CSI Completes Content Development for MasterFormat™ 2004

The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) has announced it has completed major content development for its 2004 edition of MasterFormat, its specifications-writing standard for North American nonresidential building design and construction projects.

"This is a tremendous milestone for the industry," said Karl Borgstrom, CSI executive director. "After more than two and a half years of work, we've completed the structure and content of a resource that will advance project delivery for decades to come."

MasterFormat is a master list of titles and section numbers for organizing data about construction requirements, products and activities. CSI says that by standardizing information, MasterFormat facilitates communication amongst architects, contractors and suppliers about construction projects.

CSI revises MasterFormat every five to seven years.
