicology and green chemistry findings
  • latest industry tools
