We are keen promoters of the BREEAM standard and our qualified BREEAM Assessors and Accredited Professional are here to assist with ensuring your building achieves the highest possible rating.
We like to be involved at the beginning of a project, helping to define how the building and its environs are best able to achieve their required standards and performance.
The table below details some of the BREEAM Services we are able to offer and the best times for us to be involved/appointed.
In addition to licensed BREEAM Assessors, ESC is also able to provide design advice and guidance from their certified BREEAM Accredited Professionals (AP). The appointment of a BREEAM AP at RIBA Stage 1/2 enables 2 credits within the Man 01 Project Brief and Design issue to be achieved. A further credit can be achieved under the Man 03 Construction Site Impacts issue if the appointment is continued throughout the construction stages.
The AP’s role broadly consists of:
- Monitoring of the project to ensure ongoing compliance with the relevant sustainability performance criteria.
- Site visits at the key stages of construction to carry out spot checks to address any shortcomings in compliance.
- Progress reports to identify potential areas of non-compliance.
- Guidance on priority credits and trade-offs if/when required.
Please contact Vicki Wilson, Associate Director, if you’d like to discuss your project’s BREEAM requirements in further detail.
