Evironmental Assessments

Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology

BREEAM from the Building Research Establishment is an environmental assessment methodology using scientifically based Sustainability metrics and indices that cover a range of environmental issues. Its categories evaluate energy and water use, health and well-being, pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology, and management processes. Buildings are rated and certified on a scale of ‘Pass’, ‘Good’, ‘Very Good’, ‘Excellent’ and ‘Outstanding’. It is carried out by independent, licensed assessors.

It works to raise awareness amongst owners, occupiers, and designers of the benefits of taking a sustainability approach.
