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.
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.
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 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.
