MasterFormat is used throughout the building industry to format specifications for construction contract documents. The purpose of this format is to help industry professionals organize information into distinct groups when creating contract documents, and to assist users searching for specific information in consistent locations.
“The successful completion of projects requires effective communication among the people involved, and that in turn requires easy access to essential project information. MasterFormat, Uniformat, and other CSI and CSC standards represent a key benefit for our members,” said Nick Franjic, CSC’s executive director. “We are excited to renew our agreement with CSI to better serve the construction industry in today’s global business environment.”
An internationally recognized standard for organizing specifications and other written information for commercial and institutional building projects, MasterFormat is a product of CSC and CSI.
“We are thrilled to renew our work with CSC to better serve the construction industry worldwide, and proud of the contributions CSI and CSC members continue to make toward this important organizational system,” said Mark N. Dorsey, FASAE, CAE, CSI’s CEO. “Renewing the longstanding partnership with CSC for the next decade ensures maintenance and expansion of this vital resource.”
