Building spaces definition

Uniclass is a voluntary classification system for the construction industry that can be used for structuring project information, such as building information models (BIM). It was created in 1997 by the Construction Project Information committee (CPIC).

The most recent version of Uniclass, Uniclass 2015, (maintained and updated by the NBS) suggests that:

"In buildings, spaces are provided for various activities to take place. In some cases a space is only suitable for one activity, for example a kitchen, but a school hall may be used for assemblies, lunches, sports, concerts and dramas. Also classed as spaces are transport corridors that run between two locations, such as London Kings Cross to Newcastle, or the M1 from London to Leeds."
