BREEAM Certification

BRE Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is a voluntary measurement rating for green buildings that was established in the UK by the Building Research Establishment (BRE). BREEAM is the leading and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings. It sets the standard for best practices in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to describe a building's environmental performance. The method is used to assess the environmental performance of both new and existing developments.

BREEAM provides clients, developers, designers and others with:

  • Market recognition for low environmental impact buildings;
  • Assurance that the best environmental practice is incorporated into a building;
  • Inspiration to find innovative solutions that minimise the environmental impact;
  • A benchmark that is higher than the imposed regulation;
  • A tool to help reduce running costs, improve working and living environments;
  • A standard that demonstrates progress towards corporate and organisational environmental objectives.
