Georgia-Pacific Gypsum – as part of a broader revamping of its website, GPGypsum.com – has added a number of online features designed with architects and other design professionals, sub-contractors and distributors in mind.
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 Georgia-Pacific Gypsum products. The toolbox ensures quick access for all design professionals to many interactive tools, including the Georgia-Pacific Design Studio <http://gpdesignstudio.com/> , a LEED® calculator, online binders and more.
“Georgia-Pacific Gypsum understands that in the current building market, architects are busier than ever, and the new GPGypsum.com is a convenient, organized way for architects to get the information they need at a moment’s notice,” said Mike Clay, vice president, Georgia-Pacific Gypsum. “We are committed to being a resource for architects, as well as distributors and contractors – the new website reflects our ongoing dedication to our customers.”
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 Georgia-Pacific 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.
