DGNB criteria "Documentation for sustainable management"


Our objective is to ideally operate the building as soon as it is complete, and to ensure that the building's planned performance is attained in reality, with as little deviation as possible from the plans. In order to achieve this, all the relevant information must be provided to the owner, tenant and facility manager in a clear and organised format.


Having all the relevant information available is key to ensuring that the building can be operated efficiently. This allows the operation of the building to be planned, and any particular issue to be dealt with, at an early stage.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Maintenance, inspection, operating, and care instructions

  2. Up-to-date plans

  3. Facility management manual

  4. Planning with BIM
