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

The scoring for a BREEAM assessment in Bristol is as follows:
- Outstanding: 85%+
- Excellent: 70%+
