Great tips from an Architect. Make it easier for your products to be found and specified?

We all know architects and designers are highly visual people. So it comes as no surprise that appearance is a key factor when specifying products or systems for client projects.
In this short video, Matt Franklin, Architect at mbf DESIGN talks to Su Butcher about how he uses to find construction products for a client brief.
Matt makes a number of shortlisting decisions based on the type of application a particular “balustrade” is suitable for. Much of that decision making is based on the images presented by the manufacturer on the website. This allows him to quickly filter and narrow down different products using’s structured navigation and filters. This results in the right product being recommended by the designer to the client influencing the final product selection for this project.
