The building industry has responded in many ways to COVID-19. We’ve compiled information – and it continues to grow.

Posted By Christine Cube, Wednesday, April 15, 2020


The global pandemic has changed much of how we live, work, and operate.

So, the National Institute of Building Sciences has developed a resource for those looking for recent developments, financial assistance information, webinars and events, continuing education, and other impacts of the coronavirus on the building sector.

The Building Industry COVID-19 Resource Hub lives on the Whole Building Design Guide site, and it regularly is updated as new information becomes available. It is personally curated by our team.

Why the Whole Building Design Guide?COVID-19 HUB

WBDG is the largest repository of building information.

It’s our comprehensive, web-based portal to a range of federal- and private-sector building-related guidance criteria and technology. It links information across professional disciplines to encourage integrated thinking and “whole building” performance.

WBDG also features a library of more than 12,000 design criteria, construction documents, and executable programs from federal and private organizations.
