Avitru, UL announce partnership for access to sustainability database
According to a press release, Avitru, the developer of AIA MasterSpec, announced a partnership with UL, the developer of UL SPOT, to collaborate and develop a sustainable product database that will enable MasterSpec users to access product sustainability data from UL SPOT.
UL is a household name that is also heavily relied on by architects, engineers, contractors and owners (AECO) to provide third-party safety certifications, product performance evaluations and product testing and certifications for sustainable attributes. Architects and designers rely on SPOT, UL's sustainable product database with more than 55,000 product families, to find products that meet green building and purchasing requirements in an easy, searchable tool.
"UL and MasterSpec are two of the most trusted names in the architecture, engineering, construction and owner markets," said Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager of UL. "UL SPOT was developed to provide a place where designers can find, research and select products for their designs, with a focus on sustainability and a unique user experience and we are excited that our partnership with Avitru will provide more users with increased access to sustainable product data through SPOT."
