Building professionals have issues with balancing budgets while still meeting clients’ needs, maximizing design, maintaining quality and trying new products.
Most building professionals like to try new products, but are concerned about the durability, long-term track record and performance.
New, contemporary and cutting-edge design with enviro-friendly features have the most impact on designer’s product selection.
Most often, professionals in the building construction market would prefer to have a face-to-face connection with a manufacturer’s rep for new product information.
Often times, contractors will request the approval for a brand of product that is not in the specification.
Overall, the majority of architects and designers will try to customize their specs to meet project and client objectives.
