    Revision of E1557 - 05e1 Standard Classification for Building Elements and Related Sitework-UNIFORMAT II

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E1557 - 09

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.81 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Prepare for the next re-approval ballot by: - editing the existing classification to meet the approved UNIFORMAT II Guidelines (most extensively in 6. Description of Building Elements and 7. Description of Building Related Sitework); - incorporating the completed and approved generic UNIFORMAT II family text changes and keyword designators (1.Scope, 2.Referenced Documents, 4.Significance and Use, and 8.Keywords), - and addition of previously balloted and approved Terminology ( 3. Terminology). - New Appendix X1 added (incorporating element reference numbers moved from the mandatory text into this non-mandatory appendix), - previous appendix X1 renumbered as X2, - previous Appendix X2 renumbered as X3 (content unchanged), - previous appendix X3 renumbered as X4 (it contains outdated material and is insufficiently inclusive of all the textual uses for UNIFORMAT II an update will be forthcoming). - The element names are unchanged and their hierarchy is also unchanged i.e. the essence of the existing standard remains, unchanged.
