GreenWizard, a web-based building material selection and management tool, has partnered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), creators of the LEED green building program and LEED Online. This partnership enables users of GreenWizard and their LEED Assessment tools to sync up data and information with LEED Online, the software platform that manages the LEED green building certification process.
“Using the LEED Automation API, GreenWizard is the first product management solution to integrate with LEED Online, and this integration is the first step toward a fully automated process (called LEED Automation) for obtaining LEED certification,” GreenWizard notes.
“USGBC surveyed the competitive landscape of LEED workflow solutions looking for the providers that could really accelerate acceptance of LEED Online, and GreenWizard is a standout in the sector,” said Mahesh Ramanujam, USGBC’s COO.
At the Toronto Greenbuild show (booth# 230 North), GreenWizard will offer live demonstrations of its first LEED Online integration tool. With GreenWizard’s capabilities, users can:
- Optimize LEED points by connecting GreenWizard LEED projects with their LEED Online projects in real-time;
- Review LEED Online project credit information side-by-side with their LEED Credit Checklist;
- Use GreenWizard's integrated LEED assessment tools to measure progress against the LEED Online project goals; and
- Update their LEED Online project credit Scorecard from their GreenWizard project.
"We have finally closed the loop for digital connectivity between LEED projects in GreenWizard and LEED Online," said Adam Bernholz, GreenWizard's founder and CEO. "The money and time savings that this paper-free capability brings to our users adds directly to their bottom line, to say nothing of the savings from reduced administrative tasks for LEED consultants. We're genuinely proud to be part of this solution."
