The city of the future- Sustainable urban development as an important success factor
Living and working together in 2050: Sustainable urban development as an important success factor.
New urban districts
This scheme also complies with the basic DGNB philosophy and takes the following fields into account: Environmental Quality, Economic Quality, Sociocultural and Functional Quality, Technical Quality, and Process Quality. Site Quality is integrated here as a criterion for assessment. And of course, great emphasis was placed on practicality in the certification of urban districts.
In its all-encompassing scope, the new scheme covers all of the relevant issues in sustainable building: from a district’s structure to the proportion of open spaces, occupancy flexibility, sustainable mobility, and questions of maintenance, management, and cleaning. A life cycle assessment is also conducted for city districts as is done in the assessment system for buildings.
The assessment focuses on the areas between buildings in a district, such as sidewalks, bike lanes, roads, and green spaces. In addition, overriding concepts are also taken into consideration, for instance for energy, water, and waste.
