How to Write Specs That are Clear, Concise, Correct and Complete
from Pro Trade Craft
Remodelers who write detailed specs couldn’t imagine working without them. “Costs on our last 35 jobs were within 0.82 percent of estimate and our change orders are consistently just 2 or 3 percent of annual volume,” says Paul Eldrenkamp, owner of Byggmeister, a design/build firm in the Boston area. He adds that it’s his company’s detailed specs that have made the difference. So why do so many remodelers fail to write good specs? The answers include misunderstanding about how to do them right and concern that putting in enough detail will take too long.
