BREEAM is an effective environmental assessment method and rating system for buildings. It is globally appreciated as a method of assessment and ranking, having certified 250,000 buildings to date and with more than a million further projects registered to be assessed and rated.
BREEAM was introduced in 1990 and it has evolved since then to become recognised as the most reliable, accurate and practical measure of a building’s environmental credentials.
The BREEAM assessment covers the viability of a building’s design, construction and operation and ensures compliance with recognised standards and regulations. The process considers a broad range of relevant factors and credits can be gained for aspects such as energy efficiency, water quality, health and safety, waste allocation, pollution, transport etc.
