DGNB criteria "Use and integration of building technology"


Our objective is to create a building concept plan with the best possible use of passive systems and incorporation of renewable energy sources for the required technical systems. In addition, the concept plan intends to ensure that the building can be adjusted to suit changing conditions of use or technical developments with the lowest possible effort, and that the technical systems used are integrated into the district.


Reduced use of technical systems in the building can result in a reduction of faults during building operation. The use of resilient building technology and renewable energy sources reduces the risk of increased costs and external dependencies, and is generally engineered towards long-term durability.

Indicators for evaluation

  1. Passive systems

  2. Adaptability of the distribution system to suit operating temperatures to enable the use of renewable energy

  3. Accessibility of the building technology

  4. Integrated systems
