DGNB criteria "Access to amenities"


Our objective is to optimally cater to the day-to-day needs of the building users through the provision of easily accessible social and commercial infrastructure in the vicinity, thereby achieving social acceptance for the building. We also seek to ensure that the building is integrated into its urban context by opening up a wide range of uses to the public.


The building users' satisfaction with the site can be increased by ensuring that there are facilities nearby that cater to their day-to-day requirements. Districts become more lively when their pavements and cycle paths are used. This also has the effect of reducing the use of motorised transportation and the associated noise pollution and harmful emissions. Furthermore, the value retention of buildings within lively districts is greater.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Social infrastructure

  2. Commercial infrastructure

  3. Infrastructure associated with the building / variety of uses
