    Within the construction industry, there is an increasing demand for information, especially with constantly changing products, technological developments and solutions pervading the marketplace. In this context, the idea of an ‘ultimate classification system’ has often been seen as a misnomer, or a bridge too far. While it is acknowledged that a multiplicity of different classifications exist around the world, the incongruent and disparate nature of them could (and should) be revisited. This would help to provide clarity and unity (if nothing else) and presents a more holistic view of existing classification systems in order to provide the basic rubrics for future classification systems. © 2008 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
