This is the latest in our quarterly updating programme for Uniclass 2015 and includes updates to seven tables, and the publication of two new tables.

Publication of ‘Form of Information’ and ‘Roles’ tables

Following the publication of the Annex to ISO 19650-2, we have been liaising with the team writing the guidance to the new Annex to ensure that the ‘Form of Information’ and ‘Roles’ tables meet the requirements of the fields in the container names. This builds on the work that we have been doing with Transport for New South Wales. These tables have now been published, following their period as beta versions.

Updates to existing tables

During the last three months, we have been continuing our work with Royal HaskoningDHV and Northumbrian Water Ltd, and as a result a number of codes have been added to the ‘Entities’, ‘Spaces/ location’, ‘Systems’ and ‘Products’ tables.

We have also consulted Virtus Traffic Management Solutions Ltd and added some codes to the ‘Elements/ functions’ and ‘Spaces/ location’ tables to meet their requirements.

We have made some amendments to codes and classifications in the ‘Systems’ and ‘Products’ tables following some queries about the details. This should ensure that there is more clarity for users of the classification.

Continuing input and feedback

Between updates, we regularly liaise with a growing number of individuals and organizations using the tables, in order to provide support and evaluate requests for new codes. We are grateful to all the organizations that we have worked with for their input. As we share details of this activity, industry professionals can learn more about who else is using the tables, what purposes they are using them for, the range of changes to expect and the reasons for them.

The work of maintaining and enhancing Uniclass 2015 to continually support the needs of those operating in the built environment is an ongoing exercise. We welcome comment and input from all sectors in the construction industry via uniclass2015@theNBS.com.

Changes to published versions

Status and revision information is available alongside each Uniclass 2015 table. Each information sheet (pdf) provides a summary of the changes made, as well as code-by-code details.
