MFC Estimating Follows CSI Standards for Excellence

Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)'s MasterFormat, is the standard for organizing specs and other written information for commercial and institutional building projects in the U.S. and Canada. This framework of standards helps architects, engineers, owners, contractors, and manufacturers classify the construction of work results using a variety of construction resources.

The CSI was founded in 1948 to unify construction specifications across the nation and thus, improve quality in building practices in order to meet the demands of the post-war construction boom. At MFCE, we follow these standard guidelines as outlined by the CSI, which are updated and regulated according to new developments and best practices in the industry.
