Chicago, IL (June 10, 2022) – BIMsmith, the leading building product research platform for building professionals, and Sustainable Minds, the cloud provider of environmental and material ingredient product transparency data, have announced a partnership to enhance AEC professionals’ access to building product transparency data.
Included in the partnership is the development of a new integration between the BIMsmith and Sustainable Minds Transparency Catalog platforms. Through the integration, BIMsmith product listings will display a live sync of transparency data from the Transparency Catalog, while Transparency Catalog product listings will provide new access to product BIM content through BIMsmith. The connection between the two platforms will equip architects and other building professionals to reliably access the most up-to-date product data throughout each phase of their workflow.
“BIMsmith was founded as a holistic product research platform for building professionals,” said Benjamin Glunz, CEO of BIMsmith. “We recognize that sustainability data is a top priority for architects and designers, so we are excited to provide easy, dependable access to that data through our partners at Sustainable Minds.”
“Making sustainable product decisions comes down to making it easier to understand how to use the data to inform those decisions,” said Terry Swack, CEO of Sustainable Minds. “Connecting the product data found in the Transparency Catalog to the product data found on BIMsmith will equip designers to make better decisions about specifying credibly greener and healthier products.”
BIMsmith and Sustainable Minds will be discussing the new partnership and its benefits for designers at two upcoming events in Chicago: NeoCon (June 13-15, 2022) and the A’22 Conference on Architecture (June 23-24, 2022).
