DGNB criteria "Safety and security"


Our objective is to devise a design concept that prevents dangerous situations in buildings and their immediate vicinity as much as possible.


A high sense of security makes a vital contribution to people´s comfort. By contrast, uncertainty and anxiety restrict freedom of movement. Measures which increase the sense of security also generally help with reducing the possibility of being assaulted.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Subjective perception of safety and protection against assault
