From September 7 to 9, CONSTRUCT & the 60th CSI Annual Convention, produced by Informa Exhibitions U.S., is taking over Austin, Texas. The annual gathering offers architects, specifiers, engineers, and other design/construction professionals the opportunity to experience new building products, attend cutting-edge educational sessions, and network with peers and other industry professionals.
CSI has endorsed three American Institute of Architects (AIA) contract documents for owners and consultants. This comes after a thorough review of the files by the Institute’s technical committee, which analyzed the files for good industry practice, consistency, and alignment with the CSIS core technical values.
Many of CSI’s ardent members feel they are truly committed to the ideals, goals, and philosophies of CSI; that, in some ways the Institute is like ‘our family.’ However, the Sanders Family goes above and beyond, and takes this literally.
Two CSI events happening this fall include CSI Santa Clara Valley’s Silicon Valley Construction Expo and CSI Metropolitan New York’s 2015 Tradeshow and seminars. On September 16, CSI Santa Clara Valley will host its expo at Levi’s Stadium. Reservations for exhibitors and sponsors are now being accepted.
CSI has updated its GreenFormat resource, which is now available to purchase by both members and non-members for $50. GreenFormat is a standardized structure for organizing sustainable information elements associated with materials, products, systems, and technologies used in the built environment.
