Since 1866 Campbell-McCabe has provided objective independant product specifications and architectural opening solutions featuring the world's leading brands. We are now in our second decade of LEED project experience.

Specialists in complete aesthetic, security, and life-safety solutions for every opening application. As a partner with your design and construction team, Campbell-McCabe provides assistance in each phase of the project, from pre-design through final punch-out and completion. Consultation and specifications meet local, state and international building codes, including IBC, CBC, Life Safety, NFPA 80, NFPA 80, NFPA 101, NEC, Fire Door Assemblies and ADA Guidelines.

Philosophy As independent consultants, Campbell-McCabe specifications involve no conflict of interest relating to any specific manufacturer’s product. Specifications are tailored to the needs of the user while allowing for competitive bid pricing. Manufacturer, rep agency, or product distributor employees do not write Campbell-McCabe specifications.

Product Selection Products selected are based on the direction of the architect and user. Campbell-McCabe provides specifications that maximize security and aesthetics while allowing for competitive pricing from the industry’s major manufacturing groups.
