Specifications 101

Specifications and GOOD Specifications, What is the Difference?

Tuesday, July 20, 2021

5:00 – 6:00 p.m.


Looking forward to seeing everyone in-person.

The Pacifc Club requires a negative COVID-19 test result (taken within 48 hours of the event) or provide proof of full vaccination prior to entry in order to network/mingle at this event. We apologize for any inconvenience.

People tend to forget that specifcations are an integral part of any project. They protect the owner, designer, and the contractor. Then why are so many specifcations poorly written? What are the most common formats they should follow? What defnes a GOOD specifcation and what are some examples? Come to our next membership meeting where Malea Buhlman will discuss Specifcations 101, the very basics we all should know about specifcation writing. After all, we are the Construction Specifcations Institute, correct?
