Project Fire is at the forefront of water and energy saving solutions designed specifically for the fire protection industry. For decades our products have been saving hundreds of thousands of litres of water every year. Working with ULE our products environmental claims are validated, reinforcing the credibility of such claims through robust certification, validation and testing services, helping our clients support their sustainability targets.
UL Environment's SPOT platform is the largest database of certified sustainable products. This web-based product sustainability information tool will facilitate the selection of credible green products and enable the design community to apply that information into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow. The SPOT database is a first of its kind tool for architects, designers and specifiers to identify products by sustainable attributes and building rating systems such as LEED v4.
Coming soon is an add-in which will enable AutoDesk® Revit® users to access product data from SPOT and assign it directly to their project (you can download our product BIM files here). This will provide unprecedented visibility into trusted green product information, enabling greater accuracy in green building reporting and certification to regional, national and international building standards. In the meantime, UL’s SPOT app is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
“SPOT seeks to be the solution for two major challenges facing the building industry— the time required to find necessary product data in multiple locations, and help ensure that the information they find is accurate and can be trusted,” said Carlos Correia, president, UL Supply Chain & Sustainability. “We developed a comprehensive search tool that combines multiple product attributes to streamline the selection process for architects and designers and will transform the way certification data is transferred into BIM project designs.”
