Building Information Knowledgebase (BRIKbase)

Just a quick post here to point people to a resource we just recently became aware of called the “Building Information Knowledgebase (BRIKbase)”.  From their “About” page:

A collaborative effort of the American Institute of Architects and the National Institute of Building Sciences, the Building Research Information Knowledgebase (BRIK) is an interactive portal offering online access to peer-reviewed research projects and case studies in all facets of building, from predesign, design, and construction through occupancy and reuse.

BRIK offers a user-friendly approach to those involved in creating the built environment–from researchers to clients to builders to designers to occupants–to help them find the building research, information, and knowledge they need to design, build, own, and operate high-performance buildings.

BRIK presents reseach programs and products in three, clearly defined and identified levels:

  • Partners’ research will be vetted under a Memorandum of Agreement with partnering non-profit associations, educational institutions, national labs, and government agencies;

  • Contributors’ research provided by firms and companies will be reviewed before posting; and

  • Individuals may submit research that will be reviewed before posting.
