In the hopes of fostering a more collaborative environment in the construction information industry, the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and CMD recently announced they have signed a five-year agreement to produce and exchange information, products, and programs.

In a ceremony at the 2002 CSI Show, representatives from both organizations outlined several projects the two sides plan to cooperate on, including:

  • Providing for the exchange of information regarding construction practices, and technology and industry news.

  • Developing projects and services to better serve their customers and members and the construction community at large.

  • Providing customers and members with quick and economical access to both organizations’ offerings.

In addition, the two groups will promote and distribute each other’s products and services.
