General Construction & Buildings

Guideline for Sustainable Building (2013)

Sustainable building endeavours to minimise the use of energy and resources, and to keep the burden on the ecosystem to a minimum, during all phases of the life cycle of a building - from planning and construction, to the use and modernisation, through to demolition. This guideline contains the directive for federal buildings, with recommendations for other publicly-owned above-ground constructions, which should serve as a model for the private economy.
