DGNB criteria sociocultural and functional quality

DGNB criteria "Design for all" (SOC2.1)

Objective

Our objective is to make the entire environment we build around ourselves accessible to everyone and without restrictions on its use, whatever their personal situation.

Benefits

If the principles of barrier-free building have already been incorporated when planning the building work, irrespective of whether there are currently people with disabilities or impairments using the building, this foresight will largely eliminate any costs that adapting the building would require, as well as the complication of the work that these modifications would involve. Barrier-free design makes buildings more attractive to all user groups, especially to people with impaired motor skills, sensory impairments and cognitive impairments. With the current change in demographics, people's differences should be celebrated as something that opens up possibilities.
