Historic Renovation Specifications

Simply stated, simple historic renovation specifications for construction projects. A complex subject, but we make it simple by the use of our project worksheet and smaller, easier-to-use “master” specifications. Construction specifications do not need to be wordy to be enforceable. In fact, the opposite is true. Less complex, easy-to-follow specifications result in fewer problems on the construction site.


Historic Renovation Advantage

The advantage of SimpleSpecs™ historic renovation specifications is its simplicity. Written to include statements that affect construction cost or overall quality, it is far simpler to edit than other full master specification systems. A typical specification section from SimpleSpecs™ Short Form runs from 1 to 3 pages, while competing systems can easily run up to 20 pages or more. This brevity also makes the specifications easier for tradespeople to understand and follow, resulting in less problems on the project site.  Download Example



SimpleSpecs™ historic renovation specifications are non-proprietary sections that may specify products by reference standard, description, or performance requirements, or a combination thereof, and may include a list of acceptable manufacturers, but are not based on a particular manufacturer’s products. They are written such that any listed manufacturer may provide the specified products.


CSI 50 Divisions

This master specifications system utilizes the CSI MasterFormat classification system offered by The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC). This classification system uses the 50 “Divisions” to arrange construction materials and activities into similar groupings such as 03 concrete, 04 masonry, 05 metals, and 06 Wood, Plastics, and Composites.


Editable Specifications

SimpleSpecs™ historic renovation specifications are a series of Microsoft Word documents that are easily edited to suit a particular project’s needs. Optional text is included within brackets and identified by red text for easy identification and editing. Paragraph and page numbers are included as automatic codes, eliminating the need to manually renumber when revisions are made.
