A well prepared and up to date coating specification is an essential element for any successful coating job. Having a clear set of requirements and procedures prior to any coating job is important. DCC has extensive experience in the preparation of "traditional" specifications but also specifications for DBFM projects (design, build, finance and maintain). DCC can assist contractors with the preparation of method statements in the context of so-called "functional specifications". Functional specifications are performance based and typically used by governmental organisations.
