Our latest research is about construction product information, which we have not researched for several years. We have always been keen to monitor trends in information formats that specifiers find most useful: particularly the trend towards digital forms of data. This is covered in this research, but there are bigger themes underlying this, which have taken on particular significance in the past few years: namely, building safety and environmental sustainability.

Classification of ‘things’ is an integral part in the successful delivery of interoperable data, allowing information to be organised and easily retrieved. To support the industry in assigning classification, NBS and the Government Industry Interoperability Group have undertaken an alignment exercise between Uniclass and IFC, removing the need to work through a manual decision process and improving consistent selection within the industry.
