“Healthy building requires not only thorough identification and remediation of pollutants in existing buildings, but also careful selection of low-pollutant materials in new construction. The BGZ project Co4Health has recognized this and wants to integrate competencies for healthy building into vocational training and also equip future skilled workers with new skills.”Prof. Dr.-Ing.
