Documentation Workshop #03

Project Manager: Simon Kimmel

Concept: Daniel Dieren, Raoul Bunschoten

Planning and implementation:

Tunca Beril Basaran, Johannes Reinders, Annika Feldhaus, Victor Neumeister In order to promote the use of sustainable construction methods in competition and early project initiation, methods for evaluating building construction are becoming increasingly important.

The growing requirements of the EU taxonomy, the EU Building Directive and sustainability reporting (LEVELS), as well as at the national level through the further development of the GEG and BEG, inevitably lead to an early assessment or accounting of planned properties. New assessment approaches to the sustainability of building constructions must meet both the ecological requirements for decarbonizing the building sector and ensure economic feasibility. The framework conditions for sustainable construction will continue to tighten in the future, which can ultimately open up opportunities for timber construction.

Life cycle analysis or life cycle assessment (LCA) is now an established method that makes it possible to calculate and compare the environmental impacts of building structures based on empirically determined data. However, since this method requires additional effort and information about the design and component structures must already be available for the evaluation, simplified evaluation mechanisms are required. We ask ourselves how we can evaluate our buildings as early as possible, with an acceptable amount of work and with sufficient accuracy in terms of their sustainability aspects.

For the evaluation of constructions within the framework of concept awarding, an approach based on a point-scoring procedure was developed by Chora and Fraunhofer IPK in collaboration with Tegel Projekt GmbH. The aim of this development was to create incentives for increased use of wooden construction methods. The evaluation matrix is viewed as an intermediate step in the definition of a general procedure for design evaluation in competition. It will be further developed in the future in order to evaluate it even more precisely.
