What Does BREEAM Stand For?

First published by the Building Reseearch Establishment (BRE) in 1990 covering buildings across London, BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment's Enviromental Assement Method.

How To Achieve BREEAM Excellence

The scoring for a BREEAM assessment in London is as follows:

  • Outstanding: 85%+
  • Excellent: 70%+
  • Very Good: 55%+
  • Good: 45%+
  • Pass: 30%+
  • Unclassified: <30%

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%.

It used to be that 'Good' was the maximum level that could be achieved with 100% being the maximum score in London from a BREEAM assessment. However, in 2008, a new 'Outstanding' category was added - although the percentages required for each level remained the same.

How Is BREEAM Assessed?

Covering a range of environmental issues in London, BREEAM looks at a building's impact on transport, waste, energy, health, water, pollution, materials, management and ecology to assess whether a building is Outstanding, Excellent, Very Good, Good or a Pass. Covering more than 50 countries and 250,000 buildings, BREEAM's aim is to educate building owners, designers and occupants about their impact on the local area.

What Are The Benefits of BREEAM?

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.

It's the hope that the BREEAM assessment will help building owners and designers improve their carbon footprint across London and make better use of their resources. A BREEAM certification is a way of validating how good a building is in terms of the environmental impact through a globally recognised standard.
