Sustainable Building Certifications
Green quality of buildings
DGNB stands for 'Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltiges Bauen' (in English the German Sustainable Building Council) and is the German sustainability certification for buildings.
The DGNB provides an objective description and assessment of the sustainability of buildings and urban districts. The DGNB is the undisputed market leader and is regarded worldwide as the most ambitious system in terms of content.
Tailor made sustainable buildings
Due to its flexibility the DGNB Certification System can be tailored precisely to various uses of buildings and even to meet country-specific requirements. The DGNB Certification System covers all of the key aspects of sustainable building: environmental, economic, sociocultural and functional aspects, technology, processes and site. If a performance requirement is met, the DGNB awards the DGNB certificate in silver, gold or platinum.
Calculate on decisions
The DGNB scheme gives the construction industry a common groundwork for sustainable building. The criteria in the scheme follows a fixed point score. In this way, it is possible to calculate how different decisions and choice of materials before and during the construction process impact on the final certification. The assessments are always based on the entire life cycle of a building.
How NOVENCO Building & Industry contributes to DGNB Certification?
A Danish leading engineering, design and consultancy company, Rambøll, has produced reports and associated documentation packages that make it easy for DGNB auditors to assess the specific contribution of NOVENCO's products to the various DGNB criteria. As a conclusion of the documentation package, NOVENCO's highly efficient and energy-saving products contribute positively to DGNB certification of buildings and can have a positive impact on the points, which may account for up to 39.1 % of the total certification.
It is not NOVENCO's products alone that ensure the 39.1% of the percentage points, but the percentages describe the criteria by which NOVENCO's products can contribute positively to the point allocation in a particular project.
