Preparation of Construction Specifications

Developed by NASA, SpecsIntact was designed for use by engineers, architects, specification writers, project managers, and construction managers to combine all or parts of existing specifications to create a unique specification for a given project. The SpecsIntact system and format allows for interchanging master text sections between agencies to promote uniformity, minimize duplication, and reduce the maintenance cost of common master text sections. NPR 8820.2 states, “For all CoF [Construction of Facilities] project specifications, designers shall use SpecsIntact, i.e., the Uniform Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS) found in the Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) (see http://specsintact.ksc.nasa.gov/ and http://www.wbdg.org/). For equipment or systems not adequately specified by using the UFGS, the designer may use professional judgment.” This standard presents a general guideline for selecting the content to describe the quality and type of workmanship and materials required for construction procurement at SSC. The format and specification standards described herein are developed for the NASA SpecsIntact automated system.
