Lecture 40 - Page 1 of 14 Lecture 40 – Concrete Specifications Project-specific construction documents generally consist of two items: Design Drawings Specifications The Design Drawings graphically present the specific design of the structure. However, they do not indicate the specific requirements relating to: Materials Submittals Job conditions Testing & inspection Execution of work CSI – Construction Specifications Institute The CSI was founded in 1948 in an effort to organize trade-specific specifications into a uniform, industry accepted format. 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 3 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. 03050 – Basic Concrete Materials and Methods 03100 – Concrete Forms and Accessories 03200 – Concrete Reinforcement 03300 – Cast-in-Place Concrete 03400 – Precast Concrete 03500 – Cementitious Decks and Underlayment 03600 – Grouts 03700 – Mass Concrete 03900 – Concrete Restoration and Cleaning
