BREEAM Certification


The Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is the world’s most developed and renowned environmental assessment tools used for buildings across the globe. BREEAM factors construction performance and building design above and beyond the typical regulatory requirements, providing a recognised baseline of sustainable best practice.

BREEAM certification provides:

  • A tool to improve working and living environments and to help reduce running costs

  • A standard that exemplifies the progress towards organisational and corporate targets

  • Gaining inspiration to source more innovative sustainable solutions to further mitigate environmental impact

  • Affirmation that the most environmentally friendly practice is sutured into a building construction

  • Recognition across the market for lower environmental impact buildings

  • A baseline that is higher than regulatory standards

BREEAM aims to encourage design that mitigates the impact of buildings on the environment, provide recognition of best practice and to highlight awareness of and encourage more sustainable lifestyles. BREEAM buildings typically operate more efficiently and champion a commitment to further protect the environment. BREEAM ratings are a global and highly prestigious third-party accreditation of construction standards.
