BuildSite Launches Green Data

BuildSite, a source of product, technical, and procurement information for construction, announced the launch of BuildSite Green Data at the 2009 Greenbuild International Conference and Expo. Green Data offers a searchable database of green-building materials combined with online templates for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) product submittals. Submittal templates are based on the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED Online reporting requirements.

Green Data enhances BuildSite's database of more than 20,000 construction products from more than 300 manufacturers. Green Data users are able to sort product information by specific green attributes, such as volatile-organic-compound content, recycled material content, manufacturing location, SRI value, etc. LEED-credit-browse and advanced-parameterized search also are included. BuildSite's Distributor Directory helps users find local sources for green materials.
