You Might be asking yourself what are all the Numbers about what is a Spec Section and how does it all apply to My Millwork Shop Drawings. Well Spec Sections are Governing Documents that are Sub sections of the 16 CSI Divisions.
 16 Divisions refers to the 16 divisions of construction, as defined by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI)'s MasterFormat. In 2004, MasterFormat was updated and expanded to 50 Divisions. The standard is the most widely used standard for organizing specifications and other written information for commercial and institutional building projects in the U.S. and Canada. It provides a master list of divisions, and section numbers and titles within each division, to follow in organizing information about a facility’s construction requirements and associated activities. Standardizing the presentation of such information improves communication among all parties involved in construction projects.


Before November 2004, MasterFormat was composed of 16 primary divisions: there are now 50 divisions.

    Division 01 — General Requirements
    Division 02 — Site Construction
    Division 03 — Concrete
    Division 04 — Masonry
    Division 05 — Metals
    Division 06 — Wood and Plastics
    Division 07 — Thermal and Moisture Protection
    Division 08 — Doors and Windows
    Division 09 — Finishes
    Division 10 — Specialties
    Division 11 — Equipment
    Division 12 — Furnishings
    Division 13 — Special Construction
    Division 14 — Conveying Systems
