A Day in A Specifier's Life
If you are like most folks in the design industry, you prepare specifications for your projects. Depending upon your firm, the methods range from sophisticated database-like software applications to basic word processing. Regardless of method, it can be mentally and physically draining. Likely, you only do it some of the time. Some folks dread it, while others experience a thrill from the research and word-smithing.
If you subscribe to CSI's Specifications Community, you can see the varied opinions and traits of specifiers. Specifiers have strong opinions, backed-up by deep convictions based on their experiences. They voice their opinions diplomatically and bluntly.
But, have you ever wondered what it is like to spend your days doing nothing but writing and preparing specifications? How much time is spent poring over the esoteric aspects of ASTM or other industry standards? How much time is spent talking with manufacturers? Well, it is a little more varied and chaotic than you would think.
We have gathered an eclectic panel of specifiers, who will relay what their lives are like. The meeting will be another virtual event, since some of our panelists are joining us from a distance.
Should you have any event questions, please contact our House Chair, Katherine Good at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use it for the end of your lunch time presentations. It is a series of slides developed by Chapter Leaders to introduce attendees to CSI and the Baltimore Chapter.
Charted in 1959, the Baltimore Chapter CSI is one of over 130 Chapters of the Construction Specifications Institute. The mission of CSI is to advance building information management and education of project teams to improve facility performance.
Founded in 1948, CSI is a national association of more than 9,500 volunteers, including specifiers, architects, engineers, contractors, facility managers, product representatives, manufacturers, owners, and others who are experts in building construction and the materials used therein. They are dedicated to improving the communication of construction information through:
A diversified membership base of allied professionals involved in the creation and management of the built environment.
Continuous development and transformation of standards and formats.
Education and certification of professionals to improve project delivery processes.
Creation of practice tools to assist users throughout the facility life-cycle.
