Two BTC Team Members Earn Construction Specifications Institute CDT Designation

Engineering Consultant, Chris Kottra, and Architectural Consultant, Andrea Baird, recently passed the Construction Specification Institute's (CSI) examination for their Construction Documents Technology (CDT) certification program.

As a Construction Documents Technologist, Mr. Kottra and Ms. Baird have joined a highly respected group of construction industry professionals that possess comprehensive knowledge regarding the preparation and management of construction documents. The CSI CDT credential indicates that both Mr. Kottra and Ms. Baird uphold a high standard for developing, managing, and communicating all aspects of complex repair projects.

Building Technology Consultants, Inc. (BTC) now has five team members who have obtained the CDT credential: Mr. Kottra, CDT; Ms. Baird, Assoc. AIA, E.I.T., LEED AP, CDT, CIT; Mr. Reicher, SE, CDT; Mr. Sietmann, RRO, CIT, CDT; and Mr. Long, CDT. In addition, BTC's principal, Kami Farahmandpour is a Certified Construction Specifier as well as a Certified Construction Contract Administrator. The advanced study of these individuals is a strong indication of their own and BTC's ongoing commitment to provide our clients with a high level of knowledge and expertise to deliver projects on time and within budget.

Specifically, the objective of CSI's CDT program is to (1) improve construction documentation; (2) demonstrate knowledge of CSI's recommended practices in construction processes, contractual relationships, and relationship and organization of construction documents; and (3) gain familiarity with CSI's recommended fundamental principles of specification writing.

Again, we congratulate BTC's Andrea Baird, CDT and Chris Kottra, CDT on their accomplishment.
