Electronic Drawings, CAD Files and Specifications

Go to for Computer-Aided Design [CAD] details in both .dwg and .pdf formats and specifications in the three-part Construction Specifications Institute [CSI] format.  Your architectural consultant will provide the information you need to write your architectural specifications that help eliminate additional costs resulting from redundancies and contradiction, which often require addenda or change orders.  Your consultant can help you make the specifications as competitive or proprietary as you wish.
