At Kalin Associates, we have extensive experience master specification writing for companies and agencies.
Master specifications communicate your corporate memory and design preferences to the architects and engineers you engage for your projects. Kalin Associates has prepared national master specifications for companies with large property portfolios, including United Parcel Service, Nextel Communications, AvalonBay Communities, the Ahold Companies, Fresenius Medical Care, Wellesley College, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
We have prepared master specifications for state agencies and authorities, including the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (DCAMM) and the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA).
Kalin Associates also provides master specification assistance to design firms, including firms seeking to green their specifications, switch from CSI 5-digit to 6-digit Masterformat, update technical standards, and develop advanced automation techniques to streamline document production.
We have prepared master guide specifications for more than 200 building product manufacturers in all CSI Masterformat divisions, including firms such as WR Grace, Overhead Door, MechoShade, Aqua Control, and Duncan Galvanizing. Manufacturers typically provide these specifications on their websites to provide guidance to architects and specifiers.
