What is BREEAM?
BREEAM 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.
What is BREEAM In-Use?
BREEAM In-Use is an online international environmental assessment methodology for independent, third-party assessment and certification of the 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.
BREEAM assesses buildings against the following categories:
- Health & Wellbeing
- Land Use & Ecology
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.
BREEAM In Use Process
The standard is broken into two parts, each looking at different aspects of the building:
- Part One – Asset Performance: the performance of the asset’s built form, construction, fixtures, fittings and installed services
- Part Two – Building Management: the operations and management of the asset
