I have a client who is going to do a project in London, U.K. Anyone have any information on:
Is there a U.K. Specification Institute (similar to CSI) that has an established specification format?
Does the U.K. have a specification standard or is there an international specification format that is used there?
Is it feasable to incorporate British Standards into CSI format specifications?
Any comments, tips, advise on doing a project in London?

At our SCIP meeting in Dallas there was a specifier from England. Mark Kalin should have his name and perhaps contact information.

Thanks. Gerard mentioned that also. I talked to Mark and Lars and they directed me to Nick Schumann the specifier from England.

Wrong- architects write the specifications, while quantity surveyors prepare bills of quantity
We are architects in london and can provide UK assistance for American or other nationals interested in UK projects

You may wish to check with Bob Johnson at RTKL since his firm has a London office and yes there is a UK standard. They use "Uniclass" work sections tables which is published by RIBA. The OCCS Development Committee looked at this publication as an example in the development of "Omniclass" the North American Classification strategy for the built environment. The UK format has a classification table for building projects and one for civil projects.
Bob has far more information on this subject than I do and should be able to provide you with the best information.
