NBS and CPIC to provide UK Construction sector with new unified classification system

NBS (National Building Specification) and the CPI Committee (Construction Project Information Committee) have announced they will be working in collaboration, along with the other key industry institutions, to help unify and encourage greater use of the Uniclass system in the UK. Uniclass contains 15 tables which classify different aspects of the construction process at various RIBA stages.

NBS’s proposals for Uniclass, which have just received industry-wide support though the endorsement of the CPI Committee, include plans for a new Uniclass work section classification, due to complete spring 2012.

Proposals also recommend that the existing coding of the classification system be unified, and the scope, depth and consistency of the Tables extended. This will ensure that the information required for professionals working within every sector, including architecture (buildings and landscape), civil and process engineering, is included and assimilated within all the Tables.

To introduce these proposals, NBS and the CPI Committee will be hosting a free learning seminar in London on 3rd February to explain Uniclass, its impact on the construction industry and the benefits it will provide. Register for the event here.
