The Construction Specifications Institute, Inc. and ASTM International have finalized an agreement to link CSI’s Uniformat standards and ASTM’s E1557 standards within Crosswalk, a web service of the CSI-owned Construction Information Network, LLC, and a platform that integrates CSI classifications into construction technology.

Uniformat is CSI’s U.S. and Canadian standard for classifying building specifications as well as cost estimating and analysis.

The Construction Specifications Institute, Inc. and ASTM International have finalized an agreement to link CSI’s Uniformat standards and ASTM’s E1557 standards within Crosswalk, a web service of the CSI-owned Construction Information Network, LLC, and a platform that integrates CSI classifications into construction technology.

The ASTM E1557, meanwhile, expands descriptions of many existing elements. Therefore, integrating the two, according to CSI, enables the architecture, engineering, construction and owners industry to easily communication and build with more accuracy, safety and cost effectiveness.

The integration aims to allow a seamless translation between the two standards, according to Mark Dorsey, CEO of CSI.

“With this integration, we are seeking to solve the problem users of Uniformat and ASTM E1557 have traditionally faced when determining which standard to use,” said Brian Meincke, VP of Global Business Development and Innovation at ASTM International.

“Our agreement with CSI greatly improves the quality of construction information and communication among various users of the tool.  This integration furthers our commitment to providing our vast user base with the most accurate and up-to-date information needed to deliver the highest quality of work.”
