What is a BREEAM Assessor?BREEAM Assessor

A BREEAM assessor uses recognised measures of performance to evaluate a buildings specification, design construction and use – these span:

  • Energy and water use
  • Internal environment (health & wellbeing)
  • Management processes
  • Pollution
  • Transport
  • Materials
  • Waste
  • Ecology

Why use BREEAM?

BREEAM addresses wide ranging environmental and sustainability issues and enables developers, designers and building managers to demonstrate the credentials of their buildings to clients, planners and other initial parties.

A BREEAM assessor can work on a variety of new construction schemes:

  • Commercial buildings – Offices / Industrial / Retail
  • Public buildings – See below
  • Multi-residential accomodation

Assessment is also available for existing refurbishment schemes under BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment – this standard was formerly assessed under Ecohomes.

Public Buildings

Many new public builds are subject to minimum BREEAM standards:

Healthcare

A number of government departments and other public bodies either encourage or require the use of BREEAM.

As of 1st July 2008, all health authorites (Department of Health, NHS Wales, Scottish Government Health Directives and the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety of Northern Ireland) require that new healthcare buildings seeking Outline of Business Case (OBC) approval commit to achieving an Excellent rating and all refurbishments commit to achieving Very Good.

Education

There is also a BREEAM requirement set for schools depending on whether they are refurbishments or new builds and the value of the build.

For example secondary schools procured through the now defunct Building Schools for the Future capital programme were required to achieve a ‘Very Good’ rating. We expect the latest Priority Schools Programme to require a similar standard.

Build Energy can assist with the tender process for our clients – providing whatever help you need to effectively price and bid for public and commercial projects.

Our BREEAM Assessors are certified, experienced, friendly and most of all passionate about the subject!
