With more than 300 Master Construction Specifications for new projects, it is also one of the largest sources of construction spending and job creation in the country. Total major and minor project spending reached $1.855 Billion in 2016, according to the 2017 VA Budget in Brief, and there were more than 1,930 jobs available for bid as of spring 2016.
INSTALL has partnered with Tarkett to prevent floorcovering installation failure by integrating INSTALL certification requirements into its resilient specification. The two organizations introduced the new specification at the Carpenters International Training Center (ITC) in Las Vegas on Nov. 11, 2016.
