What Is A BREEAM Rating?
The BREEAM ratings for new, non-domestic buildings in Bristol 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 Bristol 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.
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.
What Does BREEAM Stand For?
First published by the Building Reseearch Establishment (BRE) in 1990 covering buildings across Bristol, 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 Bristol 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.
