Guide specs according to CSI MasterFormat

At APCS we are big supporters of the Construction Specifications Institute or CSI. Victor Yakin, founder and president of APCS earned the CDT (Construction Documents Technology) certificate from CSI and is an active member of the local San Antonio chapter.

MasterFormat® from CSI is the standard organizational structure of scopes of work for a construction project, and form part of the project manual and also of the construction documents, or CD’s. APCS and the manufacturers we represent are well versed in MasterFormat® specifications and consequently offer guide specifications that can be easily edited and inserted into the project manual and CD’s of the project. More information on CSI and MasterFormat specifications can be found at https://www.csiresources.org/

Guide specifications for each manufacturer can be downloaded from the corresponding manufacturer’s page. For assistance understanding or editing guide specs for your particular project please contact us at info@apcs-sales.com or call us at (210) 862-6431.

We believe in competition, and in the better outcomes that can be achieved when alternative products that meet descriptive, performance, or reference standard specifications are allowed to bid as an “or equal” to a proprietary specification. Please contact us if we can assist preparing documentation to be submitted to a general contractor for one of our product lines to be allowed to bid.
