Construction Specifications FAQs

MasterFormat® is used to format specifications for construction contract documents.  MasterFormat® provides a master list of Division and Section numbers with associated titles. It serves as a standard for the organization of specification documents and other construction documents in Canada and the United States.  

MasterFormat is produced by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC) and available for purchase through their websites.

CADdetails uses the latest version of MasterFormat®, which is currently MasterFormat® 2020 Edition, when preparing CSI 3-Part Guide Specifications for manufacturers.
