Co-founders of Let's Fix Construction, Eric D. Lussier and Cherise Lakeside continue the conversation on Division 01: General Requirements that Cherise started on the blog post 'Division 01: The Project Road Map' which you can read at http://www.letsfixconstruction.com/blog/div01. Cherise speaks about creating the Specs 101 class and the rules of the project that are found in Division 01.
Eric talks about how obtaining his CSI CDT (http://csiresources.org/certification/cdt) was an eye-opening and enriching education that demonstrated how architectural specifications operated far beyond the Division 09 that his flooring finishes were found in.
The architect and their consultant document coordination are a source of conflicting information and Cherise's original presentation 'Architect/Consulting Engineer Coordination: Closing the Gap' was generated as a result of these issues.
