Architectural Specifications

The advantage of the CSI 3-part SimpleSpecs™ package for developing Architectural Specifications is simplicity.  Specifications are 1 to 3 pages long, written in Microsoft Word, and easy to follow during editing. This brevity also makes the specifications easier for tradespeople to understand and follow, resulting in fewer problems on the project site.

Download Example


SimpleSpecs™ is non-proprietary, and products are specified by reference standard, description, performance requirements, or a combination. A list of three (3) acceptable manufacturers is provided and is not based on a particular manufacturer’s products. Therefore each manufacturer listed in the specification is considered specified and may supply products based on the listed requirements.


CSI Divisions

SimpleSpecs™ used the CSI MasterFormat classification system offered by The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC). This classification system uses 50 “Divisions” to arrange construction materials and activities into similar groupings such as concrete, masonry, or metals.


Developed in Microsoft Word

SimpleSpecs™ master specifications are written in Microsoft Word to allow immediate editing for a particular.  Selection text is included within [brackets] and identified by red text.  Guidance is provided throughout the documents (when applicable) using Microsoft Word’s commenting feature.  Each section has been styled to allow auto paragraphs, numbering, automatic codes, and macros, which eliminates the need to renumber when editing and making document revisions.
