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

Updates to tables

We have been working with a number of organizations during the last three months to improve the content of the classification tables. The following codes are now included in the tables:

  • Minor changes to the Form of information and Project management tables, following user feedback
  • We have been working with the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to include codes for equipment on the Energy Technology List
  • Codes for Structural grouting systems, Waste collection systems and Residential water mist systems have been added
  • Continuing work with Transport for New South Wales and Transport for London has led to the addition of a number of Entities, and the rationalization of the freight depots into a more appropriate subgroup, plus minor changes to the Complexes and Spaces tables

Other additions and amendments to codes and classifications in the tables have been made, following queries from 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 of 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 the changes.

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.
