Construction Product Requirements for Design/Build
Use this 3-part SimpleSpecs™ to specify general construction product requirements for design/build projects, applicable to all products specified in Divisions 02 through 50.
General Product Requirements:
This section specifies statements to specify the general requirements applicable to all products. Eliminating the need to repeat the statements in each section in Divisions 02 through 50.
- The terms used in this article coordinate throughout the SimpleSpecs™ Master Specifications system. They provide multiple ways in which to specify products and make the process of reviewing substitutions easier.
- In SimpleSpecs™ the terms “or equal” and “or approved equal” are not used. “Or equal” does not require that the Design Professional review the alternate product that the Subcontractor wishes to use.
- “or approved equal” does imply a requirement for review, it can still be problematic. While simple products make have exact equals, a more complex product like a light fixture may be a patented product for which there is no equal.
The product options used in this section should be used uniformly throughout all sections to ensure product options requirements are clear.
