Building activities 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 Uniclass classifications, state that:
“Activities can be classified by function and while there is a close relationship between Activities and Spaces, they do not necessarily have one-to-one correspondence. A given Space may house a multitude of Activities, consecutively or simultaneously. Also, a given Activity such as administration, storage or circulation may be distributed across many Spaces. Classification for Activities will prove useful for briefing and space planning.”
“…defines the activities to be carried out in the complex, entity or space. For example a prison complex provides a Detention activity at a high level, but can also be broken down into individual activities like exercise, sleeping, eating, working, etc.”
