DGNB criteria "Commercial viability"


Our objective is to create buildings with maximum user acceptance and long-term market potential.


Unused buildings constitute a misallocation of financial resources. A building that stands empty (in the medium or long term) is not sustainable. In order to achieve good commercial viability, a property must maintain or even increase its value, making it substantially easier to position it on the market.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Entrance situation, routing and signposting

  2. Parking space situation

  3. Market characteristics

  4. Degree of utilisation / units let at the time of completion
