Building Product Innovation Council

Building Products Innovation Council (BPIC)

The Building Products Innovation Council (BPIC) is Australia's peak body representing the building material sector and is focused on presenting a unified and coordinated approach to the rapid pace and expanding scope of regulatory change impacting on the Australian building industry.

BPIC has successfully completed a three-year project, in partnership with the Federal Government, to provide "Australian" lifecycle inventory data of building materials to assist lifecycle practitioners, architects, designers, engineers, builders, developers and regulators to more accurately assess the impact buildings will have on the environment. The database is publicly available in Australia and includes information for over 100 major generic building products from various building supply industries.

This initiative will also significantly assist Australian building materials companies to develop more environmentally sustainable and internationally competitive products through innovation based on accurate information.
