CSI Uniformat and MasterFormat

Vico Software is proud to have leveraged the support of The Construction Specifications Institute as we developed Vico Office.


Vico Office Takeoff Manager allows users to organize their construction-caliber quantities in both UniFormat and MasterFormat.


UniFormat is perfect for organizing preliminary construction information based on its systems and assemblies. It is most often used for preliminary project descriptions, performance specifying and cost estimation.


See an example of Uniformat data expressed in the Model Progression Specification.


MasterFormat is a master list of numbers and titles classified by work results or construction practices, primarily used to organize detailed cost information.  It provides a standard filing and retrieval schedule that is used throughout the construction industry.
