Causing the overcrowding were many recent advances in building technologies, driven mostly by computerization of facility systems management. The information contained in MasterFormat is organized in a standardized outline format within 50 Divisions 16 Divisions pre For example, green building, rarely mentioned 40 years ago, is now a major concern.

So is energy efficiency. A new section-numbering system using six digits in pairs, instead of five digits, that expands more than a hundredfold the level 3 sections possible in each division.

Retrieved 28 May A relatively new strategy to classify the built environment, named OmniClass, [8] incorporates the work results classification in its Table 22 Work Results.


General An increase to 50 divisions from MasterFormat TM Edition provides the means to meet these challenges. New topics concerning construction projects can be assimilated readily and systematically as materials, methods and technologies advance. InCSI plans to provide education at architectural, engineering and construction firms, corporations, government agencies and other organizations. That helps the project team deliver structures to owners according to their requirements, timelines, and budgets.


Standardizing the presentation of such information improves communication among all parties involved in construction projects.

A Section is divided into masterfor,at Parts—”general,” “products,” and “execution. It follows recognized information classification principles. This subgroup expands MasterFormat to cover site and heavy civil projects.

This page was last edited on 1 Augustat An indication of the widespread acceptance of MasterFormat is that the ASTM standard for sustainability assessment of building products relies on MasterFormat to organize the data.

And it goes beyond buildings to address horizontal construction, such as roads, rail and utilities. This shortcoming had forced earlier MasterFormat editions to make compromises in classifying information. Construction materials also have advanced.

Expanding Beyond 16 Divisions Since the early s, MasterFormat organized project data 204 16 divisions, with each division made up of section numbers and titles, the building blocks of any project manual.

MasterFormat 2004 Edition

MasterFormat users have several tools available with the new edition for transitioning from a previous version. SectionFormat is a standard for organizing information within each Section. It maintains organizational consistency and minimizes change where the previous structure is still adequate.

And adding to the congestion were new priorities for buildings. But in the edition there are several slots, at both level 3 and level 4, getting specific on various insulation types: Nasterformat has been revised already.

For more information about MasterFormat Edition or to buy a copy, go to www. In section 01 78 00 Closeout Submittals there is a diviions 3 section 01 78 53 titled Sustainable Design Closeout Documentation for specifying this information.

Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. Lastly, it covers process engineering construction, such as assembly lines and the manufacturing plants containing them. Owners are attracted to the new edition because its expanded scope provides for project performance specifications.

MasterFormat – Wikipedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification. That section has no additional data slots.

MasterFormat is used throughout the construction industry to format specifications for construction contract documents. Since the early s, MasterFormat organized project data into 16 divisions, with each division made up of section numbers and titles, the building blocks of any project manual.

And CSI is developing a process so that as changes come about, section and division numbers will be added continuously. SpecsIntact Specifications Kept Intactis an automated specification processing system for preparing certain government facility construction projects using standard master specifications, called Master Text or Masters, supplied by each of three government agencies.

The resource standardizes communication about projects for everyone involved:
