Master the art of writing construction specifications with the techniques provided by a master in the field.

The demand in design firms for construction specification writers has never been greater. Specification writers must master the techniques for product selection, organizing the project manual, coordinating drawings and specifications, integrating engineering specifications and more. As few colleges teach specifications, the specification writer learns their craft in design firms with a mentor, and within the ever increasing pace of project design and construction. This topic is intended to cover the basics of specification writing based on our 30 years of active experience on more than 3,500 projects. We identify key issues with a look to the future, as LEED and BIM require more precision within specifications than ever before.
