2019/08/13: An Update On Uniclass 2015
Uniclass is a consistent classification structure for all disciplines in the construction industry. It contains tables classifying items of any scale from a large facility such as a railway, down to products such as a CCTV camera in a railway station.
It’s an essential way of identifying and managing the vast amount of information that’s involved in a project, and it’s a requirement for BIM projects, as set by the BS EN ISO 19650 series of standards.
For more information see:
Uniclass 2 was been developed to produce a classification system for structuring information that is freely available for all participants throughout the life cycle of a project and beyond, which is endorsed by all construction and property bodies and professional institutions. It is dynamic, available online in various formats and managed by a team of experts who will monitor requests, update and control versioning.
The tables available in this tool are ready for use in applications to test their usability. Where missing classifications are identified they should be notified to the CPI Committee Secretary directly at firstname.lastname@example.org so that they can be added centrally for all to use. All comments and feedback are invited so that a national standard can be achieved for use by all.
The fully searchable Uniclass2 system is available for use at the link below:
