GBIG Gets an Update & New Search Tools

July 3, 2013

We just updated GBIG.org, our ongoing project with the U.S. Green Building Council that lets anyone explore green building data around the world. GBIG continues to grow quickly. Since its initial launch last November, the site’s database has added a number of new certification systems and awards including: Sustainable Sites Initiative (SITES), the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB), the 2013 AIA/COTE Top Ten Awards and LEED India.

For this update, we’ve optimized GBIG’s navigation by removing some clutter and encouraging people to browse new landing pages which will continue to evolve over the next few months. We’re also testing a new search box on the homepage that offers filters up front, so you can narrow your query to “buildings” or “places” before you hit the search button.
