McGraw-Hill Construction Sweets, the one-stop source of building product information for the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) community, has developed and launched a new mobile app that enables design professionals to search and download specs, CAD, BIM, catalogs, data sheets and more quickly and easily on their iPhones and Android devices. Design professionals can choose from the thousands of building products via Sweets Search or by “MasterFormat Browse” to find the products that meet their design vision.

“Sweets.com is the leading source of building product information, and now design professionals will be able to find product information from wherever they are. Whether in their offices or out in the field, they’ll be able to get CAD files, BIM objects, specs and product catalogs on their smart phones,” states Michael McNerney, senior product director, McGraw-Hill Construction.

Sweets has over 75,000 registered users who perform more than 3 million product category searches each year. Users can search, compare, and select from thousands of product catalogs, computer-aided design (CAD) details, three-part specifications and building information modeling (BIM) objects. Sweets mobile offers what designers need when and where they are making design decisions.

Furthermore, this new Sweets mobile app provides building product manufacturers who currently list their product information on Sweets with even greater access to design and construction professionals.
