CSI 17 Specification for Instrumentation

Clifford T Johnson, P.E., CSE

It is a definitive example of a Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) performance specification based on the MasterFormatTM that is a master list of numbers and titles for organizing information about construction requirements, products and activities into a standard sequence. The MasterFormatTM was introduced in 1963 and consists of 16 Divisions. It is referred to as a performance specification document that specifies the minimum quality requirements for construction. It details how a “product” shall be manufactured and installed by a contractor. Unfortunately, constructing a building is not the same as a control system. This course details a Section 17100 specification produced by the client, the City of Detroit, was developed for the installation of Lime Silo material handling system in a government facility. We revised and tailored it for the actual portion of the project that covered the control panels operating the motors and valves for the silos. A new CSI Division/Section 17330 was created and submitted for approval. It now may be used as a guide Instrumentation projects.

It includes CSI 17330 Instrumentation Panels and Enclosures that we developed for the project.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
