Green building = sustainable building
Sustainable building: what is behind the term, which is also referred to as »Green Building«?
A building will then be considered a »Green Building«, when it is characterized in multiple aspects by an outstanding quality. These evaluation categories include the economic quality, ecological quality, the site quality – so the location and process quality, the technical quality, the sociocultural and functional quality, as well as their impact on the user or the resident who is in the key focus of this assessment.
These are quality categories, in which sustainability can be measured. This occurs based on concrete facts and figures, which are specified by organizations such as the society for sustainable building. They evaluate the entire operating life cycle of a building – from the project development, implementation, to the operation, and all the way up to the possible demolition. The goal: The reduction of the harmful effects on the health and the environment through the construction work itself. The implementation follows the principle of resource efficiency in the areas of energy, water and materials.
