BREEAM is an internationally recognised environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. BREEAM provides a framework for sustainable design and uses recognised measures of performance to appraise the building’s design, construction and operation. The assessment covers the following sections:

  • Management
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Energy
  • Transport
  • Water
  • Materials
  • Waste
  • Land Use and Ecology
  • Pollution

A percentage score is awarded for each environmental section resulting in a pass, good, very good, excellent or an outstanding rating.

The benefits of BREEAM include:

  • A system to help reduce running costs
  • Improved property marketability and return on investment
  • A tool for supporting planning and funding conditions

We have qualified BREEAM assessors that can offer a full consultancy and assessment service.
