QUALITIES AND TESTING CRITERIA

Healthier construction and modernisation is based on the availability of emissions-tested construction products.

Thanks to the Sentinel Haus concept, the healthy construction, modernisation, and operation of buildings is implemented according to transparent and comprehensible criteria. Health cannot be a mere question of marketing or abused for dubious advertising statements!

We strongly recommend an explicit contractual agreement between the client and the contractor to prevent technical uncertainties. Sentinel Haus is one of the pioneers in the development of measurable and transparent criteria for healthier construction, restoration, and living.

The database for emissions-tested products, emissions-tested buildings and experts for healthier and sustainable construction and modernising can be found at www.bauverzeichnis.gesündere-gebäude.de. The information checked by experts at Sentinel Haus Institut stems from trustworthy certificates of recognised testing institutes. This facilitates the safe implementation of construction projects with rigorous health-related quality criteria.

The Sentinel Haus building check - risk-free real estate transactions

For modernisations and restorations, we recommend the Sentinel Haus building check as a foundation. This modular assessment of pollutants reduces the risk in real estate transactions.

 

The value of a property definitively depends on if, which, and how many pollutants it contains. Before deciding to purchase and before the restoration of the energy system, it is therefore sensible to test the building for pollutants and toxins. Our engineers and experts use their experience to provide you with a reliable assessment of the pollution and potential restoration costs. In particular, they take into consideration relevant pollutants, such as asbestos, PCB, PCP, Lindane, formaldehyde, and radon. We also support you in your environmental due diligence, the check for potential environmental risks, with our services. Sufficiently safeguard yourself before your investment when purchasing and restoring. Ask directly about our consulting and measurement services.

 

New buildings and real estate deserve a reliable check and certification with respect to pollutants
