The Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Building Industry Consulting Services International (BICSI) have signed an agreement to cooperate on a number of activities to promote further growth and development of the telecommunications industries.


“Telecommunications systems have become an increasingly important component of today’s commercial and institutional buildings, connecting the world like never before,” said CSI President Gilman K.M. Hu.

“CSI recognized this trend in developing MasterFormat 2004 Edition, which includes a separate division for communications – Division 27. We look forward to cooperating with BICSI on advancing the telecommunications industries and working together on mutual interests.”


Under the agreement the two organizations will:


* Facilitate interaction between their members to promote a qualified and skilled workforce; consider regulatory issues of common importance; and further the development of the telecommunications industries worldwide.


* Regularly exchange newsletters and other information about each other’s key concerns and activities.


* Encourage the members of each association to exhibit or participate in telecommunications exhibitions or seminars sponsored by the other association.


BICSI president Ed Donelan described the partnership as a “vital step forward in connecting the ITS and telecommunications construction industries, providing valuable benefits to the members of both organizations.”
