Specifications

Definition: an explicit set of requirements to be satisfied by a material, product, system, or service.- ACI Concrete Terminology


ACI defines an ACI reference specification as a standardized mandatory-language document prescribing materials, dimensions, and workmanship, incorporated by reference in Contract Documents, with information in the Mandatory Requirements Checklist required to be provided in the Project Specification. A reference specification provides most of the detailed construction requirements that the Architect/Engineer (A/E) must convey to the Contractor.
