About Us

Health is the greatest asset!

Healthy building, living, and operating real estate must be affordable, meet transparent criteria, and fulfil a high level of practicality for parties involved in construction. 

Sentinel Haus Institut undertakes, supports, and initiates all necessary measures to make to the healthier building, modernising, and operating of buildings a construction standard. 

Sentinel Haus Institut fights for measurable and reliable criteria for the health-related quality of real estate. The increasing density of buildings requires more and more attention to construction quality management for healthier buildings and habitats.



Sentinel Haus Institut is in alignment with the quality standards of the German Environmental Agency and other renowned organisations that represent reputable indoor hygiene.

Sentinel Haus Institut GmbH is the result of a research project conducted by the German Federal Environmental Foundation and has since been collaborating with various university-based research institutions, attorneys, environmental medical professionals, and construction practitioners to further develop healthier indoor spaces. In 2013, the system was completed with the launch of the Healthier Building Directory, a data base for emissions-tested building materials, healthier properties, as well as accordingly trained planners, specialised tradespeople, and experts in healthy building and Sentinel Akademie, the professional development concept for high-quality and legally compliant healthy building.

Sentinel Haus Institut regularly works on publications, such as "Safe and healthy building"
