Today, sustainable building means planning and producing structures that offer their users a high degree of comfort while only requiring a small amount of energy to operate. This entails: a high degree of thermal comfort, a good supply of daylight, good sound insulation with respect to both external and internal sources of noise, good room acoustics, the avoidance of any problems whatsoever with condensation or mold, and such a low energy requirement that especially gentle and efficient methods can be used to meet the remaining demand. At first glance, it might seem quite difficult to fulfill all these requirements. Taken together, the various textbooks on building physics and building automation and the large number of EN and SIA standards now in existence are more confusing than they are useful. By contrast, this manual presents the most important information on all the key aspects of sustainable building in concise and clearly organized form; makes it easy to put it into practice with the help of graphics, tables, and step-by-step instructions; illustrates it with examples; and supplements it with practical tips. That is not to say that PINPOINT is intended to replace a textbook or standards collection. On the contrary, it is meant to help practitioners who already have a grasp of the basics make rational use of their expertise while keeping their focus on the essentials.
