Hello everyone,

Came upon this Forum by accident, but sometimes good things happen accidentally.

The name behind my moniker here (promart611-that threw Colin into confusion;)is Marcel Vatasescu.
I am a, umm, seasoned architectural professional based in Toronto, Canada but currently working as a Senior Architect for CH2M Hill in Doha, Qatar. For those interested, a full profile can be found on Linkedin at:

My reason to be here is a keen interest in learning more and being better at writing specs. I have been dabbing seriously in the matter for about 10 years now, and the interest has been growing steadily. But there is so much more to learn... so I came here to listen and learn and maybe post sometiomes like now, when I desperately need some info on arcane specs like 099423-Gilding or sections that didn't make it into the MF04 I have, last updated in 2007, like
120100-Operation and Maintenance of Furnishings.

Thank you all for reading this and let's start the process.

Welcome Marcel, enjoy the learning experience, its never ending. Unfortunately I can't help you on the two spec sections you seek, but there are many others here who may be able to. I have never had the opportunity to specify Gilding, but many moons ago I took a short course in it, fascinating stuff.

I wonder how big a place Doha is? I have a buddy working for United Development, he is a Project Development Manager, his name is Cory Evrad. If by chance you should ever run into him, extend my regards.

MasterSpec has a current (2013) Section 099423-Gilding, which covers oil gilding, which is suitable for exterior exposure.
