On February 2, 2009 MADCAD announced the launch of its Beta eLibrary v3.0, an online resource for information to building codes and standards. The Beta eLibrary v3.0 has an advanced platform for code research, and thanks to a newly designed interface, a unique search technology that incorporated feedback from current customers, such as design firms HOK, HDR and KPF.
“The amount of information in the construction industry — codes, standards, local amendments and product specifications — is enormous and growing everyday. It is overwhelming for architects and engineers to attempt to find relevant information within this massive data while staying up-to-date with the evolving knowledge base.” said Pelin Atasoy, CEO of MADCAD.
This new technology brings together more than 7,000 code books and standards from ASHRAE, ASTM, ICC and NFPA, allowing users to simultaneously search among selected books. Search results are displayed within an interactive interface in which users can dynamically change search criteria, bringing substantial efficiency to code research.
