BREEAM In-Use is an online, international environmental assessment methodology for independent, third-party assessment and certification of a building’s operational performance. The standard enables property investors, owners, managers, and occupiers to drive sustainable improvements through operational efficiency, including how to continually manage the operation of their building effectively. This standard can be used to assess all existing non-domestic building types against nine environmental categories:
This standard is broken into three parts, each looking at different aspects of the building:
Part 1 – Asset Performance: The performance of the asset’s built form, construction, fixtures, fittings, and installed services.
Part 2 – Building Management: The operations and management of the asset.
Part 3 – Occupier Management: the management of building users and services within the building.
The BREEAM In-Use assessment process operates entirely through an online platform that enables users to register assets and assess them initially based on the part(s) chosen. The secure online system has dynamic scoring which produces instantaneous outputs and includes reporting functionality that allows the user to track and improve the performance of their assets.
The on-line scoring information provided is then tracked, collated and verified by the BREEAM Assessor who is then able to provide the actual scoring for the project in question. They can assist with ensuring the highest possible achievement is reached, are able to apply for certification and finally, can provide advice on ways in which to improve upon the achieved rating in the most practical and cost-effective way.
