there also exists the context that in contracting, if a building project meets spec(ification) it is up to code and passes inspection.

"Meet" is present tense, and "met" is past. The article is missing, but this could be a headline format, in which no articles are used.

"Meet specification" sounds like a command or a plural subject ("the parts meet (the) specification"), and "met specification" sounds like a report that something (a mechanical part, etc.) has met a certain specification (condition, requirement, etc.).
