What is BREEAM?

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for planning projects, infrastructure and buildings. The BREEAM Assessment process evaluates the procurement, design, construction and operation of a development against targets that are based on performance benchmarks. Developments are then rated and certified on a scale of Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding.


BREEAM Pre-Assessment

The first stage of the BREEAM process is a BREEAM Pre-Assessment, a non-formal assessment designed to help design teams make decisions about the sustainability of a project.

There are a few situations where a BREEAM Pre-Assessment may be required, but the most common is the local authority requires it as a planning condition or it supports a planning application.

BREEAM New Construction

BREEAM assesses buildings across the following categories:

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

Our BREEAM Assessment Process

During the assessment process each category is subdivided into a range of issues which promotes the use of new benchmarks, aims and targets.

When a target is reached, credits are awarded, then once the development has been fully assessed, depending upon the total number of credits awarded, a final performance rating is achieved.

When construction is completed, our BREEAM Consultantant will conduct a site visit to establish that the construction meets the commitments made at the design stage. They will then produce the final BREEAM Assessment report for submission to BRE.
