New beginnings


Welcome to the new consulting-Specifying Engineer website. You’ll notice that a lot has changed. We’ve added great new options and removed some that just didn’t receive a lot of traffic or good feedback. We welcome you to send us your ideas and opinions.

We also welcome your stories, videos, and other ideas.

Consulting-Specifying Engineer is now with a new publishing company, CFE Media. Our new publishing platforms give us a lot of flexibility, and offers us (and you) many opportunities online. 

Here’s your chance to submit content to the new website. We are now accepting proposals for the following items: case studies, videos (instructional), white papers, and research or market information. The editorial team will review your proposal, and let you know whether it's appropriate for our audience. Feel free to send multiple options, and new items as they become available.

Your contribution will be viewed by our e-newsletter subscribers as well as visitors to our website, and will be pushed out to an even larger audience via our social media outlets. This is a great way to put your company's experts in front of the commercial building and engineering community.

Let us know what you’ve been up to!
