The symposium provided an overview and orientation in respect of current and future developments in ‘healthy building’, in the context of sustainable building. The performance of various building labels was examined from different perspectives. Amongst other things, the European DGNB label for sustainable building and its introduction in Switzerland were described, and considered in the context of the Swiss construction sector.
The relevance of various building labels now and in future were demonstrated using experiences of implementation in specific properties. The lecture by Bob Gysin of BGP Architekten described his own experiences with the HafenCity Project in Hamburg.
