The Construction Specifications Institute recently released a draft of the largest revision to the MasterFormat coding system it publishes in conjunction with Construction Specifications Canada. The final draft is expected to be completed in June and the revisions should take effect in the construction industry in 2004.

To ease the transition to the changes, Formare Educational Institute created a seminar that will be presented regionally beginning this month. “The Emerging MasterFormat – Answers to “So What?” had previously only been given to firms via invitation only.

Dates and locations for the seminars are available online at
