‎For a constant $K\geq 1$‎, ‎let $\mathfrak{B}_K$ be the class of pairs $(X,(\mathbf e_n)_{n\in\omega})$ consisting of a Banach space $X$ and an unconditional Schauder basis $(\mathbf e_n)_{n\in\omega}$ for $X$‎, ‎having the unconditional basic constant $K_u\le K$‎. ‎Such pairs are called $K$-based Banach spaces‎. ‎A based Banach space $X$ is rational if the unit ball of any finite-dimensional subspace spanned by finitely many basic vectors is a polyhedron whose vertices have rational coordinates in the Schauder basis of $X$‎.

Using the technique of Fraïssé theory‎, ‎we construct a rational $K$-based Banach space $\big(\mathbb U_K,(\mathbf e_n)_{n\in\omega}\big)$ which is $\mathfrak{RI}_K$-universal in the sense that each basis preserving isometry $f:\Lambda\to\mathbb U_K$ defined on a based subspace $\Lambda$ of a finite-dimensional rational $K$-based Banach space $A$ extends to a basis preserving isometry $\bar f:A\to\mathbb U_K$ of the based Banach space $A$‎. ‎We also prove that the $K$-based Banach space $\mathbb U_K$ is almost $\mathfrak{FI}_1$-universal in the sense that any base preserving‎ ‎$\varepsilon$-isometry $f:\Lambda\to\mathbb U_K$ defined on a based subspace $\Lambda$ of a finite-dimensional $1$-based Banach space $A$ extends to a base preserving $\varepsilon$-isometry $\bar f:A\to\mathbb U_K$ of the based Banach space $A$‎. ‎On the other hand‎, ‎we show that no almost $\mathfrak{FI}_K$-universal based Banach space exists for $K>1$‎.‎

The Banach space $\mathbb U_K$ is isomorphic to the complementably universal Banach space for the class of Banach spaces with an unconditional Schauder basis‎, ‎constructed by Pełczyński in 1969‎.
