BREEAM is sometimes referred to as BREEAM Assessors, BREEAM Assessments, BREEAM Rating, BREEAM Reports, BREEAM Assessment Ratings.
How To Achieve BREEAM Excellence
To achieve an Excellent score in Newcastle 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.
How Is BREEAM Assessed?
Covering a range of environmental issues in Newcastle, 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 the hope that the BREEAM assessment will help building owners and designers improve their carbon footprint across Newcastle 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.
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.

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 Newcastle.
What Is A BREEAM Rating?
The BREEAM ratings for new, non-domestic buildings in Newcastle 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 Newcastle 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.
