Building and Design Resources, Inc. is a team of material resource specialists serving architects, interior designers, primarily in the Northeast, as well as manufacturers and others in the building industry. We provide essential information services to help you work efficiently and to help keep you informed about new materials and new technologies and other resources relevant to your work. We do this both through our professional services and through a variety of web resources.
Our online directories for materials, product representatives, consultants and useful weblinks (codes, standards, etc) are well maintained. We make changes to the Materials Database, and the Representative Directory daily.
As manufacturers continue to improve their products to be able to contribute to the various sustainability programs-LEED, WELL, Living Building Challenge, etc.-our Materials Database allows you to search by specific sustainability attributes to help you identify manufacturers to consider for specific applications.
Database Woes UpdateJuly 24, 2019 We'v at last been able to re-instate the linkages between the Materials Database and the Representative Directory, but we did lose many of the edits we had made after June 30. We'll catch up as we come across them.
ComingThis Discussion forum is a place for our website users to post questions about building materials. You might be looking for a reliable alternative to a building or finish material that you are having problems with, or may want to specify a material you have not specified before and would appreciate comments from others who have had experience with the material in question. It's a place to share our collective knowledge.
