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 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 ( 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.
