The WBDG is the only web-based portal providing government and industry practitioners with one-stop access to up-to-date information on a wide range of building-related guidance, criteria and technology from a 'whole buildings' perspective. Currently organized into four major categories—Design Recommendations, Project Management / Operations & Maintenance, Federal Facility Criteria and Continuing Education—at the heart of the WBDG are Resource Pages, reductive summaries on particular topics.
Development of the WBDG is a collaborative effort among federal agencies, private sector companies, non-profit organizations and educational institutions. Its success depends on industry and government experts contributing their knowledge and experience to better serve the building community.
The WBDG web site is offered as an assistance to the building community by the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) through funding support from the Department of Defense, the NAVFAC Engineering Innovation and Criteria Office, the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Air Force, the Department of Veterans Affairs, and the Department of Energy, the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of State Bureau of Overseas Buildings Operations (OBO). The WBDG Advisory Workgroup, consisting of representatives from over 15 participating federal agencies guide the development of the WBDG.
