As alternative methods of project delivery become more popular, it becomes clear that all specifications are not alike and one size does not fit all. In fact, there are a many important concepts that need to be carefully considered before design professionals prepare specifications for a design-build project.
Specs 101, a new, six-part virtual series, brought to you by CSI, identifies the various underlying elements of specifications and how they coordinate with other construction documents and the different project team members who write and read them.
The CSI Foundation is seeking donations to help fund programs for 2021. Building off the success of last year, next year the foundation will seek expansion in core programs that focus on education, workforce development, and scholarship programs.
While the industry has a good handle on how specifications may change with technology, what about the actual job of a “specifier”? Will the role grow and change in the future or will it disappear completely in favor of a new model? These questions were the focus of a panel discussion held earlier this fall during CONSTRUCT 2020.
