CSI Coding

CSI stands for the Construction Specifications InstituteConstruction Specifications Institute. CSI provides a coding breakdown for methods, materials and tasks for all of the construction activities that we typically deal with. This industry leading coding structure is the foundation of most construction specification writing, documentation and information management.

We have integrated CSI’s coding structure
(Master Format 2011 Update) as a foundation for the task breakdown structure in all of our scheduling templates and files.

CSI Divisions 1-16 Scheduling Templates are also available – please contact us with your request 1-800-988-9877.

We are offering construction scheduling templates in different levels of detail each for Residential, Commercial & Industrial Construction as a basis of all schedules that will provide for a common structure and consistency for all your schedules.

You can choose the particular scheduling template or file that suits the need of your projects. Note that the greater level of detail that you use will provide increased view, filter and report information. Our goal is to save you time and to empower you with a system that will provide the information that you need to see at any level.

For scheduling and communication puprposes, some task items have been renamed to familiar terms that we use within the Construction Industry.

We have also added two other major phases;

Pre-Construction Requirements
Includes all of the Pre-Construction Activities required to get the project ready for construction.

Project Duration
Includes all the Construction Activities throughout the actual construction phase. These tasks should be linked directly to the Pre-Construction activities as they are directly related to the their completion at various levels.

All construction activities are broken down into the following CSI Major Phases:

Listed under each major phase is a breakdown of CSI coding items at various levels of detail depending on the template or file that you are working with.

You can add, edit and delete task items as needed and use as a basis of your schedule templates or files. In addition, you can add your own code items in the other available fields.

With these pre-coded scheduling templates and files you can filter, view and report on any information relative to CSI Division #’s or CSI Code #’s.  If you use the same coding structure in all project files, you can view information across all of your projects.

You can ‘View Samples’ of the various coding structures available in our templates and files in our Scheduling Templates Page.
