Building material ecology

 

Building materials have an impact on the room climate, on air quality and on the spatial effect. In addition, the building material has a life-cycle impact in the world of work (manufacturing and processing) and on the environment (in production, distribution, installation, use and disposal). Last but not least, the design of a building object has to be oriented towards the possibilities of building materials. Ecological evaluation means to find the best possible solutions under given technical and economic conditions, taking into account as many of these effects as possible.
