Portico (USA)

Building Materials Analysis and Decision-Making Tool

Portico is an online tool used for the selection and specification of healthy products and materials for the built environment. The web service integrates healthy materials evaluation and project management-related functionalities with an extensive product database. Owned by Healthy Building Network, Portico was created in partnership with Google Real Estate and Workplace Services (REWS) team. Portico leverages a 40,000+ Chemical and Material Library (from HBN’s Pharos Project) for health and environmental hazard screening, assessment and certification information. One of its key features is to screen and evaluate the healthfulness of selected building products through a built-in request-for-information process with manufacturers.
