DGNB criteria "Quality assurance of the construction"


Our objective is to ensure that the requirements with regard to sustainability aspects from the planning stage are appropriately implemented through informative quality assurance processes during the construction phase and, based on this, provide documentation that these requirements have actually been fulfilled.


If the quality of the building can be verified by means of appropriate investigations, this plays a key role in ensuring that the building can be used sustainably and for a long time to come. This provides the building owner with informative documentation on the quality of the commissioned work, and the user can be informed appropriately.
