Deltek announced that it has acquired Avitru. Together, Deltek and Avitru will provide unmatched solutions and services to architects, engineers, contractors, owners and building product manufacturers. This acquisition expands Deltek’s offerings for the AECO industry by bringing in more resources, capabilities and expertise.


Avitru, originally known as ARCOM, is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. Avitru designs the most trusted and comprehensive building specification systems in the industry including MasterSpec – a product of The American Institute of Architects, SpecText, SpecBuilder Cloud and e-SPECS.


“Avitru’s mission has been to empower architects, engineers, contractors and owners to make better, faster decisions,” said Jim Contardi, CEO at Avitru. “Now, with Deltek, the incredibly powerful combination of our solutions will give architects even more tools to design, build and operate in a better built environment. Avitru couldn’t have found a better home!”


In addition to its unique solutions, Avitru has a strategic partnership with AIA – a 93,000-member organization committed to representing, advocating, and advancing the profession of architecture in the United States. AIA created MasterSpec 50 years ago in order to support the development of accurate specification documents for construction projects. Currently, MasterSpec is the most comprehensive and trusted collection of master guide specifications in the architecture and design profession with more than 900 created. As the exclusive distributor of MasterSpec, Deltek will continue Avitru’s partnership with AIA to provide the most current specification content for the AECO industry and provide easy access to building product manufacturer information.


“This partnership will provide AIA members with a valuable benefit,” said AIA Executive Vice President and CEO Robert Ivy, FAIA. “By working together, we can deliver exceptional software solutions that position architects with the best possible tools available for specifying building products and materials.”


“For decades, Deltek has been working closely with thousands of architecture, engineering and construction firms to deliver the most comprehensive software solutions. Acquiring Avitru is part of our ongoing commitment to invest in innovation and offer deeper solutions for our customers. Together with Avitru, we will deliver even more capabilities to help AECO firms and building product manufacturers serve their clients more efficiently and effectively,” said Mike Corkery, President and CEO at Deltek. “We also are thrilled to partner with AIA and offer our customers more resources and more expertise. The entire Deltek team looks forward to working with our new partners and new colleagues at Avitru.”
