What is a Unique Building Identifier (UBID)?

A UBID is a unique way to identify a property, building, or campus of buildings that is more specific than an address, parcel number, or building name. The City of Aspen is using UBIDs to attribute a unique identifier (separate from address or parcel numbers, which can be confusing) to properties under the Building IQ ordinance to ensure utmost clarity in property identification. Each property under the Building IQ ordinance will have a UBID, which the property owner will add to the property’s Portfolio Manager account.
