Sustainability of Construction Works - Assessment of Buildings - Part 3: Framework for the assessment of social performance

This European Standard provides the specific principles and requirements, expressed through a suite of standards, for the assessment of social performance of buildings, taking into account the technical characteristics and functionality of the construction works being assessed. The assessment will quantify the contribution, in social terms, of the assessed construction works to sustainable construction and sustainable development. .
NOTE 1   Assessment of social performance is one aspect of sustainability assessment of buildings under the general framework of prEN 15643-1.
The framework applies to all types of buildings, both new and existing, and it is relevant for the assessment of the social performance of new buildings over the use stage of the life cycle, and of existing buildings over their remaining service life.
NOTE 2   Future revisions of this standard may include the assessment of social performance for other stages of the building life cycle.
The social dimension of sustainability concentrates, in this first generation of standards, on the assessment of impacts of a building related to its occupants and other users expressed with the quantifiable indicators. The social performance measures will be represented through indicators for:
-   Health and Comfort;
-   Accessibility;
-   Maintenance;
-   Safety / Security;
-   Loadings on the neighbourhood.
Construction and deconstruction stages of the building life cycle including health and safety aspects related to construction workers are not part of the first generation of standards.
The standards developed under this framework do not set the rules for how the different assessment methodologies may provide valuation methods, and nor do they prescribe levels, classes or benchmarks for measuring performance.

Nachhaltigkeit von Bauwerken - Bewertung der Nachhaltigkeit von Gebäuden - Teil 3: Rahmenbedingungen für die Bewertung der sozialen Qualität

Diese Europäische Norm enthält – in Form einer Normenreihe – die spezifischen Grundsätze und An-forderungen an die Bewertung der sozialen Qualität von Gebäuden unter Berücksichtigung der technischen Eigenschaften und Funktionalität der zu bewertenden Bauwerke. Mit der Nachhaltigkeitsbewertung wird der Beitrag gemessen, den die bewerteten Bauwerke unter sozialen Gesichtspunkten zu nachhaltigen Bauwerken und einer nachhaltigen Entwicklung leisten.
ANMERKUNG 1   Die Bewertung der sozialen Qualität ist ein Gesichtspunkt der Nachhaltigkeitsbewertung von Gebäuden innerhalb der allgemeinen Rahmenbedingungen nach prEN 15643 1.
Die Rahmenbedingungen gelten für alle Arten von Gebäuden, sowohl für neue als auch für bestehende, und sie sind für die Bewertung der sozialen Qualität bei neuen Gebäuden über das gesamte Nutzungsstadium des Lebenszyklus und bei bestehenden Gebäuden für deren restliche Lebensdauer maßgeblich.
ANMERKUNG 2   Künftige Überarbeitungen dieser Norm können die Bewertung der sozialen Qualität auch für weitere Phasen des Lebenszyklus eines Gebäudes umfassen.
Die soziale Dimension der Nachhaltigkeit konzentriert sich in der ersten Normengeneration auf die Bewertung der Auswirkungen eines Gebäudes in Bezug auf seine Bewohner und auf weitere Nutzer und wird mithilfe quantitativ bestimmbarer Indikatoren angegeben. Das Ausmaß der sozialen Qualität wird durch Indikatoren verkörpert für:
-   Gesundheit und Behaglichkeit;
-   Erreichbarkeit;
-   Instandhaltung;
-   Sicherheit / Schutz;
-   Belastungen für die benachbarten Bereiche.
Die Bau- und Rückbauphasen innerhalb des Lebenszyklus eines Gebäudes einschließlich umwelt- und sicherheitstechnischer Aspekte, die sich auf die Bauarbeiter beziehen, sind nicht Teil der ersten Normengeneration.
Die unter diesen Rahmenbedingungen entwickelten Norm enthalten weder Regeln, wie die unterschiedlichen Verfahrensweisen der (...)

Contribution des ouvrages de construction au développement durable - Évaluation des bâtiments - Partie 3: Cadre méthodologique pour l'évaluation de la performance sociale

La présente Norme européenne fait partie d'une série de Normes européennes et présente les principes et
exigences spécifiques de l'évaluation des performances sociales des bâtiments en prenant en compte leurs
caractéristiques techniques et fonctionnelles. L'évaluation des performances sociales n'est qu'un aspect de
l'évaluation de la contribution au développement durable des ouvrages de construction dans le cadre général
de l'EN 15643-1.
Le cadre méthodologique s'applique à tous les types de bâtiments, neufs et existants. Il est valable pour
l'évaluation des performances sociales des bâtiments neufs durant toutes les phases de leur cycle de vie, et
des bâtiments existants jusqu'à la fin de leur vie.
NOTE 1 Bien que toutes les phases du cycle de vie soient prises en compte dans la présente Norme européenne, le
choix de ce qu'il est possible en pratique de couvrir dans la mise en oeuvre de ce cadre méthodologique est défini par le
prEN 16309, actuellement en cours d'élaboration. Il est possible que la première version du prEN 16309 limite l'application
du cadre méthodologique à certaines et non à l'ensemble des phases du cycle de vie, en fonction des méthodes pouvant
faire l’objet d’une normalisation européenne à la date de sortie de cette première version. Les révisions ultérieures du
prEN 16309 comprendront l'évaluation des performances sociales pour d'autres phases du cycle de vie du bâtiment, au
fur et à mesure que des méthodes de mesurage appropriées seront élaborées et qu'elles seront éligibles pour la
normalisation européenne.
La dimension sociale du développement durable se concentre sur l'évaluation des aspects et des impacts
d'un bâtiment, exprimés à l'aide d'indicateurs quantifiables. Les mesures des performances sociales seront
représentées par le biais d'indicateurs pour les catégories suivantes de performances sociales :
⎯ l'accessibilité ;
⎯ l'adaptabilité ;
⎯ l'hygiène et le confort ;
⎯ les contraintes pour le voisinage ;
⎯ l'entretien ;
⎯ la sécurité/sûreté ;
⎯ l'origine des matériaux et des services ;
⎯ l'implication des parties prenantes.
Les Normes européennes élaborées dans ce cadre méthodologique ne définissent pas de règles permettant
d'établir comment les systèmes d'évaluation des bâtiments peuvent fournir des méthodes d'attribution de
valeur. Elles ne prescrivent pas non plus de niveaux, classes ou référentiels pour mesurer les performances.
NOTE 2 Les méthodes, niveaux, classes ou référentiels d'attribution de valeur peuvent être prescrits dans les
exigences en matière de performances environnementales, sociales et économiques dans le programme du maître
d'ouvrage, les réglementations du secteur du bâtiment, les normes nationales, les codes de bonne pratique nationaux, les
méthodes d'évaluation et de certification des bâtiments, etc.
Les règles pour l'évaluation des aspects sociaux des organisations ne sont pas incluses dans ce cadre
méthodologique. En revanche, les conséquences des décisions ou des actions qui impactent les
performances sociales de l'objet de l'évaluation sont prises en compte.

EN 15643-3:2012 (E) 4 Introduction This European Standard forms part of a series of the European Standards, written by CEN/TC 350, (see Annex A), providing a system for the sustainability assessment of buildings at the building level using a life cycle approach. The sustainability assessment quantifies aspects and impacts to assess the environmental, social and economic performance of buildings using quantitative and qualitative indicators, both of which are measured without value judgements. The purpose of this series of standards is to enable comparability of the results of assessments. This series of European Standards does not set benchmarks or levels of performance. This series of standards will allow the sustainability assessment, i.e. the assessment of environmental, social and economic performance of a building, to be made concurrently and on an equal footing, on the basis of the same technical characteristics and functionality of the object of assessment. The sustainability assessment of buildings uses different types of information. The results of a sustainability assessment of a building provide information on the different type of indicators, the related building scenarios and the life cycle stages included in the assessment. In carrying out assessments, scenarios and a functional equivalent are determined at the building level. Assessment at the building level means that the descriptive model of the building with the major technical and functional requirements has been defined in the client's brief or in the regulations, as illustrated in Figure 1. Assessments can be undertaken for the whole building, for parts of the building, which can be used separately, or for elements of the building. Although the evaluation of technical and functional performance is beyond the scope of this series of standards, the technical performance and functional characteristics are considered within this framework by reference to the functional equivalent. The functional equivalent takes into account the technical and functional requirements and forms a basis for comparisons of the results of the assessment.

Any particular demands for, or related to, the environmental, social and economic performance defined in the client’s brief, or in regulations, may be declared and communicated. Figure 1 shows how the functional equivalent, and deviations in the technical and functional characteristics that differ from those required either by client’s brief or through regulations, are to be declared and communicated with the results of the assessment.

Figure 1 — The concept of sustainability assessment of buildings

NOTE 1 The outer box with the dotted line represents the area standardised by CEN/TC 350. In concept, the integrated building performance incorporates environmental, social and economic performance as well as the technical and functional performance, and these are intrinsically related to each other, as illustrated in Figure 2. Although the assessment of technical and functional performance does not form part of this series of standards, their interrelationship with environmental, social and economic performance is prerequisite for an assessment of sustainability performance of buildings, and therefore is taken into account.

It is advisable to carry out an assessment at the earliest opportunity during the conceptual stages of a construction or refurbishment project such as in the sketch plan stage in order to provide a broad estimate of the environmental performance, social performance and economic performance. As the project evolves, the assessment may be periodically reviewed and updated to support decision-making. A final assessment (as-built) should be carried out. The results of this final assessment can be used to inform all parties concerned. SIST EN 15643-3:2012

This framework is Part 3 of the framework standards for sustainability assessment of buildings shown in Figure 2 above. It focuses on the principles and requirements for the assessment of the social performance of a building at the “framework level”. The first revision of the general framework standard, EN 15643-1, will combine all four parts of the framework of this series of standards into one framework standard. This will ensure simultaneous revision of the interlinked parts of the frameworks within the series of standards. In the future, the assessment methodologies within this series of standards may be part of an overall assessment of integrated building performance. The assessment methodologies may also be extended to an assessment of the neighbourhoods and the wider built environment.

EN 15643-3:2012 (E) 7 1 Scope This European Standard forms one part of a series of European Standards and provides the specific principles and requirements for the assessment of social performance of buildings taking into account technical characteristics and functionality of a building. Assessment of social performance is one aspect of sustainability assessment of buildings under the general framework of EN 15643-1. The framework applies to all types of buildings, both new and existing, and it is relevant for the assessment of the social performance of new buildings over all stages of their life cycle, and of existing buildings to their end of life.

NOTE 1 Although all stages of the life cycle are considered in this European Standard, the choice of what is practical to cover in the implementation of this framework is the subject of the standard on “Assessment of Social Performance of Buildings –Methods”, which is under development. The first version of the Methods standard may limit the application of the framework to fewer than all life-cycle stages, depending on what methods are appropriate for European standardisation at this time. Future revisions of the Methods standard will include the assessment of social performance for other stages of the building life cycle as appropriate methods for measurement are developed and become suitable for European standardisation. The social dimension of sustainability concentrates on the assessment of aspects and impacts of a building expressed with quantifiable indicators. The social performance measures will be represented through indicators for the following social performance categories:  accessibility;  adaptability;  health and comfort;  loadings on the neighbourhood;  maintenance;  safety / security;  sourcing of materials and services;  stakeholder involvement. The European Standards developed under this framework do not set the rules for how building assessment schemes may provide valuation methods. Nor do they prescribe levels, classes or benchmarks for measuring performance. NOTE 2 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. The rules for assessment of social aspects of organisations are not included within this framework. However, the consequences of decisions or actions that influence the social performance of the object of assessment are taken into account. SIST EN 15643-3:2012
