Site security resources available on the WBDG

Site security design guidelines now part of the Whole Building Design Guide.



In collaboration with the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) , the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC) has recently contributed new Resource Pages on site security design to the Whole Building Design Guide (WBDG).

Effective Site Security Design, The Site Security Design Process, and Landscape Architecture and The Site Security Design Process explore GSA's evolving view of building site security and practical design applications for security measures. Drawing from GSA's recently published Site Security Design Guide, the pages are written from an interdisciplinary perspective and reflect the views of multiple experts and organizations.

Visitors to the Web pages are encouraged to share their own perspectives and feedback by leaving comments. The Resource Pages can be accessed for free from the WBDG.
