What is a branded worksection?

Branded worksections are technical worksections developed by NATSPEC in conjunction with PALRAM as a NATSPEC Product Partner. Each branded worksection is based on the associated NATSPEC generic worksection and shares the same classification number. It is a MS Word document Template which follows the NATSPEC style and can be customised.

Advantages of NATSPEC branded worksections

  • An alternative to a generic worksection where a particular product has been selected at the design stage. Associated generic material not manufactured by the Product Partner is still provided.
  • Minimal customising required as the Template has been approximately 90% pre-edited in conjunction with the Product Partner.
  • Current product information is readily available and accessible via hyperlinks between the Template and the Product Partner's website reducing research time and facilitating early decision making.
  • The possibility of product substitution by the contractor may be reduced as the unique performance characteristics of the product are clearly specified.
  • Specifiers can rely on NATSPEC industry knowledge and regular updates of the relevant standards and building codes.
