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.
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.

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%)
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.
How To Achieve BREEAM Excellence
To achieve an Excellent score in Bristol 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.
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 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.
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.
