The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) launched its online App Lab, a platform of third-party applications that are integrated with Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) data.

The lab includes eight applications, developed by LEED automation partners, and is designed for use with Internet browsers, tablets, smartphones and other devices, USGBC says.

Each app features a fully functional software tool that has been enhanced to provide projects teams and administrators integration with LEED Online and address the certification process, the organization says.

“The LEED App Lab has been highly anticipated as a way to leverage multiple partners to expand the presence of green building,” said Scot Horst, senior vice president, USGBC.

The apps available on the site represent initial LEED Automation Partners; additional apps will be added over time, USGBC says.
