Classification of Buildings 2018

The Finnish Terminology Centre TSK participated in a project commissioned by the Statistics Finland to update the Classification of Buildings 1984. The new Classification of Buildings 2018 was published in December.

In order to take into account the present situation in house-building the classification was renewed in many ways. The structure of the classification and the names and descriptions of the classes were revised by using terminological methods. The new classification is more detailed than the old one, and all the classes are now described.
