Time for another update of uniclass 2015. This time there has been 224 updates with 133 new codes added to Co, En, Ss, Pr, TE, Zz & PM tables, 52 codes have been deleted from the Ss & Pr tables & 39 codes have had title changes from the Co, En, Ss, Pr, TE & Zz tables.
This is the latest in our quarterly updating programme for Uniclass 2015. It includes updates to seven tables.
We aim to minimize changes to existing codes and classifications, but we always take feedback from users into account. Any changes are the result of this input combined with our own ongoing review.
Updates to existing tables
The changes to the CAD, Tools and Equipment, Complexes and Entities tables are minor amendments and corrections. The changes in the Products table include new codes requested by users and corrections to classifications.
In the Systems table, we have corrected and amended a number of classifications and moved the kerb systems to a new subgroup. Some new lighting systems and water quality monitoring systems have been added.
For the Project Management table, we have been working with the Ministry of Justice and have added a number of new codes to match their requirements.
Full details of these changes are detailed in the revisions sheets and the Excel change log.
Continuing input and feedback
Between updates, we liaise regularly with a growing number of individuals and organizations using the tables in order to provide support and to 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 those 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.
