Uniclass 1.4 legacy release
Uniclass is a voluntary classification system for the construction industry that can be used for all aspects of the design and construction process, including; organising documents in libraries, structuring project information, cost information, specifications, and so on. It was created in 1997 by Construction Project Information committee (CPI).
Uniclass 2015 is the latest iteration following criticism that Uniclass was not genuinely unified, was inconsistent, had poor integration of civil engineering and building works and was essentially a paper-based system.
The superseded Uniclass 1.4 and Uniclass 2. Uniclass 1.4 legacy release is provided here via CPI under a Creative Commons Attribution-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License.
