TÜV Rheinland Joins Forces with GIGA to Simplify and Accelerate the Design of Sustainable Buildings

BOSTON, Nov. 10, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GREENBUILD 2017 -- TÜV Rheinland, the global testing and certification leader, today announced it has partnered with the international standards organization GIGA (Global Innovations Green Algorithms) in a new initiative to help construction designers and engineers build more sustainable buildings.

Under the partnership, some content from TÜV Rheinland’s global Certipedia certificate database will feed into GIGA’s online material data hub, Origin, which highlights certified, environment-friendly building materials and products. This new resource will empower designers to easily find and source green, healthy and sustainable building products, thereby accelerating the process of creating efficient, healthy and sustainable buildings.

According to Holger Kunz, executive vice president, products at TÜV Rheinland, the development represents a major step towards streamlining and accelerating the sustainability journey of today’s building designers.

“TÜV Rheinland’s Certipedia was specifically designed to be a user-friendly, online reference for certification, placing all available information referring to product and testing criteria in one place. Combining Certipedia with GIGA’s extensive, collaborative material data hub will transform the ease and speed with which designers can create superior, sustainable building designs that will deliver results for years, and decades, to come,” said Mr. Kunz.

TÜV Rheinland’s Certipedia database will be integrated into Origin’s infrastructure in the Autumn of 2017. Suppliers and industry participants will be notified in advance of the public software release to allow time to prepare and understand the integration process and its benefits.

“Origin is the world’s largest data integration hub for building products. By placing priority on transparency and reliability of data, Origin integrates product certifications directly from the world’s leading certifiers, combines it with supplier data, and connects it to building industry professionals globally. Partnering with TÜV Rheinland brings in a greater volume of high quality product data from around the world, making it easier for engineers to design, build and operate green and healthy buildings,” said Ryan Dick, founder and COO of GIGA.

A series of Webinars will be scheduled to assist with on-boarding and to help suppliers optimize their management efforts and reach within the expanded Origin ecosystem. The parties will reveal more information at the Greenbuild 2017 International Conference and Expo, taking place in Boston from November 8th-10th, 2017.
