About Us

The Construction Specifier is the only publication specifically targeted to those professionals who select, recommend, or influence product decisions. It is the official magazine of CSI, a national technical organization, established in 1948, working to meet the industry’s need for a common language and system to organize, standardize, retrieve, communicate, and exchange construction information.

The Construction Specifier’s editorial focus relates directly to the job functions of its core readership—professionals involved in the specification process. The magazine reaches nearly 28,000* specifiers, architects, designers, engineers, and project managers. It is also passed along to other professionals, extending the reach and influence of its messages.

The Construction Specifier has an average of 2.4 readers per copy,** increasing the magazine’s potential audience to over 62,000 readers— readers who specify.
