The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) is a national professional association
that provides technical information and products, continuing education, professional
conferences, and product shows to enhance communication among the building design
and construction industry's disciplines. CSI has been meeting the industry's need
for a common system of organizing and presenting construction documents since 1948.
The nearly 16,000 members includes architects, engineers, specification writers, contractors,
building owners, and material suppliers. CSI’s improved communication methods and
unprecedented teamwork approach help to develop innovative products and services of
benefit to all involved in design, construction and facilities management.
The CSCC student affiliate, established in 2005, meets monthly and students are encouraged
to investigate how this affiliation and opportunity to earn the Construction Document
Technologist (CDT) credential provides greater understanding and access to careers
in the construction industry. Mr. Dean M. Bortz, CSI, CDT is the current student chapter faculty advisor.
