This shortcoming had forced earlier MasterFormat editions to make compromises in classifying information. Such Band-Aid approaches resulted in misplaced or missing project information. But in the edition there are several slots, at both level 3 and level 4, getting specific on various insulation types:.

Education Options InCSI plans to provide education at architectural, engineering and construction firms, corporations, government agencies and other organizations. In NovemberMasterFormat expanded from 16 Divisions to 50 Divisionsreflecting innovations in the construction industry and expanding the coverage to a larger part of the construction industry. For example, plumbing insulation is in the new Plumbing division section 22 07 SpecsIntact was developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration NASA and designed for use by engineers, architects, interior designers, specification writers, project managers and construction managers.

MasterFormat is a standard for organizing specifications and other written information for commercial and institutional building projects in the U. The content contained in the old Division 16 Electrical is expanded by creating new divisions concerning both power delivery and data and communications transmission: With its edition, MasterFormat saw the biggest rewrite in its history. A new section-numbering system using six digits in pairs, instead of five digits, that expands more than a hundredfold the level 3 sections possible in each division.

MasterFormat – Wikipedia

Process Equipment Subgroup Divisions This subgroup expands MasterFormat to address manufacturing, water and wastewater treatment, power generation and other types of process engineering projects. In section 01 78 00 Closeout Submittals there is a level 3 section ci 78 53 titled Sustainable Design Closeout Documentation for specifying this information.

And insulation for process piping and equipment is in the new Process Integration division section 40 42 It has broadened and deepened considerably. And it goes beyond buildings to address horizontal construction, such as roads, rail and utilities. Owners are attracted to the new edition because its expanded scope provides for project performance specifications. For example, data slots for lightning protection, fire suppression, and detection and alarm were contained in Division 13 Special Construction instead of Division 15 Mechanical or Division 16 Electrical because Division 13 had room.


Retrieved from ” https: In addition to providing for more detail, MasterFormat Edition has moved data slots for certain other types of insulation divisiions more meaningful organization. Those who know the old Division 7 should adapt easily to the new edition.

The industry is evolving too fast for that. Site and Infrastructure Subgroup Divisions This subgroup expands MasterFormat to cover site and heavy civil projects. And CSI is developing a process so that as changes come about, section and division numbers will be added continuously.

Those are tools for doing a better, more intelligent job of specifying insulation.

Fire suppression masterormat insulation is in the new Fire Suppression division section 21 07 For example, green building, rarely mentioned 40 years ago, is now a major concern. This section needs to be updated.

It will replace the practice of simply publishing a new edition every several years. Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.
