What is CSI?

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 all the nonresidential building design and construction industry's disciplines and meet the industry's need for a common system of organizing and presenting construction documents. CSI's nearly 18,000 members include architects, engineers, specifiers, contractors, building owners, facility managers, and product manufacturers. Its policy of industry-wide membership has resulted in improved communication and unprecedented teamwork to develop innovative products and services of benefit to all involved in nonresidential construction.
