Join CSI Chicago

Join. Connect. Engage. Advance.

Membership meets you where you are and where you're going as a project delivery professional. You are part of a community that elevates your profession and innovates across all aspects of the industry.

Specifications are baked into every construction project, translating design into reality. And while “Specifications” is part of our name, CSI is a lot more than specifications – it’s about construction communication, project management, and contract management for today’s dynamic environment.


CSI members make an impact. They’re equipped to bring projects to life, lead the industry, and move us toward a future that is technologized, diverse, and global.
