Spot The newest web-based product sustainability information tool for BIM

UL just launched SPOT, a web-based product sustainability information tool that will simplify the process for choosing credible green products and facilitate the design community for using that information into the Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow. Presently, there are over 40,000 products and SPOT database will provide huge benefits to the architects, designers and specifiers to recognize products through sustainable attributes, MasterFormat product codes and building rating system credits like LEED v4 and the WELL Building Standard. The app version of Spot is also available in the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Besides, UL is going to create an add-in that will allow AutoDesk Revit users to obtain product data from SPOT and allocate it directly to their project. This will provide exceptional perceptibility into authentic green product information, allowing superior precision in green building reporting and certification to regional, national and international building standards.

Spot integrates various product attributes to make the selection method simpler for architects and designers, and will change the way certification data is transmitted into BIM project designs.
