Full Description

MasterFormat provides a standard filing and retrieval scheme that's used throughout the construction industry and can be used throughout the project life cycle. Construction projects use many different kinds of delivery methods, products, and installation methods, but one thing is common to all - the need for effective teamwork by the many parties involved to ensure the correct and timely completion of work. The successful completion of projects requires effective communication amongst the people involved, and that in turn requires easy access to essential project information. MasterFormat enables all of these things.

The MasterFormat 2012 Update replaces all previous editions. It is produced jointly by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC).
