SMET Supporting Architects & Specifiers
Environmental Product Declarations
We offer a comprehensive range of EPDs for a wide range of German-made building materials. Offering transparency through LCA, specifiers are in an informed position to reduce environmental impacts by calculating embodied carbon, eliminating toxic materials, and understanding the ‘Cradle to Grave’ impact of their chosen materials. Under the new nZEB building regulations, the carbon embodied in building materials will account for up to 50% of the total life cycle carbon emissions of the homes and buildings designed. By 2050 we need to reduce the carbon emissions from the construction and operation of buildings to zero including materials. SMET’s online EPD Platform published by the IGBC offers this comparative ability in decision-making.
NBS & BIM
SMET offers a comprehensive library of products for specification on SMET NBS Source and SMET BIM objects, created and hosted by the National BIM Library. Our SMET BIM objects are available for download in ArchiCAD, Bentley, IFC, Vectorworks, and Revit software formats under – SMET Bedding & Underlay, SMET Plasters & Renders, SMET Mortars & Grouts, Concrete, Adhesives, Admixtures & Additives categories. It’s reassuring to know all SMET BIM objects were among the first in the industry to meet the new NBS BIM Object Standards.
