This paper aims to classification and structuring of explicit objects and properties which can be utilized in KBimCode and develop database in the Korean building Act. In order to conduct automated building code compliance checking, it is essential to translate requirements in Korean Building Act into a series of explicit and logic-based form for computers. As a basis of rule translation of Korean building permit requirements for the automated building code compliance, previous research shows how to analyze regulation sentences written in natural language.[1] Based on this, 1200 target objects and their related properties were extracted. The objects were captured in noun phrases of regulation sentences and classified into a series of types according to their information. Through the removing process of removing similar and ambiguous meaning of objects and properties they were transformed into explicit form. Then they were categorized into two types such as generic building object and building regulation-specific objects. In particular, latter whose condition regulations require to check have are based on dynamically instantiable objects from the implementation perspective. The same process of object extraction and classification was conducted for identification of target object properties. And as application of the object and properties Database, web-based database is suggested where user-friendly interface is provided to find some objects and properties or manage them, measure the stats and frequency of them.
