Sustainable Building Assessment System for Research- and Laboratory buildings - Austrian and Swiss Perspective on the BNB Applicability

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/Bericht/KonferenzbandBeitrag in einem KonferenzbandBegutachtung


Green Public Procurement (GPP) calls for the use of the public authorities purchasing power to foster environmentally friendly goods and services. As the building sector is a top priority in terms of maximizing energy efficiency, accounting for up to 40% of global and European energy consumption, the goal of the International Energy Agency (IEA) is to achieve an 80% reduction in global emissions by 2050.
Within the paper the applicability of GPP for the buildings’ design process is elaborated. The different stages in the procurement process for buildings are explained and the interdependencies of the complex process of design and construction of buildings and related sustainability performance are discussed.
On the base of two international case studies, the applicability of building sustainability assessment methods is briefly discussed. These methods ensure a holistic life cycle perspective within all phases of design and construction, which can easily be implemented in the procurement process. However only with the commitment from the purchaser as well as from involved design team the implementation of sustainable building projects is possible.
