The Construction Specifications, over 783 master guide sections in Divisions 00 through 46, are used to produce detailed three-part specifications for construction documents for design-bid-build and design-build projects. The software also creates over 30 automatic administrative reports, such as submittal requirements, that are useful during construction administration. The construction specifications are organized according to CSI/CSC’s MasterFormat® (2004/2012+ Update) and CSI/CSC’s SectionFormat™ (2008 edition). CSI/CSC's PageFormat™ (2008 edition) is one of the four built-in but customizable page formats available.
The master database includes the most commonly used and specified products and construction activities, including architectural, civil, structural, landscape architecture, interiors, plumbing, HVAC, fire protection, electrical, telecommunications, special construction work, and water and wastewater equipment.
SpecLink-E sections are complete "long form," non-proprietary specifications based on industry standard reference documents (ASTM, ANSI, etc.) with notes to the user at points in the text where user options or required choices occur. Shorter specifications can easily be prepared from the same database, by using the Outline/Short Form switch. User-changeable global options allow customization of units of measure and the terms employed for many variables such as the owner, architect/engineer, contractor, and the state where the Project is located, among others. Users can also create their own unique global terms.
The database also includes a small number of proprietary sections sponsored by individual building product manufacturers.
