Abstract:

The primary objective of this study is to review the Construction Specifications Institute CSI 16 Division format and through analysis of a sample of construction specifications currently in use, propose a new divisional structure which would better accommodate typical engineered projects. The types of projects which initially were selected for inclusion in this study included airports, treatment plants, roads and bridges, waterways and tunnels, power plants and petrochemical plants. By testing the proposal and refining it, a better, more applicable structure will be proposed which will better suit the overall needs of the construction industry.
