    SPECIFICATIONS - WHAT ARE THEY GOOD FOR?
    9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. 
    | 3 IDCEC hours

    Specifications are as important to the successful completion of a project as the design documents, however in many instances they are put together at the last minute sort of as an afterthought. The conversation in an office can be…… “hey all, what are we forgetting?…..OH YEAH! The specifications…..well let’s use the same ones we did in the last project…..” This sounds funny, but it’s true. Upon completion of this presentation, attendees will have a better understanding of the importance of specifications in the overall design and execution of the construction project.  +MORE DETAILS
