When & Where
CSI Pittsburgh is the area chapter for professionals and students in construction industry-related programs who get together with local construction industry professionals to learn, expand their skills, knowledge, and network to contribute positively to their field.
The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) is a technical organization whose members include architects, engineers, specification writers, product representatives, and contractors working together to organize, standardize, and communicate construction information. CSI is unique, in that it facilitates an exchange of information between all participants in the construction process—a benefit not found in one-discipline organizations. CSI members have an in-depth understanding of construction because what they know goes beyond their job. They spend time with professionals from other fields, and learn how they fit with the rest of the building team. They are experts in the process of identifying real world building product solutions, communicating those solutions in construction documents, and ensuring that all the members of the construction team are building what the building owner wants.
