BREEAM is sometimes referred to as BREEAM Reports, BREEAM Assessors, BREEAM Assessments, BREEAM Assessment Ratings, BREEAM Rating.

What Are The Benefits of BREEAM?

BREEAM aims to show that by building with the local area in mind, though capital costs may increase, you should save on operational costs in the long-term. This limits investor costs and makes the building more attractive when it comes to selling.

It's the hope that the BREEAM assessment will help building owners and designers improve their carbon footprint across Manchester 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.

How To Achieve BREEAM Excellence

To achieve an Excellent score in Manchester 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 Is A BREEAM Rating?

The BREEAM ratings for a new, non-domestic building in Manchester are:

  • Pass: standard good practice (top 75%)
  • Good: intermediate good practice (top 50%)
  • Very Good: advanced good practice (top 25%)
  • Excellent: best practice (top 10%)
  • Outstanding: innovator (top 1%)

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

What Does BREEAM Stand For?

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

How Is BREEAM Assessed?

BREEAM's aim is to educate building designers, owners and occupiers throughout Manchester 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.
