TECHnotes complement NATSPEC worksection Guidance text and cover a wide range of topics of interest to specification writers in 1 or 2 pages. They are general in nature and provide guidance for consideration that either relates to several worksections or does not fit into a generic worksection.
Numbering and classification of TECHnotes is based on the categories used for the AIA Environment Design Guide:
- GEN - General issues and miscellaneous
- DES – Design strategies
- PRO – Products and materials
NATSPEC worksections identify any relevant TECHnotes in Guidance text. A TECHnote will be reissued if it is significantly revised and the footer will reflect the date of reissue.
The TECHnote Index includes abstracts of NATSPEC TECHnotes which are currently available.
