Specifications Section

Mission Statement

Professional responsibility for preparing, coordinating, reviewing and assembling engineering plans and specifications for new construction and maintenance work for the District. The section is also responsible for monitoring the Guide Specifications on the District Web Site.

Master Guide Specifications

Jacksonville District Master Guide Specifications are now in CSI MasterFormat™ 2010. Construction specification packages for the U.S. Army Engineer District, Jacksonville, (CESAJ) are prepared using SpecsIntact (SI). SI is an automated system for preparing standardized construction specifications. SI was created for NASA, NAVFAC, and USACE and draws from a master collection of files to create a project/job.

Jacksonville District's Master Guide Specifications shall be used instead of those sections provided in the Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS). The CESAJ Master Guide Specifications are tailored for projects constructed within the Jacksonville District. When a project is created in SI, the system automatically adds Sections 01 33 00 and 01 42 00 to the job. UFGS section 01 33 00 needs to be deleted and CESAJ's 01 33 00 added. Section 01 42 00 is no longer required and should be deleted.

NOTE: Please be advised that the CESAJ masters are updated periodically. It is recommended that you read all notes for the instructions. You must have the most recent version of SPECSINTACT software downloaded for the system to operate correctly.

Electronic copies of the latest UFGS may be downloaded from the Whole Building Design Guide website as follows:

Go to www.wbdg.org, click the "Unified Facilities Guide Specifications (UFGS)" link, go to the appropriate specification section, click the PDF link and download or print for mark-ups (in-house). A/E contractors may click the appropriate ZIP link to download the SpecsIntact file(s).

Latest updates of the SpecsIntact program may be obtained at http://si.ksc.nasa.gov/Software/Software.shtml. This site has links to the latest Master Specifications produced by UFGS. When downloading UFGS SI (sec) files with decimal section numbers into a project file, rename the section numbers by deleting all numbers to the right of the decimal point (the point will automatically disappear). Numbers to the right of the decimal are for master reference only.

Submittal of Project Specifications and Drawings for Electronic Bid Set (EBS):

Once a project is complete, it should be submitted to the Specifications Section through the Project Engineer. The project directory, under "\SISGML\JOBS\" should be copied and identified on the disk/CD. The project drawings shall be submitted in two formats: *.DGN and *.PDF.

All projects will be edited from the latest UFGS and CESAJ Masters. Do not insert a specification section from an old project into a new project. If a specification section is needed and not provided in the UFGS, the section may be typed in SGML-SI format and identified per CSI format.

Guide Specifications in SI format (*.sec). A/E’s should copy the CESAJ directory. Download the directory, with files, CESAJ into the location of your "\SISGML\MASTERS\". Submittal procedures use the UFGS format.

Guide Specifications in Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf). CESAJ writers of specifications may print from this file to mark-up guide spec to provide to CESAJ-EN-DC for final editing.
