Building Material Scout – The Company
Drees & Sommer
Competent, successful for our customers, and independent of third parties! Whether building construction or infrastructure measures, project management, real estate consulting or engineering: Some 3,200 employees at 41 international regional and representative offices dedicate themselves to ensuring our customers’ success. For more than 45 years, Drees & Sommer has adopted a consistent approach. It is called ‘the blue way’. Economically viable, but also as sustainable as possible. Drees & Sommer and Hamburg-based EPEA Internationale Umweltforschung (Environmental Research) are jointly committed to the Cradle to Cradle® principle in the construction industry, bringing principals, investors, architects and manufacturers together to promote the approach. www.dreso.com
HOINKA is a company that specializes in proving services on all aspects of sustainable construction (Green Building). As an experienced DGNB auditor, LEED AP and BREEAM assessor, HOINKA carries out Green Building Certification. In addition to developing innovative building concepts, HOINKA offers web-based software tools and construction product databases. With the construction industry undergoing digitization and the trend towards the use of sustainable materials, our goal is to create planning certainty for principals, architects, planners and construction companies. Our mission is to prepare the way and ease our customers’ workload. www.hoinka.com
A confusing variety of product labels, building certificates and material declarations makes it almost impossible for principals and planners to maintain an overview. Manufacturers, on the other hand, are constantly faced with requests for certificates and declarations. More recently, searches for product-related BIM buildings and environmental audit data have been added, resulting in a further increase in complexity.
Our vision is for Building Material Scout to provide all players involved in construction projects – financiers, principals, project developers, architects, planners, builders, and operators – with easy access to healthy, intelligent and sustainable materials and products. We are convinced that this will make a significant contribution to improving the quality of the products.
Building Material Scout evaluates and organize material-related information, making it easier to find suitable materials and products. Predefined and customizable search filters allow users to select the right materials – for example for a Green Building certification. Building Material Scout enables future-oriented design, construction and operation – not least by consolidating all required information in one place.
