SEEtheSKills Materials Catalogue database supplies economic and environmental information
regarding construction elements used in Efficient Energy actions in the construction market.
This database is being originated not only as a pre-selection of energy efficient materials, based
on the ITeC BEDEC database (with more than 900,000 Construction items and 40 years of
history) but also based on Sustainable materials website of ITeC, and different Construction
databases and Companies Catalogues databases relevant in the Construction sector in each
Consortium partners countries.
… before construction starts
- To always obtain construction materials
reliable information from linked
Construction original databases.
- Since every construction element has
price, and in some of the original
Construction databases like BEDEC it is
updated every year according to the
evolution of the market, the database is
a powerful tool for calculating accurate
budgets and checking the cost of EE
alternative design options.
- Since each construction element has
data on CO2 emissions and embedded
energy it is possible to measure the
environmental impact of the project,
check different design options and size
up sustainability certification.
- To identify the best solutions to apply in
the construction sector in terms of
Efficient Energy thanks to the relevant
information related to EE materials,
carrying out intelligent searches for
efficient materials through the filtering
system, making possible compare them
in order to detect which materials are
more efficient in terms of energy
consumption and carbon emissions and
… during the construction process
- Taking the cost side of the project
database as a starting point, it is much
easier for the quantity surveyor to keep
track of the budget.
- Controlling carbon emissions and energy
cost on construction process where the
construction elements are.
… after construction project
- v Taking the database of the finished
construction object as a starting point, it
is much easier for the facility manager to
draw maintenance and repair plans.
