Abstract

Sustainable construction as such is not additional factor in building decision making, but an essential part of the prices which should reflect scarcity of the resources. It should not only be focused on avoiding pollution and use of exhaustible recourses in (new) construction and demolition. Important is minimised environmental effects as an annual average over the life span of the technical solution. This needs annual cost calculation and proper (functional) demand period definition. Technical life span has to be reduced or lengthened by using the flexibility principles of open building. Analysis of the primary process in terms of performances and demand period should be the starting point of decision making.
