This foreword is included for explanatory purposes only; it does not form a part of Standard Specification ACI 330.1. F2. Standard Specification ACI 330.1 is a Reference Standard which the Architect/Engineer may cite in the Project Specifications for any building project, together with supplementary requirements for the specific project. F3. Each technical section of Standard Specification ACI 330.1 is written in the Three-Part Section Format of the Construction Specifications Institute, as adapted by ACI and modified to ACI requirements. The language is generally imperative and terse. F4. Checklists do not form a part of Standard Specification ACI 330.1. Checklists are to assist the Architect/ Engineer in properly choosing and specifying any necessary requirements for the Project Specifications. PREFACE TO SPECIFICATION CHECKLIST P1. Standard Specification ACI 330.1 is intended to be used by reference or incorporation in its entirety in the Project Specifications. Individual sections, articles, or paragraphs shall not be copied into the Project Specifications, since taking them out of context may change their meaning. P2. If sections or parts of Standard Specification ACI 330.1 are edited into project specifications or any other document, they shall not be referred to as ACI Standards, since the Standard Specification has been altered. P3. Building codes set minimum requirements necessary to protect the public. This Standard Specification may stipulate requirements more restrictive than the minimum. Adjustments to the needs of a particular project shall be made by the Architect/Engineer by reviewing each of the items in the Specification Checklist and then including the Architect/Engineer's decision on each item as a mandatory requirement in the Project Specifications. P4. These mandatory requirements designate the specific qualities, procedures, materials, and performance criteria for which alternatives are permitted or for which provisions were not made in the Standard Specification. Exceptions to the Standard Specification shall be made in the Project Specifications, if required. P5. A statement such as the following will serve to make Standard Specification ACI 330.1 a part of the Project Specifications. Work on shall conform to all requirements of ACI 330.1, Standard Specification for Plain Concrete Parking lots, published by the American Concrete Institute, Detroit, Michigan, except as modified by the requirements of these Contract Documents. P6. The Standard Specification Checklist identifies Architect/Engineer choices and alternatives. The checklist identifies the sections, parts, and articles of the Standard Specification and the action required by the Architect/ Engineer.
