Selected specs

Outline specifications are typically prepared by the design team during the schematic design phase of a construction project. They are very useful in communicating the scope of a project to the owner, construction manager and cost estimator. They are an important organizing structure for the team, as systems are not fully developed on the drawings in the early phases.

Outline specifications are brief documents which describe the scope and products for each system in a project. Outline specifications typically follow CSI MasterFormat, with 6-digit numbering, with text organized by CSI Format. Some offices include only Part 1 - General and Part 2 - Products as outline specifications, other firms also include, Part 3 - Execution within each section.

Outline specifications are not intended for competitively bidding a project due to their brevity. They are used as a starting point for full specifications during the design development and construction documents phases of a project.

Short-form specifications are similar to outline specifications, except that Part 3 - Execution is included in each section. In practice, short-form specifications may be used as construction documents for small, design-build and interiors projects. Short-form specifications are not intended for use with public-bid projects, or projects with complex systems.

To use the ARCAT Outline Specifications, simply check the boxes to sections which may be required, download the files, and further edit for your project! It is helpful to distribute the outline specifications to all members of the team so that they may contribute to its development!
