    1. Scope

    1. Scope 1.1 This standard establishes a classification of Sitework Elements within the UNIFORMAT II family of elemental classifications (listed in 2. Referenced Documents below). 1.2 UNIFORMAT II is an elemental format similar to the original UNIFORMAT building elemental classification. However, the title UNIFORMAT II differs from the original in that it now takes into consideration a wide range of constructed entities that collectively form the Built Environment. 1.3 Elements, as defined here, are major physical components that are common within constructed entities. Elements perform their given function(s), regardless of the design specification, construction method, or materials used. 1.4 An elemental classification serves as a consistent reference for analysis, evaluation, and monitoring during the feasibility, planning, and design stages of projects. 1.5 Using UNIFORMAT II elemental classifications ensures a consistency in the economic evaluation of construction projects over time and from project to project. 1.6 UNIFORMAT II classifications also enhance reporting at all stages in a constructed entities life cyclefrom feasibility and planning through the preparation of working documents, construction, maintenance, rehabilitation, and disposal. 1.7 This classification is unsuitable for process applications or for preparing trade estimates. 1.8 Being more appropriate to large campus like projects this classification may be used as an alternative to Related Sitework (included within E1557 Building Elements and Related Sitework).

    Rationale

    Originally set as WK 24254 (a revision to E1557) a s/c decision was made to proceed as a separate standard. (approved in October 2014 meeting) This new work item became necessary due to the intransigence of the ASTM Work Item system (does not permit an edit to change 'revision' to 'new' type item

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
