1 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 1 UniFormat, OmniClass, MasterFormat UNIFORMAT II -- an org system for building “Elements” Elements: foundation; foot path; waterway lock gate t Roots in 1970’s GSA-UNIFORMAT and AIA-MASTERCOST t ASTM reworked as ASTM E w/ 3 Levels: Standard Classification for Building Elements and Related Sitework - UNIFORMAT II t CSI published an aid to use of the 3 Levels in 1998  E.g., Steam is in D3040, HVAC Distribution Systems CSInet.org; $77 mem; $140 non-mem t NIST proposed detailed Level 4 breakdown in 1999  E.g, Steam = D3043 t ASTM revised again 2001 with suggested Level 4 (NIST-like)  E.g., Steam = D304003

3 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 3 Level 1-3 Elements, Con’t

4 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 4 Where to use it? “Programming” (PreConceptual/CD0 - Conceptual/CD1) “Schematic” Design (Preliminary Design)

5 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 5 UNIFORMAT vs. CSI MasterFormat in Specs and Requirements from NISTIR 6389

6 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 6 Use of UNIFORMAT Original UNIFORMAT was developed specifically for design phase estimates. UNIFORMAT II is applicable to all phases of a building’s life cycle. The classification is currently applied for:  Planning Estimates  Program Performance Specifications  Program Technical Requirements  Program Estimates  Preliminary Project Descriptions  Preliminary Construction Schedules and Cash Flow Projections 17  Design Phase Estimates  CAD Layering  Cost Risk Analysis 18  Life-Cycle Cost Analysis Reporting  Function-Cost Models and Brainstorming Checklists in Value Engineering 19  Checklists for Technical Design Reviews  Design-Build Facilities Procurement  Construction Progress Reporting for Interim Payments  Construction Claims Analysis  Building Condition Evaluation  Scope of Work Definition for Building Renovations and Retrofits  Long-Term Capital Replacement Budgeting  Classifying and Filing Product Literature  Organizing Design, Engineering, and Cost Information for Manuals and Databases  Organizing Maintenance and Life-Cycle Cost Data

7 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 7 The Future: OmniClass Formerly the Overall Construction Classification System (OCCS) -- CSI is secretary; promoting use of standardized tables of nomenclature for built environment (e.g, UNIFORMAT for d. Element) a. COMPLEX: Association of related facilities, often in intricate combination, interacting to contribute to an overall mission. Examples: Neighborhood, farm, military base, airport. b. FACILITY: Definable unit of the built environment with a primary use. Definable units inherently have a site. Definable units may be grouped into Complexes, characterized by having more than one primary use. Each definable unit may have sub-components, defined as Spaces, characterized by sub-uses. Examples: office building; park, apartment building. (Note: A Facility becomes a Complex when it is of a scale or complexity which includes more than one primary use.) c. SPACE: Definable unit forming a part of a Facility with a specific use. Examples: auditorium; janitor closet; office; aircraft runway. d. ELEMENT: A physical part or system of a facility with a characteristic function (such as enclosing, furnishing, servicing) defined without regard to the technical solution, method, or form of construction. Examples: foundation; foot path; waterway lock gate. e. PRODUCT: A material or an assembly which is marketable as a component for application into a facility. Examples: aggregate; concrete; door; coil liner. Note: The “Products Table” must include: Both raw materials and components; A time line of source/use: (tree > board > cabinet) f. PROCESS AID: Item used for the acquisition, maintenance, operation, or recycling of the facility, but not included as a permanent part of the facility. Examples: scaffolding; construction tools; consumable stores (e.g., welding electrodes); design production tools, documents (e.g., specifications). g. PROCESS SERVICE: Activity directed towards the acquisition, maintenance, operation, and recycling of a facility. Examples: funding; project administration; bonding, property insurance; demolition; site evaluation; product testing; grass cutting; HVAC maintenance. h. PARTICIPANT: One who performs a Process Service. Examples: owner; lawyer; architect; crane operator; janitor, facilities manager, security guard. i. ATTRIBUTE: A physical, performance, or relational characteristic of facilities, products, process aids, and process services. Examples: design loads; elongation; scale, operability

8 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 8 MasterFormat Expansion t Taking input now, completion expected Fall, 2003 t Principles: 1. Impose as little change as possible into the divisions that have composed the architectural building subjects. 2. Drop MasterFormat TM 's product classification function. 3. Make MasterFormat TM more acceptable to building engineering disciplines. 4. Expand MasterFormat TM to cover other than building construction adequately. 5. Revise MasterFormat TM to follow classification principles. 6. Provide space for expansion within each division. 7. Maintain organizational consistency among divisions. 8. Expand MasterFormat TM to have the capacity to comprehend the full life cycle, including use by owners and facility managers.

9 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 9 Proposed MasterFormat, 1 of 2 DRAFT 0 - Procurement and Contracting Requirements 1 - General Requirements 2 - Existing Conditions (Div 2 Separated into Ground Construction & Site Improvements) 3 - Concrete 4 - Masonry 5 - Metals 6 - Wood and Plastics 7 - Thermal and Moisture Protection 8 - Doors and Windows 9 - Finishes 10 - Specialties (Reorganized to Hierarchical Arrangement) 11 - Equipment (Reorganized to Hierarchical Arrangement & non-building equipment removed) 12 - Furnishings

10 Los Alamos NATIONAL LABORATORY 6/25/02, Sheet 10 Proposed MasterFormat, 2 of Special Construction (Reorganized to Hierarchical Arrangement & non-building construction removed) 14 - Conveying Equipment (Transportation Systems removed) 21 - Life Safety and Facility Protection (New Division with existing material from Divs 7, 13, & 15) 22 - Plumbing (Div 15 divided into Plumbing & HVAC) 23 - HVAC (Div 15 divided into Plumbing & HVAC) 24 - Electrical (Div 16 divided into Electrical & Communications) 25 - Communications (Div 16 divided into Electrical & Communications with existing material from Div 13) 31.
