Building Economics Subcommittee Plans Changes to UNIFORMAT II Standard

Subcommittee E06.81 on Building Economics is planning a special workshop meeting during the October Committee Week to discuss revisions to ASTM E 1557, Classification for Building Elements and Related Sitework — UNIFORMAT II. The exact date, time and location of the E 1557 workshop will be announced prior to the Committee Week. All parties interested in proposing revisions to E 1557 are invited to attend the workshop, during which task group members will consider all changes and plan the implementation of those deemed valuable.
Proposals for changes to Classification E 1557 should be submitted to Anthony Huxley, task group chair, by Sept. 17. “These proposals will need to be specific and detailed, showing the precise changes proposed, and should include a statement of their beneficial impact on the overall standard,” says Huxley, “General, broad proposals are unlikely to be considered persuasive.” Huxley also notes that submitting proposals via his e-mail address would be the most expedient method of getting changes to him.

For further technical information, contact Anthony Huxley, Kemptville, Ontario, Canada. Committee E06 on Performance of Buildings meets Oct. 3-6 during the October Committee Week in Washington, D.C. For membership or meeting details, contact Steve Mawn, ASTM International (phone: 610/832-9726). //
