Product Portals and Online Directories

There are more online product directories than anyone can keep track of, and new ones come online all the time. This is a small first step towards building a list of the more important directories.

BPM Select

This is a free building product search engine, designed for the AEC Community. BPM Select enables users to search, spec and source building products within a highly targeted database of national and regional manufacturer websites.

Like most major search engines, users can enter a keyword and BPM Select returns results. Unlike most major search engines, BPM Select returns only results specific to manufacturers of that particular product so there is less "noise" and fewer irrelevant results to sort through.

BPM Select also offers direct access to The Blue Book database, making it easy to locate the suppliers and installers of the specific products needed.
