STLB-Bau Dynamische BauDaten is a data base oriented text system for the standardized description of construction work. A dialog program and a XML-interface are provided for the collection of the texts and the transmission to the application program. STLB-Bau enables changes and additions to already compiled texts without problems. Additional information is available in the form of sketches and notes.

The texts are established according to general contractual conditions (ATV) of VOB/C.

Only established construction works and other works concerning the building industry are described and standardized. Key is the frequency of application in construction practice.

STLB-Bau is the basis of the communication between all building industry applications, for example CAD, calculation, information on building products, cost planning and controlling, documentation etc.

Technical preconditions for STLB-Bau are: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 with the current service packs respectively.

  • STLB-Bau ist anwenderfreundlich

Funktionen wie Stichwort- bzw. Normensuche und das unkomplizierte Hinzufügen bzw. Ersetzen von Textbausteinen machen STLB-Bau zu einem dynamischen System.

  • STLB-Bau reduziert Ausschreibungsfehler

Fachliche Unstimmigkeiten innerhalb von Leistungsbeschreibungen werden durch interne Regeln weitestgehend ausgeschlossen.

  • TLB-Bau ist VOB-gerecht

Durch die Zugehörigkeit des GAEB zum Deutschen Vergabe und Vertragsausschuss (DVA), dem Verfasser der VOB, stehen dem GAEB  immer aktuelle Informationen zur Aktualisierung und Auslegung der VOB zur Verfügung.

  • STLB-Bau ist normenaktuell

Aufgrund der enger Zusammenarbeit mit DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung e. V. werden neue und geänderte Normen zeitnah in STLB-Bau eingearbeitet.

  • STLB-Bau wird halbjährlich aktualisiert

STLB-Bau ist bei Ausschreibungen von Bundeshochbaumaßnahmen verpflichtend einzusetzen. Dies ist im Einführungserlass des Bundesministeriums für Umwelt, Naturschutz, Bau und Reaktorsicherheit vom 03.08.1998 und den Folgeerlassen sowie im Vergabe- und Vertragshandbuch für die Baumaßnahmen des Bundes geregelt.


In the establishment of the standardized text it is presupposed that part B and C of the VOB are parts of the building contract. In order to avoid repetitions or contradictions, citations from part B and part C of VOB are not allowed..

In STLB-Bau, descriptions of works that are established in the building industry are being standardized. Established works are services that comply to state of the art technical regulations and have become a standard due to their high frequency of application. As high frequent also count those works that only matter in particular areas of the building industry (e.g. industrial construction, construction of hospitals). This includes texts concerning maintenance and renovation work.

Additional works according to section 4.1 of VOB/C are not described. If the costs of the additional works are of considerable significance, it can be tendered separately according to section 0.4.1 of ATV DIN 18299.

In the establishment of standard specifications of work it is presupposed according to VOB/C, that the described work includes the supply of the corresponding material and construction parts if nothing else is stipulated.

Therefore, the supply of material and construction parts by the contractor is not particularly mentioned in STLB-Bau (exceptions: DIN If nevertheless texts are established solely concerning supply, the exclusiveness of these texts has to be signaled with an added conjunction, e.g. “only supply”.

This also applies for additional deviations from VOB/C that are deemed necessary if the scope of the specification is supposed to focus on certain service parts (e.g. installation, connecting). Contradictions to the standard specifications of the section “Provision of material, building parts and building elements” in working section 099 General Specifications of Work may not emerge.

Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008 each current Servicepacks.

The master specifications for construction work

The complete works of the master specifications are divided into single work categories. The single work categories correspond, in relation to the general technical contract conditions for building services – (ATV (VOB/C), mostly to the trade classification. In general, every construction work is listed only once in the master specifications.
Every work category is marked by a three-digit number from 000 to 999. The following sections are differentiated:

  • 000 – 099 Master Specifications for construction work – Dynamische BauDaten – (STLB-Bau)
  • 100 – 199 Master specifications for road and bridge construction (STLK)*,
  • 200 – 299 Master specification for waterways engineering (STLK-W)*,
  • 300 – 399 Previous master specification for construction- construction in the building stock (BIB), now included on STLB-Bau
  • 400 – 499 Previous work category of the Deutsche Bahn AG network division*, partly integrated in STLB-Bau
  • 500 – 599 Master specifications for construction – construction in the building stock, log and prefabricated high-rise construction (BiB), now included in STLB-Ba
  • 600 – 699 Master specifications for construction – term contract work – Dynamische BauDaten – (STLB-BauZ)
  • 700 – 799 currently not used
  • 800 – 899 Draft versions (yellow prints) of the STLK for road and bridge construction *
  • 900 – 999 Regional service catalogues (RLK)*
