DGNB criteria "Construction site / construction process"


Our objective is to minimise negative impacts on the local environment during the construction phase. In order to achieve this, the contractors at the construction sites must be made aware of the relevant environmental issues and receive training in this area.


Trained staff generally applies its knowledge to the everyday work and are also able to use this knowledge in the future to reduce the environmental impact of construction sites for other projects.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Low-noise construction site

  2. Low-dust construction site

  3. Soil and groundwater protection on the construction site

  4. Low-waste construction site
