Quality Criterions of the AUSTRIAN GREEN PLANET BUILDING
The content requirements for the AUSTRIAN GREEN PLANET BUILDING correspond to the klimaaktiv quality criteria for construction and renovation. The national seal of approval with over 600 buildings already constructed in Austria also provides a very good basis for assessing the quality of a building internationally, especially if high standards of energy efficiency and climate protection are to be assessed and documented.
The requirements of the AUSTRIAN GREEN PLANET BUILDING in a short overview:
All criteria can be viewed in detail using the AGPB online tool. This online tool is also used for the verification and project review.
|Quality of infrastructure||Documentation of the infrastructure facilities in the catchment area, recommendation, but no minimum criterion|
|Economic Efficiency||Life cycle cost calculation, documentation, but no minimum criterion|
|Energy efficiency: heating demand, cooling demand, primary energy demand||Calculation according to passive house institute with PHPP with national factors; alternatively: dynamic building simulation. The basic criteria of klimaaktiv must be observed.|
|Renewable energy sources||CO2 emissions, calculation according to passive house institute with PHPP with national factors; alternatively: dynamic building simulation. The basic criteria of klimaaktiv must be observed.|
|Environmental protection / materials||Environmental efficiency of building materials with OI3 indicator, calculated using national method eco2soft|
|Exclusion of harmful substances (HFCs), avoidance of PVC||HFC-free insulating materials and / or as far as possible avoidance of PVC in windows, doors, foils, pipes, surfaces|
|Comfort - Thermal comfort||Thermal summer comfort, calculation with PHPP OR dynamic building simulation OR detection of external sun protection|
Upon completion of the building, quality assurance measures must also be documented and, in some areas, documented with measurements in the building.
|Quality of planning and construction||Quality assurance measures|
|Blower door test||Measurement by test laboratory|
|Energy consumption monitoring||Consumption measurement for electricity, heat; separated as possible according to consumers|
|Indoor air quality measurement||Formaldehyde, total VOC by testing laboratory; the measurement can be omitted if the local conditions require this|
|User manual in local language||Most important recommendations for dealing with particularly energy-efficient buildings. Important: short, concise, self-explanatory.|
|Supervised project support||The quality of the planning is ensured by the targeted consideration of the stated objectives and their proof throughout the entire planning and implementation project. For this purpose, corresponding specialists from quality assurance systems established in Austria (eg klimaaktiv, ÖGNB, ÖGNI) or with comparable qualification (eg authorized consultants, engineering offices) are consulted|
