HOW TO PARTICIPATE

TELL YOUR TRANSPARENCY STORY

mM manufacturers recognize the value and importance of transparency and disclosure and have committed to transforming the materials marketplace. Join the growing list of manufacturers making an impact on the future of our industry!

Get started

Join now to submit your products to the mindful MATERIALS library.   Input an abundance of company & product data, images, catalogues, spec document and BIM drawings AND sustainability information into your account.  

Showcasing products in the mindful MATERIALS digital Library is facilitated by GIGA’s Material Hub, Origin and a team of industry product reviewers.  Manufacturers manage all product information directly in a free Origin account, connect to or upload relevant integrated certification and disclosure documents for each product, then submit for review and admission to the Library.

When you connect your products to integrated certification data within Origin this minimizes your data management, allowing the most accurate certification data to be updated directly from the source and not by you!

Getting started is easy

Sign-up for a free account and input company & product data include images, catalogs, spec documents, BIM drawings AND sustainability information into your account.

The mindful MATERIALS review process

A key individual at your company will be responsible for uploading your mindful MATERIALS product information to create your company’s database within the Library. The Collaborative will then review the information for accuracy before it is made publicly available. As new products or data are released or revisions are required, manufacturers make updates directly through the Origin account. This assures designers are accessing the most current information. Your sales team will be able to access this database for labeling in design firm libraries.

Along the way, the mindful MATERIALS administration team will be available to answer questions. You’ll also have the opportunity to inform the ongoing evolution of mindful MATERIALS by participating in our community dialogues.

DATA EXCHANGE

The mindful MATERIALS Library, is powered by Origin.  The origin Material Hub facilitates data exchange. Your product information can be shared across various platforms with data management in a single account.  With a free Origin account, manufacturers reserve the right to publish, unpublish and opt-out of any data sharing. Advanced Origin paid accounts provide manufacturers with greater options for data sharing across international specification and product sourcing platforms.

THE LIBRARY

The mindful MATERIALS Library, powered by Origin, is a searchable database where users can find architectural building products that have various transparency and sustainability attributes. Users can access specific product data from all participating manufacturers in the mM Library.


mM LABEL

The Transparency Label – a simple 1 x 4 inch sticker - translates key transparency and optimization information from the database where architecture and design firms can place it directly on product binders in resource libraries, making easy to identify products with disclosed or optimized content. As the database is updated, local reps update product labels during regular visits.


BUILDINGGREEN

mindful MATERIALS is honored to have BuildingGreen as its technical advisory partner. Their industry leading knowledge and research helps ensure that mM content is the best available.
