BREEAM construction standards are a normal requirement within many of the projects we undertake, we are therefore very familiar with criteria achievement.
BREEAM has raised awareness and made a difference in the mind set of designers, clients and contractors. However, the focus must not be on spending money on purely buying points and gimmicks, but on areas of future proofing the environmental sustainability of any building.
We conduct an initial assessment as soon as possible with clear ownership of tasks for information/evidence. The assessment report will become a “live” document reviewed as the project evolves to ensure tasks are tracked.
The BREEAM assessor plays an integral role, and the quality of their service makes a huge difference to the whole process. We maintain in-house expertise to assist BREEAM Assessors in satisfying and achieving the required standard.
