Building and infrastructure
The functional area of building and infrastructure is concerned with planning, building, and operating infrastructures based on the principles of sustainable development.

This includes the fulfilment of technical and functional requirements as well as the matters of user satisfaction, energy and resource efficiency, economic efficiency, and quality in design and urban development. The areas for action in this functional area span the entire life cycle of buildings and infrastructures: from planning and structural design, to construction and modernisation, to operation and management, to dismantling and disposal.
