While the Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG) Design Objective, Project Management, and O & M pages provide fundamental descriptions of each key aspect of whole building design and the interrelationships between these topics, they are unable to delve into the details of each strategy and supporting technologies. That task is accomplished by the WBDG Resource Pages which are written by industry experts explaining strategies, technologies, applications, standards, and emerging issues relevant to the subject along with links to related WBDG pages, external websites, publications, and points of contact.
