NGS BEACON Building Element Assembly COde Number

NGS BEACON is part of NGS CODE and its results are part of GreenSpecSTUDIO

NGS BEACON has been in use for some time, as it is an integral part of GreenSpecSTUDIO but until now it has not been named there.

NGS BEACON Building Element Assemblies COde Number is an identification code assigned to unique combinations of components in element including outer facade/finishes, structure and inner linings/finishes;
NGS BEACON uses a combination of CI/SfB and CAWS codes that are recognised by those familiar with these classification systems. In the near future we should adopt the Uniclass 2012 BIM ready classification system, adapted to suit this application.
NGS have an ambition to add an additional element to NGS BEACON to represent the U value of the wall engaging with Code for Sustainable Homes.
NGS intend that the NGS BEACON codes are available to other information providers to permit CPI Coordinated Project Information where all parties use the NGS BEACON code to ensure they are all talking about the same item.  These could include CAD model providers, cost models, LCA assessments, etc.
