About the Event
The mission of the Construction Specifications Institute is “Advancing building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance.” A key piece of building information management is the development of project specific specifications. Is it time to do some spring cleaning of your specifications? Are the specifications you write, bid from, and build from old and outdated? We will explore areas that design professionals can focus on when updating specifications and how suppliers and contractors can assist the design professionals in that regard.
After attending this program, participants will be able to:
1. Describe the definition of specifications and how they complement the drawings;
2. Identify terms and language to avoid in specifications;
3. Explain how manufacturer representatives, suppliers, and contractors can assist design professionals in delivering well written specifications; and
Apply techniques in specification writing to deal with current market conditions.
