Building for environmental and economic sustainability (BEES) software

The BEES software brings to your fingertips a powerful technique for selecting cost-effective, environmentally-preferable building products. Developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Building and Fire Research Laboratory with support from the US EPA Environmentally Preferable Purchasing program, the tool is based on consensus standards and designed to be practical, flexible, and transparent. Version 3.0 of the Windows-based decision support software, aimed at designers, builders, and product manufacturers, includes actual environmental and economic performance data for nearly 200 building products.
