How Is BREEAM Assessed?
BREEAM's aim is to educate building designers, owners and occupiers throughout London about the impact their building has on the local area. To do this, BREEAM gives a rating of Outstanding, Excellent, Very Good, Good or a Pass based on transport, waste, energy, health, water, pollution, materials, management and ecology.
How To Achieve BREEAM Excellence
To achieve an Excellent score in London you'll need to score 70% or above where an Outstanding rating is for 85% and up. To just pass the assessment the building will need to score 30% or above with anything lower marked as Unclassified.
What Does BREEAM Stand For?
BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment's Enviromental Assement Method and was first published in 1990 by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) that covers London.
What Are The Benefits of BREEAM?
A BREEAM certification is a way of validating how good a building in London is in terms of the environmental impact through a globally recognised standard. It's the hope that the BREEAM assessment will help building owners and designers to improve their carbon footprint and make better use of their resources.
It's not unheard of that making a building more environmentally friendly will increase the cost of construction - but BREEAM aims to show that by building this way you will save on operational costs in the future that in turn limit investor costs and makes the property more attractive when reselling.
What Is A BREEAM Rating?
The BREEAM ratings for new, non-domestic buildings in London are as follows: Pass (standard good practice) for the top 75%, Good (intermediate good practice) for the top 50%. Very Good (advanced good practice) for top 25%. Excellent (best practice) for top 10% and Outstanding innovator) for the top 1%.
The maximum score a building can achieve in London is 100% from a BREEAM assessment. It used to be that 'Good' was the maximum level that could be achieved, however in 2008 a new 'Outstanding' category was added. The percentage required for each level remained the same despite this.
