Its online architectural toolbox is a collection of utilities and information assembled to support Division 7 and Division 9 architects as they specify and select the company’s products. The toolbox ensures quick access for all design professionals to many interactive tools, including the Georgia-Pacific Design Studio, a LEED calculator, online binders and more.
The architectural toolbox provides easy access to the Georgia-Pacific Design Studio, which can help increase an architect’s expertise in the world of building information modeling. The Design Studio is an easy-to-use resource for creating wall assemblies, which can then be exported to AutoDesk Revit Architecture and other two- and three-dimensional modeling software.
Another tool available to architects is the Georgia-Pacific Gypsum LEED Calculator, which provides immediate access to concise information about a product's potential LEED credit contribution. This includes specific data regarding recycled content and regional materials.
Other toolbox tools now available are:
- Online Binders: Access an architectural binder and commercial roofing binder to provide a collection of specifications, case studies and working documents.
- Residential Wall Systems Comparison: Compare 11 to 14 recommended pre-configured wall systems in five climate zones to select Good, Better and Best systems. These designations are based on fundamental performance characteristics using different claddings, insulations and interior membranes.
- Other Design Professional Tools: Link from the Georgia-Pacific Gypsum home page to BSD Speclink Software, ARCOM, Reed Construction Data SMARTBim and Sweets Network.
- Social Media: Connect to the company’s Flickr and YouTube pages for access to helpful images and videos including useful application information, ASTM test results, job site footage, educational information and more.
