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

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.

A BREEAM certification is a way of validating how good a building in Plymouth 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.

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 Plymouth.

How To Achieve BREEAM Excellence

The scoring for a BREEAM assessment in Plymouth 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 Plymouth 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 Plymouth 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?

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