Revolutionizing Design: SAB Center’s American Hardwoods Database

In the pursuit of innovation and sustainability, the SAB Center is taking a giant leap forward by developing a comprehensive database dedicated to American hardwoods architectural products. This ambitious project is set to redefine the landscape of architectural design, offering a wealth of information and resources for architects, designers, and engineers.

What Sets Our Database Apart:

  1. Sourcing from Trusted Sawmills:
    • The heart of our database lies in the meticulous curation of sawmills that share our commitment to quality and sustainability. We partner exclusively with select sawmills, ensuring that the hardwoods stocked meet our stringent structural requirements.
  2. Structural Modules and Kits:
    • Collaborating with forward-thinking companies, we compile a list of partners who specialize in creating structural modules and kits. These modules are designed in compliance with SAB Center innovations, promising efficiency, and adherence to the highest standards.
  3. Architectural Design Plugins:
    • Architects, designers, and engineers often face the challenge of aligning their projects with the latest innovations. Our database provides a curated selection of plugins, specifically tailored to assist in the design process. These plugins integrate seamlessly with popular design tools, facilitating the incorporation of SAB Center principles.
  4. ISO 26000 Social Responsibility Impact:
    • One of the cornerstones of our initiative is the integration of ISO 26000 social responsibility principles. Our database not only streamlines the design process but also allows professionals to evaluate the social impact of their creations. It’s a revolutionary approach that goes beyond aesthetics and functionality, emphasizing ethical and responsible design.

How It Works:

  1. Sawmills Partnership:
    • Sawmills partnering with the SAB Center are rigorously vetted to ensure they meet our sustainability and quality standards. The database compiles their names, making it a go-to resource for architects seeking responsibly sourced American hardwoods.
  2. Structural Modules and Kits Collaboration:
    • Companies collaborating with us to create structural modules and kits find a place in our database. This ensures architects have access to pre-engineered solutions that align seamlessly with the SAB Center’s vision.
  3. Architectural Design Plugins Integration:
    • Plugins vetted by the SAB Center are integrated into the database, offering architects and designers tools that simplify the design process while adhering to our innovative principles.
  4. ISO 26000 Evaluation:
    • As a pioneering feature, our database allows professionals to assess the social responsibility impact of their designs. This step empowers architects to make informed choices that contribute positively to the community and the environment.

Join the Revolution:

Architects, designers, and engineers looking to revolutionize their design process and make a meaningful impact are invited to join our database. The SAB Center’s American Hardwoods Database isn’t just a compilation of names – it’s a gateway to a new era of responsible, innovative, and sustainable architectural design. Together, let’s shape a future where design is a force for positive change.
