Our congratulations go to Amy Clutterbuck & Jessica Lees, our newly qualified BREEAM Accredited Professionals/Advisory Professionals (BREEAM AP’s)!
The BREEAM AP qualification is granted to experienced construction professionals able to prove their knowledge of environmental and associated design processes through a rigorous programme of study and workshops followed by an exam.
Now, as qualified BREEAM AP’s, Jess and Amy are able to provide our clients’ design teams with expert advice on built environment sustainability, environmental design and environmental assessment. They’re also able to facilitate the team’s efforts to successfully schedule activities, set priorities and negotiate the trade-offs required to achieve the targeted BREEAM rating during the formal assessment stages.
Extra credits are also awarded in certain BREEAM schemes for appointing and using an Accredited Professional, recognising the significant contribution they can make to the design process.
Please do contact our BREEAM team if you’d like to discuss the benefits of appointing a BREEAM Assessor or AP to your project.
Congratulations, Amy & Jess!

Congratulations go to Mechanical Engineer, Kim Nguyen, who has just qualified as a Level 5 LCEA (Low Carbon Energy Assessor).
Our team now boasts a total of six qualified Low Carbon Energy Assessors who are able to produce non-domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC’s) for our clients.
This means our LCEA’s are Kim Nguyen LCEA 203717, David Scott LCEA156991, James Tickle LCEA030851, Phil Webster LCEA198802, Grant Vasey LCEA091653, and Rob Adkins LCEA015455.
Well done, Kim, on all your hard work in attaining the qualification!
For further information on EPC’s, please see the Non-Domestic Energy Performance Register, which states… “From 1st October 2008, all non-domestic buildings on construction, sale and rent will require a Non-Domestic Energy Performance Certificate (NDEPC) and a Recommendation Report (RR). This information will help owners and occupiers make their building more energy efficient and allow potential buyers and tenants to compare the energy performance of different buildings. This is being phased in from 6th April 2008 for buildings with a floor area of > 10000m². In July 2008, this will extend to buildings with a floor area of > 2500m².”
You can also search for our assessors via the CIBSE (Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers) Certification website, which can be found via this link and entering our postcode of B3 1DW in the search box.
