BBA teams up with SpecifiedBy to support use of approved building products


The British Board of Agrement is working with website SpecifiedBy to make it easier for architects and specifiers to select BBA-approved building products

From February, SpecifiedBy users will be able to filter product categories and searches to include only those items certified by the BBA.

They will also have details of new BBA-backed building systems and services delivered direct to their Discover homepage.

SpecifiedBy has around 20,000 registered users and attracts more than 50,000 visitors per month. It features over 50,000 building products from 1,500 companies.

Richard Beale, BBA commercial director, said: “This partnership will allow architects and specifiers to quickly and easily pull up details of construction products certified by the BBA and keep them up-to-date with the latest products to gain our internationally recognised accreditation.

BBA certification is a mark of regulatory compliance, quality, safety and reliability, delivering a one-stop shop solution for architects and specifiers wishing to satisfy each of these elements. All the information and assurances they require are collated into one source of information, which is now easily located via the SpecifiedBy website.”

Darren Lester, an architectural technologist who launched SpecifiedBy in 2014 after becoming frustrated by the amount of time it took to gather product information, added: “At our core is a commitment to ensuring users can find the best construction products for their projects, based on technical performance. The BBA is at the forefront of driving construction product quality and innovation, so it feels like a natural fit.

“By making architects and specifiers more aware of BBA certifications, and the products which have gone through its rigorous testing processes, we hope we will be doing our bit in maintaining and pushing the standards of design and construction within the UK even higher.”
