Yesterday I was emailed a specification from "the olden days". Interesting to see what changes and what stays the same over the years. This specification is believed to be from the 1880s.
Some screenshots below...
|01 - If the contractor damages the item after delivery - they pay for the replacement|
|02 - I've searched and searched, and we don't still have a cow dung mortar clause in NBS|
|03 - Nice to see the services being specified in the same format document as the architecture|
|04 - All good lighting performance specification should be measured in "candle power"|
|05 - Specification by brand is fine - Hartley's Glazing|
Thanks to ex-NBS Advisory Panel member John from Yianguo Architects who sent this through. If you have five minutes spare it is worth browsing their portfolio of high spec projects - some beautiful buildings...
