The course of lectures focuses on energetic evaluation and international certification methods in terms of sustainable building – such as LEED, BREEAM and DGNB – which are compared regarding the different approaches to ecological, economic, and social criteria. Also, the course of lectures will briefly address life cycle assessment and environmental performance of products, drawing on the process of life cycle assessment (target definition, inventory analysis and impact assessment) and by placing the LCA in the context of a building’s life cycle. The certification process for sustainable building will be demonstrated by way of an example: Based on a specific example and selected criteria, the students will follow up the certification process and evaluate the results of different approaches.

Lecturer: Klaus Marfels, Reinhard Wimmer
