Introduction:


This list is based on Committee for Coordinated Project Information (CCPI)’s Common Arrangement of Work Sections (CAWS) however over decades of project specification writing BrianSpecMan found their list insufficient in some areas.

Some methods of construction warrant separating out of work sections eg. G20 needs subdivision:

  • A38 Waste management
  • A39 Packaging waste management
  • A90 Performance Specification (Shop) G#10236
  • A94 Airtightness testing
  • A95 Infrared Thermographic surveys (free) G#512 N#530
  • C20 Demolition waste minimisation
  • C91 Alteration waste management
  • D20 excavation waste management
  • G21 Load-bearing timber blockwork
  • G22 Cross Laminated timber panel system
  • G23 Post and Beam frame
  • G24 Glued Laminated timber frames
  • G25 LTF Light Timber Frame
  • G26 SIPS Structural Insulated Panel Systems
  • G27 ISPS insulated structural panel system
  • G28 Dowelled/Nailed stacked wood panel systems
  • K43 Raised Storage/Access Decking Systems
  • M21 External Insulated Render
  • P10 Sundry insulation/proofing/fire stops
  • P11 Foamed/Fibre/Bead cavity wall insulation
  • P12 Fire Stopping Systems
  • P13 Acoustic Insulation/Proofing systems
  • P14 Wind Air Tightness Systems (Shop) G#10343
  • P15 Hemp-lime sprayed Insulation
  • P16 Hemp-lime insitu insulation
  • W21 Projection Paint Robust Specification Work Section (Shop) G#10693
  • Z11.0 metalwork generally
  • Z11.1 mild steel
  • Z11.2 aluminium
  • Z11.3 Austenitic stainless steel
  • Z11.4 copper/alloy
  • Z34 Hot Dip Galvanizing

This list of groupings and the work section lists reflects the total list from GBE, GBS, ASWS, NGS and BrianSpecMan‘s >33 years of specification writing practice and £2415m project value track record.

Introduction:


This list is based on Committee for Coordinated Project Information (CCPI)’s Common Arrangement of Work Sections (CAWS) however over decades of project specification writing BrianSpecMan found their list insufficient in some areas.

Some methods of construction warrant separating out of work sections eg. G20 needs subdivision:

  • G21     Load-bearing timber blockwork
  • G22     Cross Laminated timber panel system
  • G23     Post and Beam frame
  • G24     Glued Laminated timber frames
  • G25     LTF Light Timber Frame
  • G26     SIPS Structural Insulated Panel Systems
  • G27     ISPS insulated structural panel system
  • G28     Dowelled/Nailed stacked wood panel systems

P10 Sundry insulation/proofing/fire stops can be subdivided into:

  • P10 Sundry insulation/proofing/fire stops
  • P12 Fire Stopping Systems
  • P13 Acoustic Insulation/Proofing systems
  • P14 Air/Wind Tightness Systems

P11 Foamed/Fibre/Bead cavity wall insulation could be added to with:

  • P15 Hemp-lime sprayed Insulation
  • P16 Hemp-lime insitu insulation

Z11 Purpose made metal work can be subdivided into:

  • Z11.0 metalwork generally
  • Z11.1 mild steel
  • Z11.2 aluminium
  • Z11.3 Austenitic stainless steel
  • Z11.4 copper/alloy
  • Z34 Hot Dip Galvanizing

Additional Preliminaries:

Waste minimisation is addressed:

  • A38 Waste management
  • A39 Packaging waste mangement
  • C91 Alteration waste management
  • D20 excavation waste management
  • C20 Demolition waste minimisation

Each work section can have additional appendix for:

  • Manufacturers & Suppliers,
  • Installers & Applicators,
  • Service providers,

This list of groupings and the work section lists reflects the total list from ASWS, NGS, GBE, GBS and BrianSpecMan‘s >33 years of specification writing practice and £2415m project value track record.
