It developed the “MasterFormat”, a breakdown of all construction-related activities into 16 divisions as follows: Division 1 – General Requirements Division 2 – Site Construction Division 3 – Concrete Division 4 – Masonry Division 5 – Metals Division 6 – Wood and Plastics Division 7 – Thermal and Moisture Protection Division 8 – Doors and Windows Division 9 – Finishes Division 10 – Specialties Division 11 – Equipment Division 12 – Furnishings Division 13 – Special Construction Division 14 – Conveying Systems Division 15 – Mechanical Division 16 – Electrical Each division has been further refined into multiple sub-divisions (as shown for Division 5 above). To obtain samples of specifications, go to In addition to technical specifications, the CSI MasterFormat is used by most of the construction industry for purposes of cost estimating, contractor qualifications, product research and supply ordering. 05050 – Basic Metal Materials 05100 – Structural Steel 05200 – Metal Joists 05300 – Metal Deck 05400 – Cold-Formed Metal Framing 05500 – Metal Fabrications 05600 – Hydraulic Fabrications 05650 – Railroad Track & Accessories 05700 – Ornamental Metal 05800 – Expansion Control 05900 – Metal Restoration & Cleaning
