What Is A BREEAM Rating?
The BREEAM ratings for a new, non-domestic building in Bristol 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 Bristol 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?
BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment's Enviromental Assement Method and was first published in 1990 by the Building Research Establishment (BRE) that covers Bristol.

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 Bristol 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 Is BREEAM Assessed?
Covering a range of environmental issues in Bristol, 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.
