Dodge Data & Analytics’ Sweets Catalog Reaches 100,000 Product Milestone

Posted 08/16/2017

Sweets, Dodge Data & Analytics' interactive building product database, now provides free access to updated metadata on over 100,000 products for AEC professionals researching, comparing, selecting, specifying, and installing commercial products. Building on Sweets' 100-year-old commitment to architecture, engineering and construction professionals, Sweets now offers the most comprehensive building product information resource in the industry, accessible online and via its workflow integration solutions-Sweets apps for Autodesk's Revit® and AutoCAD.

With a registered user base of over 300,000, Sweets has the most up-to-date product metadata representing such major brands as Allegion, Nystrom, Sloan, Armstrong and CertainTeed. Architects, designers, engineers, contractors and owners have free access to extensive product specifications, including CAD details, BIM content, warranties, catalogs, installation guides and more, making it the definitive search and comparison tool for building products. Among the top-tier firms that access Sweets and Sweets app for Revit and AutoCAD every month are professionals from Gensler, Perkins + Will, HOK, Perkins Eastman, Jacobs and more.

The Sweets apps for Revit and AutoCAD allow professionals to search, select and incorporate product information directly into their designs. Sweets app for Revit was awarded trade publication Architosh's Best of Show Award in the BIM software category at the 2016 AIA Conference, and it provides product integration for the 3-D design software's 400,000-strong user base. Sweets for AutoCAD supports 2-D design projects and is available to over 1.5 million AutoCAD users worldwide.

"Sweets has been the construction industry's mainstay building product resource for more than a century," said Mike Petrullo, Chief Executive Officer, Dodge Data & Analytics. "Since the very beginning, we have aspired to create a comprehensive, efficiency-enhancing product database that provides industry-leading value to the design and build community. Surpassing the 100,000-product threshold, and having 96% of Architectural Record's top 300 design firms registered, is proof that Sweets is fulfilling its promise."

To further the exchange of information, ideas and content among architects, general contractors, subcontractors, and building product manufacturers, Sweets has created a LinkedIn page, providing an active forum for the construction industry. 

Sweets is also introducing the Sweets College Scholarship, supporting students on their path toward a professional career in architecture, engineering, design or construction, and helping to offset the increasing cost of tuition. The Scholarship will award $2,500 to a student each academic year. To apply, students are asked to produce a short video, describing their favorite building on campus from a design perspective and, for bonus points, to name building products that stand out in the design.
