PAS 1192-5:2015 Specification for security-minded building information modelling, digital built environments and smart asset management, defines a built asset as a:

'building, multiple buildings (e.g. a site or campus) or built infrastructure (e.g. roads, railways, pipelines, dams, docks, etc.) that is the subject of a construction project or where the asset information is held in a digital format'

It suggests that a built asset may include associated land or water, such as the catchment area for a water company or the navigation channels for a dock and that it may comprise a portfolio or network of assets.
