It is the latest enhancement to the free online Georgia-Pacific Gypsum Tool Box, which gives architects, contractors, building owners and facility managers the tools and information needed to make decisions and increase efficiency throughout design and construction. Visitors may access the Assemblies Library at www.gp.com/toolbox.
