The economy might be slow but you'd never know it by looking at the amount of specification happening in TODL.com.
"Most of the designers I talk to today are working harder than ever to keep their businesses going and that includes doing more specification personally," stated Stacey Tiveron, Founder and CEO of TODL. "That general sentiment helps to explain the exponential growth in activity and email requests from TODL members over the last several months."
TODL has always been of great value to designers, architects and facility managers as a password-protected site exclusively for trade, but in this economy, TODL becomes a true solution for design professionals who need to lessen their product research and specification time, and manufacturers who need extremely cost effective options that get their products in front of the design professionals who are looking for them.
Here's just a handful of interesting projects currently being specified in TODL:
A women's center, a supreme court, a lobby for a suites hotel, a conservatory, a university, a library, an equestrian center, medical offices & reception areas, television station lobby, entertainment studios, a church, a museum, a hospital, a luxury sky box, a building project of 17 custom homes in Costa Rica, a private club, a commercial project in Dubai, two separate golf clubhouses, seven different bars, pubs and lounges, three assisted living facilities across the country, four retail stores of various types, six commercial projects nationwide, five hotels including boutique and major brand hotel chains and three major condominium building projects.
Add to these countless private residences, penthouses, condos, apartments, waterfront homes and other residential projects, and you can understand why TODL is the solution for our industry today.
While the press continue have a field day with all the bad news, the good news is that our industry continues to design a brighter and better future daily.
