DGNB - New public assempbly buildings (museums included)

The scheme for public assembly buildings is available for various use types: congress centers, trade fair centers or civic centres, museums, theatres and music halls, libraries and terminals.

The scheme places a particular emphasis on optimum flexibility. For example, it evaluates the clear access for the vertical circulation such as for major exhibition items, as well as the individual control of HVAC systems for conference rooms.

AIA Deconstructs Green-Building Standards| News | Architectural Record

While officially neutral on green-building rating systems, the American Institute of Architects (AIA) recently parsed three of them in an effort to evaluate how well they align with the association’s sustainability goals. In its report, which was released in May, it carefully avoided picking a favorite of the three systems: t he U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED NC 2.2, the Green Building Initiative’s Green Globes, and The International Initiative for a Sustainable Environment’s SBTool 07...
