Robust Specification

GBE Classify

This work section uses CAWS classification

A second version of the file will be created to fit into Uniclass 2015 classification if the demand is there.

GBE was asked why this was not already in Uniclass 2015 to suit the BIMers. LinkedIn

Our response is that Uniclass does not have a place for Hedge Bank Walling nor its components so we will have to create them and adopt them until Uniclass is updated and then bumps ours elsewhere.

If you need to adopt Uniclass or add this specification into NBS Create then the following gives you each Classification’s closest fit, GBS’s proposed new work section or proposed clause numbers to allow easy insertion of the clause into CAWS 2012 or Uniclass 2015 work sections.

If you come up with a better proposal we will be interested to hear about it.
