About RIB

We are experienced architects, engineers, specification writers and software and data experts who are passionate about improving the specification process. Our software is created by the same kind of professionals that use it every day.

We know all about the problems and challenges you face daily because we’ve been there. We’re here to solve your problems—and make your job easier.

The caliber of our people and depth of our experience are unmatched in specification content and software. We’re proud to have deep ties and longstanding relationships within the AECO community. RIB is big enough to matter, but small enough to care. Above all, we are your partner.
