Let's Spec Sustainable Innovation

As members and active supporters of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Construction Specifiers Institute (CSI), Boyd has gained a clear understanding of which architectural resources will best benefit the community of architects we work with so often. In addition to supplying affordable, reliable commercial aluminum windows and doors, we offer architectural resources such as our CEP architect courses, which support breakthroughs in architectural design, and our time-saving Autodesk® Seek services for quick access to the BIM files and configuration details you need to accurately spec your building projects.

Autodesk® Seek Services for Your Convenience

As a service to the architectural community, Boyd uses Autodesk® Seek to provide product details on many of our trusted commercial window configurations. One quick search on Autodesk® Seek will let you see and download our specification docs, configuration drawings, BIM (building information modeling) files, or models for immediate use in your Autodesk Revit® or AutoCAD® design software.
