This document provides principles and requirements for the assessment of environmental, social and economic performance of buildings and civil engineering works taking into account their technical characteristics and functionality. Assessments of environmental, social and economic performance are the three aspects of sustainability assessment of buildings and civil engineering works, or combination thereof, (hereafter referred to as "construction works").

The framework applies to all types of construction works, both new and existing, and it is relevant for the assessment of the environmental, social and economic performance of new construction works over their entire life cycle, and of existing construction works over their remaining service life and end of life stage.

The sustainability assessment of construction works concentrates on the assessment of environmental, social and economic aspects and impacts of construction works expressed with quantifiable indicators. It includes the assessment of a construction works’ influence on the environmental, social and economic aspects and impacts on the local area (area of influence) and of the local infrastructure beyond the curtilage of the building and the civil engineering works. It excludes environmental, social and economic risk assessment.

The European Standards developed under this framework do not set the rules for how the different assessment methodologies may provide valuation methods; nor do they prescribe levels or classes for measuring performance.

NOTE Valuation methods, levels, classes or benchmarks can be prescribed in the requirements for environmental, social and economic performance in the client’s brief, construction regulations, national standards, national codes of practice, construction works assessment and certification schemes, etc.

The rules for assessment of environmental, social and economic aspects of organizations, such as management systems, are not included within this framework. However, the consequences of decisions or actions that influence the environmental, social and economic performance of the object of assessment are taken into account.

This document specifies procedures to determine the impact sound insulation using sound pressure measurements with an impact source operating on a floor or stairs in a building. These procedures are intended for room volumes in the range from 10 m3 to 250 m3 in the frequency range from 50 Hz to 5 000 Hz. The test results can be used to quantify, assess and compare the impact sound insulation in unfurnished or furnished rooms where the sound field can approximate to a diffuse field.

(1) The basis for the design of building and civil engineering works in masonry is given in this Part 1-1 of EN 1996, which deals with unreinforced masonry, reinforced masonry and confined masonry. Principles for the design of prestressed masonry are also given. This Part 1-1 of EN 1996 is not valid for masonry elements with a plan area of less than 0,04 m2.

(2) Part 1-1 of EN 1996 gives detailed rules which are mainly applicable to ordinary buildings. The applicability of these rules can be limited, for practical reasons or due to simplifications; any limits of applicability are given in the text where necessary.

(3) Execution is covered to the extent that is necessary to indicate the quality of the construction materials and products that to be used and the standard of workmanship on site needed to comply with the assumptions made in the design rules.

(4) For those types of structures not covered entirely, for new structural uses for established materials, for new materials, or where actions and other influences outside normal experience have to be resisted, the provisions given in this Part 1-1 of EN 1996 can be applied, but with possible need for supplements.

(5) Part 1-1 of EN 1996 does not cover:

— resistance to fire (which is dealt with in EN 1996-1-2);

— particular aspects of special types of building (for example, dynamic effects on tall buildings);

— particular aspects of special types of civil engineering works (such as masonry bridges, dams, chimneys or liquid-retaining structures);

— particular aspects of special types of structures (such as arches or domes);

— masonry where gypsum, with or without cement, mortars are used;

— masonry where the units are not laid in a regular pattern of courses (rubble masonry);

— masonry reinforced with other materials than steel.

ISO 10848 (all parts) specifies laboratory and field measurement methods to characterize the flanking transmission of one or several building components.

This part of ISO 10848 specifies measurement methods to be performed in the laboratory to characterize the acoustic radiation of a building element when it is directly excited by an airborne or structure-borne source. It is applicable to single-leaf and double-leaf elements (see ISO 12354-1:2017 Annex F, F2). The measured quantity can be used as input data for prediction methods, such as ISO 12354-1 and ISO 12354-2, to compare products, or to express a requirement.

This document specifies a method for determining the adhesion of a bituminous emulsion coated onto aggregate when immersed in water.

The method considers two different aspects of adhesivity, i.e. immediate adhesivity and water effect on binder adhesion.

The method may be used with a reference aggregate. In that case, it measures the intrinsic adhesion behaviour of a bituminous emulsion. The method may also be used with a specific aggregate as used on a job site.

WARNING — The use of this document may involve hazardous materials, operations and equipment. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate safety and health practices and to determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This European Standard gives a method for determining characteristic values of mechanical properties and density, for defined populations of visual grades and/or strength classes of machine graded structural timber. Additionally it covers the stages of sampling, testing, analysis and presentation of the data. The standard provides methods to derive strength, stiffness and density properties for structural timber from tests with defect-free specimen. The values determined in accordance with this standard for mechanical properties and density are suitable for assigning grades and species to the strength classes of EN 338. NOTE 1 For assigning grades and species to the strength classes in EN 338 only three properties, i.e. bending or tension strength, modulus of elasticity parallel to grain in bending or tension and density need to be determined from test data, other properties can be calculated according to Table 2. NOTE 2 EN 1912 gives examples of established visual grades assigned to strength classes.
