The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is the world’s leading certification process for the sustainable design of buildings and communities.
BREEAM Assessments can be used to assess industrial, offices, commercial, education and healthcare schemes, amongst others. The BREEAM Ecohomes Assessment procedure has now been replaced by the Code for Sustainable Homes for new dwellings but continues to cover residential refurbishment and conversions.
dha environment can advise on what assessment method is required, the local sustainability requirements for developments covered by the BREEAM assessment procedure, and the cost and implications of seeking these different levels. We can produce BREEAM Pre-Assessment reports to accompany planning applications which set out what level is proposed and how this could be obtained, identifying potential areas where improved performance could be sought if required.
