It's time for a change

Based on research by the AIA, entitled The Architect's Journey to Specification

Architects want an easier way to find expert help

87% of architects want help from manufacturers at every project stage, but 2 out of 3 give up because it's too difficult to find the right person in the right company.


They want trustworthy guidance to make informed decisions

Less than half of the architects surveyed are satisfied with the support they receive. They want timely answers from product category experts, not a sales pitch or sales pressure.


The key to better projects is early collaboration

Project teams who leverage the experience and wisdom of product category experts at the earliest stages of design, will achieve superior outcomes with less effort.


Partnering for change

We forged a national partnership with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) to better understand the needs of their 94,000+ members in an effort to improve access to building product manufacturers and product expertise at the earliest stages of design.

We also partnered nationally with the American Institute of Architecture Students, (AIAS), which is made up of thousands of design students from colleges and universities across the U.S.

Additional alliances are forming across the AEC community.  Stay tuned...











It's about nurturing authentic relationships

Manufacturers have the product knowledge that design professionals need. But that expertise is often locked up behind sales and marketing efforts that simply get in the way. With tect, we help design professionals connect with you early in the project cycle at the exact time product decisions are being made.

Access projects at the earliest stages of design

Tired of chasing opportunities only to arrive late to the decision table? With the tectApp®, we remove friction and open the lines of communication, allowing earlier engagement at the moment important product decisions are being made.


Build long-term, trusted relationships

Serving design professionals is quite different than selling to contractors. The tectAcademy is like a Master Class on serving design professionals, and gives your team the tools and insight to become a trusted product partner for years to come.


Stand out in the locations you serve

Design professionals don't know where your products are available. With tectGeo™, you can define your territories by product category and sales rep, making it easier for decision makers to connect with your sales team based on proximity to their project location.


This is not another product directory... It's a platform where people find people.

Design Professionals

Access the experts behind the products

Our communication platform empowers design professionals and specifiers to connect with building product experts from location-specific manufacturers.

Search Building Product Experts

Searching manufacturers websites takes a lot of time. With tect, you have a central place to quickly find the experts and specific answers you need.


Filter by Project Location

It's hard to know which manufacturers to consider. With tect, you can filter results by specific project location to see the companies most relevant to your project. 


Connect by Phone or Email

It's difficult for manufacturers to know when you need their help. With tect, you initiate the conversation by Phone or Email, at the moment you need help from an expert.


By architects, for architects (& others)


Tect was developed with input from more than a thousand of our fellow architects. The platform will save you time and empower your design intent to be realized.

Start building your network of product experts

Tect is committed to the long-term growth and health of the building industry. We recognize that today's students are tomorrow's leaders. Connecting with manufacturers and product experts  early is the key to jumpstarting a great career. 

We recently collaborated with architecture students from three local universities at this year's AIA Conference on Architecture in Chicago, and will continue to bring opportunities for early engagement to students across the U.S.
