WELL Certification

LEED Online、Arc和WELL Online与GIGA的ORIGIN数据中心连接

2017年11月22日——国际WELL建筑研究院 (International WELL Building Institute™, 或IWBI™)、美国绿色建筑委员会 (U.S. Green Building Council, 或USGBC)、绿色建筑认证协会 (Green Business Certification Inc, 或GBCI) 和GIGA循绿正式达成战略合作伙伴关系,共同推进材料为重心的新时代,进一步促进和支持以性能为驱动的健康绿色建筑的发展。

ORIGIN (筑源) 是由GIGA循绿开发的互联建筑材料数据中心,将与LEED Online、Arc 和 WELL Online进行整合,通过帮助产品数据的提交,以促进项目与产品制造商之间的更好协作。

“要想实现市场转型,就需要增加建筑材料数据的透明度和可访性”,IWBI董事长兼首席执行官 Rick Fedrizzi 表示,“它还要求整个生态系统是互联的,以便材料数据在制造商和项目团队之间轻松流动。这是整个过程中重要的一步。”

“我们相信建筑环境的下一个市场转型将由材料性能作为引导”,USGBC高级副总裁 Peter Templeton 说,“将ORIGIN连接到 LEED Online、Arc 和 WELL Online,简化了工作流程,帮助市场更大规模地设计、建造和运营更健康、更绿色的建筑。”

“由于建筑材料信息的复杂性、不完整性和不易获得,已经阻碍了建筑业数十年的发展”,GIGA循绿首席执行官 Raefer Wallis 表示,“ORIGIN通过连接目前在数千万个材料库中分散的数据,并使这些数据无缝地流向项目团队来解决这个问题。”整合将在2018年实施。

通过透明地标注数据来源,ORIGIN所提供的框架支持了参与数据库和软件工具的增长。有兴趣参加ORIGIN的供应商、行业材料库和测试检验认证机构 (TIC),请联系 r.best@giga.build。
