Construction specifications writing: principles and procedures
This newest edition of the comprehensive rulebook to the specifier's craft, Construction Specifications Writing has been updated to reflect the latest industry standards (including those from the AIA and CSI) as well as recent changes in computerized specifications, such as expert systems and database management. Yet the practical core of the book, its project-tested guidelines for creating specifications, continues to offer solid advice on every aspect of the process - Principles, Bidding Procedures, Conditions of the Contract, and Procedures (including how to select the right vocabulary and actually write specifications) - as well as how to organize and rank its various phases. A project manual checklist also provides a blueprint of the entire specification process ensuring that all requirements are fulfilled. The book also includes tips on using the CSI Masterformat; master texts from the U.S. military, NASA, federal civilian agencies, and the National Institute of Building Sciences; as well as end-of-chapter test questions. Fourth Edition of Construction Specifications Writing will help the architect, engineer, or project specifier create a construction project plan that is clearly written, up to standard - and feasible.
