Whole Building Design Guide: Accessible

"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 three major categories; Design Guidance, Project Management and Operations & Maintenance at the heart of the WBDG are Resource Pages, reductive summaries on particular topics." Their accessibility page delineates a comprehensive history of accessible building design with links, relevant codes & standards, and major resources. "Information in these Accessible pages must be considered together with other design objectives and within a total project context in order to achieve quality, high performance buildings."

"We cannot afford to let the issue of disabilities be simply an afterthought. We have a unique opportunity now, as industry pours billions of dollars into upgrading the communications infrastructure, to make sure that people with disabilities are not left behind. Now is the time. Accessibility of services and products for all Americans has got to be a design feature, not an add-on."

Chairman Kennard, Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Statement on Video Description, 11/18/99
