FAQ F-00189
How can proejct teams target the DGNB ‘Integrated Public Art’ credit under 'Global Sustainability'?

There are 2 pathways available for project teams to target the credit ‘Integrated Public Art’ credit from the DGNB CORE 2014 rating tool under 'Global Sustainability'.

 

Pathway 1: DGNB certification

The project has achieved this credit in an associated DGNB certification.

Documentation Requirements:

  • A copy of this response.
  • A copy of the results from DGNB showing that this credit has been achieved.

 

Pathway 2: No DGNB certification available

Projects teams may target one (1) point under 30 E - Global Sustainability by demonstrating compliance with the criteria SOC 3.2 "Integration of Public Art" from the DGNB CORE 2014 rating tool. 

To target the point, a total minimum of 60 checklist points (CLP) must be achieved across the 4 evaluation criteria. The GBCA notes that partial points are not applicable for this initiative.

In order to assist the assessor(s) with their assessment, the project team is required to justify how they comply with the DGNB criteria.

Documentation Requirements:

  • A copy of this response.
  • A short report describing (at a minimum):
    • the number of CLP achieved per evaluation criteria. The 4 evaluation criteria are: 
      • Funding
      • Procurement
      • Awareness-raising
      • Alternative: Minimum public art requirement
    • how the project has achieved the CLPs claimed for the above categories. This includes a description of the artwork, and the initiatives undertaken and implemented.
  • Supporting documentation to evidence the claims above. This could include, but is not limited to:
    • media announcements
    • artist statements
    • individual CVs
    • tour itineraries
    • exhibition or tour booklets

 

The GBCA provides the following interpretation of the requirements of the DGNB evaluation criteria to aid the project team and assessor(s):

  • Procurement
    • "Art expert" is interpreted to mean an individual suitably qualified and experienced to provide art critique.
    • "cooperation" is interpreted to mean meetings and/or workshops.
    • "art competition" is interpreted to mean a public competition process in line with local, state or national competition guidelines.
    • "appropriate selection process" is interpreted to mean with a panel of judges
    • "Young artist" is interpreted to mean an individual under the age of 35.
  • Awareness-raising
    • "publications" may be interpreted as online or print media
    • "labelling" must be a physical plaque or similar on-site label. 

For design assessment, if evidence of implementation is not available, commitment-style documentation may be more appropriate provided it sufficiently details how the CLP will be achieved.
