Sustainability of construction works - Assessment of social performance of buildings - Calculation methodology

This European Standard is one part of a suite of European Standards. The standard provides the specific methods and requirements for the assessment of social performance of a building while taking into account the building’s functionality and technical characteristics.
This European Standard applies to all types of buildings, both new and existing. In this first version of the standard, the social dimension of sustainability concentrates on the assessment of aspects and impacts for the use stage of a building expressed using the following social performance categories (from EN 15643 3):
-   accessibility;
-   adaptability;
-   health and comfort;
-   impacts on the neighbourhood;
-   maintenance;
-   safety and security.
NOTE 1   Only impacts and aspects of the above social performance categories are deemed to have an agreed basis for European standardization at this time. Two of the social performance categories included in EN 15643–3 (sourcing of materials and services and stakeholder involvement) are not deemed to be ready for standardization at this time and will be considered for inclusion in future versions of this standard (see informative Annex C).
This standard does not set the rules for how building assessment schemes may provide valuation methods. Nor does it prescribe levels, classes or benchmarks of performance.
Valuation methods, levels, classes or benchmarks may be prescribed in the requirements for environmental, social and economic performance in the client’s brief, building regulations, national standards, national codes of practice, building assessment and certification schemes, etc.
NOTE 2   Where National building regulations give minimum requirements and reference to assessment methods on these aspects, the social performance determined by assessment according to this standard can be used to determine the degree to which the building goes beyond the regulatory/legal requirements.
The corporate social responsibility (CSR) of organizations is not covered by this standard.
The standard gives requirements for:
-   the description of the object of assessment;
-   the system boundary that applies at the building level;
-   the list of indicators and procedures for the application of these indicators;
-   the presentation of the results in reporting and communication;
-   the data necessary for the application of the standard, and
-   verification.

Nachhaltigkeit von Bauwerken - Bewertung der sozialen Qualität von Gebäuden - Berechnungsmethoden

Diese Europäische Norm ist Teil einer Europäischen Normenreihe. Die Norm stellt unter Berücksichtigung der Funktionalität und der technischen Merkmale eines Gebäudes spezielle Verfahren und Anforderungen für die Bewertung der sozialen Qualität eines Gebäudes zur Verfügung.
Diese Europäische Norm kann auf alle Arten von Gebäuden, sowohl neu gebaute als auch vorhandene, angewendet werden. In dieser Erstfassung der Norm konzentriert sich die soziale Dimension der Nach-haltigkeit auf die Bewertung von Aspekten und Auswirkungen während der Nutzungsphase eines Gebäudes, wobei die folgenden Kategorien der sozialen Qualität (nach EN 15643-3) verwendet werden:
-   Zugänglichkeit;
-   Anpassungsfähigkeit;
-   Gesundheit und Behaglichkeit;
-   Auswirkungen auf benachbarte Bereiche (Nachbarschaft);
-   Inspektion/ Wartung/ Reinigung/ Instandsetzung (Instandhaltung);
-   Sicherheit/Schutz.
ANMERKUNG 1   Nur Auswirkungen und Aspekte der vorstehend erwähnten Kategorien der sozialen Qualität gelten als Kategorien, die gegenwärtig über eine abgestimmte Grundlage für die europäische Normungsarbeit verfügen. Die beiden in EN 15643-3 aufgeführten Kategorien der sozialen Qualität (Materialbeschaffung und Dienstleistungen sowie Einbindung der Interessensgruppen) sind gegenwärtig noch nicht Gegenstand der Normungsarbeit, werden jedoch zum Zwecke der Aufnahme in zukünftige Versionen dieser Norm berücksichtigt (siehe informativen Anhang C).
Diese Norm regelt nicht, wie Bewertungsschemata für Gebäude Bewertungsverfahren bereitstellen können. Sie schreibt des Weiteren keine Gütestufen, Klassen oder Richtwerte für die Qualität vor.
Bewertungsmethoden, Ebenen, Klassen oder Richtwerte dürfen in den Anforderungen der umweltbezogenen, sozialen und ökonomischen Qualität, der Baubeschreibung des Auftraggebers, den Verordnungen zum Bauwesen, nationalen Normen, nationalen Verfahrensregeln, Gebäudebewertungen und Zertifizierungssystemen usw. vorgegeben werden.
ANMERKUNG 2   Wo nationale Bauvorschriften in Bezug auf diese Aspekte nur minimale Anforderungen und Verweise auf Bewertungsverfahren geben, kann die nach dieser Norm bewertete soziale Qualität genutzt werden, um den Grad zu bestimmen, zu dem das Gebäude behördliche/gesetzliche Anforderungen übertrifft.
Die soziale Verantwortung des Unternehmens (CSR, en: corporate social responsibility) wird in dieser Norm nicht behandelt.
Die Norm stellt Anforderungen für Folgendes bereit:
-   die Beschreibung des Bewertungsgegenstandes;
-   die Systemgrenze, die auf die Gebäudeebene anwendbar ist;
-   eine Auflistung der Indikatoren sowie Verfahren zur Anwendung dieser Indikatoren;
-   die Darstellung der Ergebnisse in der Berichterstattung und der Kommunikation;
-   die Daten, die zur Anwendung dieser Norm erforderlich sind, und
-   die Verifizierung.

Contribution des ouvrages de construction au développement durable - Évaluation de la performance sociale des bâtiments - Méthodes

La présente Norme européenne fait partie d'une série de Normes européennes. Elle fournit les méthodes et exigences spécifiques pour l’évaluation de la performance sociale des bâtiments, prenant en compte leur fonctionnalité et leurs caractéristiques techniques.
La présente Norme européenne s’applique à tous les types de bâtiments, à la fois neufs et existants. Dans cette première édition de la norme, la dimension sociale de la contribution des bâtiments au développement durable se limite à l’évaluation des aspects et impacts de la phase d’utilisation du bâtiment, et aux catégories de performance sociale suivantes (issues de l'EN 15643-3) :
-   accessibilité ;
-   adaptabilité ;
-   santé et confort ;
-   impacts sur le voisinage ;
-   maintenance ;
-   sécurité et sûreté.
NOTE 1   Seuls les impacts et aspects des catégories de performance sociale indiquées ci-dessus constituent une base consensuelle pour une normalisation européenne. Les deux autres catégories de performance sociale contenues dans l'EN 15643-3 (origine des matériaux et des services et implication des parties prenantes) ne sont pas considérées comme présentement prêtes pour normalisation et seront examinées pour une possible intégration dans les prochaines éditions de la présente norme (voir l'Annexe informative C).
La présente norme ne fixe aucune règle spécifiant la manière dont les processus d’évaluation des bâtiments peuvent fournir des méthodes de notation, de même qu’elle ne spécifie aucun niveau, aucune classe ou aucun référentiel de performances.
Les méthodes, niveaux, classes ou référentiels de notation peuvent être spécifiés dans les exigences relatives à la performance environnementale, sociale et économique contenues dans le programme du client, les règlements de construction, les normes nationales, les codes de bonne pratique nationaux, les systèmes d’évaluation et de certification des bâtiments, etc.
NOTE 2   Lorsque la réglementation nationale relative à la construction prescrit des exigences minimales et fait référence à des méthodes d’évaluation sur ces aspects, la performance sociale déterminée par évaluation conformément à la présente norme peut être utilisée pour déterminer le niveau jusqu'auquel le bâtiment excède les exigences minimales réglementaires/légales.
La responsabilité sociétale des entreprises (RSE) n'est pas couverte par la présente norme.
La norme prescrit des exigences concernant :
-   la description de l’objet de l’évaluation ;
-   la frontière du système qui s’applique au niveau du bâtiment ;
-   la liste des indicateurs et les procédures d’application de ces indicateurs ;
-   la présentation des résultats sous forme de rapport et leur communication ;
-   les données nécessaires à l'application de la norme ; et
-   le procédé de vérification.

EN 16309:2014 (E) 5 Introduction The purpose of this European Standard is to provide rules for the assessment of the social performance of new and existing buildings. The social performance of a building is one aspect of the building's sustainability. The environmental performance and economic performance of a building are the other aspects of sustainability that should be assessed as part of a sustainability assessment of the building. Figure 1 illustrates how the assessment of the social performance fits within the concept of the sustainability assessment of a building.

Figure 1 — Concept of sustainability assessment of buildings This European Standard is intended to support the decision making process and documentation of the assessment of the social performance of a building. In this European Standard, the method of assessment of the social performance of a building is based on a life cycle approach. The general requirements for sustainability assessment of buildings are described in EN 15643-1 (the General Framework standard). The framework for the assessment of social performance is given in EN 15643-3. Figure 2 shows other standards developed by CEN/TC 350 in this area, and also how they are related to this standard. The assessment of social performance differs from the assessment of economic and ecological aspects in that it requires both quantitative and descriptive approaches. Where methods leading to a quantitative result are not available for assessment criteria and indicators, a checklist-approach is adopted to make the descriptive approach quantifiable.

The corporate social responsibility (CSR) of organizations is not covered by this standard. The standard gives requirements for: — the description of the object of assessment; — the system boundary that applies at the building level; — the list of indicators and procedures for the application of these indicators; — the presentation of the results in reporting and communication; — the data necessary for the application of the standard, and — verification.
