The database for ecological building and renovation.

baubook is a database for building products. It simplifies ecological and healthy building and facilitates verification in the context of ecological tenders, building certifications and subsidy systems. baubook provides validated and structured building material data for the calculation of energy and ecological indicators.

The core of baubook is the product database. There, manufacturers declare their building products centrally, simply and conveniently. Since all baubook applications access the central database, there is no need for manufacturers to make further declarations. Test certificates for the building-physical and building-ecological characteristic values are stored centrally in this one place. After successfully passing baubook quality assurance, the declared products are listed in all target group-specific platforms. The export to the calculation programmes takes place via established interfaces.

The building products are declared in terms of ecological criteria, building physics and ecology parameters as well as other product group-dependent properties. The information is supplemented with a product description, pictures, safety data sheets and technical data sheets as well as manufacturer and, if applicable, dealer data.

The product declaration is made directly on the internet. When making the declaration, the manufacturer registers (online at any time, free of charge) and enters his products with the help of the online assistant. Once all relevant information has been entered, a summary is created, which is drawn up company-wise and sent to baubook with the corresponding test certificates.

The baubook prepares the declared data and makes it available via the target group-specific platforms and as basic data for the calculation of energy and building certificates. This significantly simplifies the processing of subsidised and certified buildings. Therefore, the baubook is used by architects, consultants, building owners and the executing building trade when realising energy-efficient and ecological buildings.
