For Architects, By Architects
Acelab was founded by a team of architects to streamline specification workflows with intelligent visual search tools, so you can make informed product decisions and win back valuable design time.
This is way easier than pursuing a manufacturer’s website. Usually it feels like I’m reinventing the wheel every time.
The direct contact for a rep is wonderful… that’s the biggest thing for me. A lot of times you’re calling a 1-800 number and they have to ask you all these questions to understand your project requirements.
The library dashboard is super helpful… one of the things we try to do as architects is cut back on wasted time, so the quicker we can plug in, the better.
