BREEAM Overview
  • Environmental Assessment Method
  • Certification scheme
  • Voluntary
  • Independent credible
  • Holistic
  • Customer focussed
  • Credits based

BREEAM Scoring
  • Management
  • Health Wbeing
  • Energy
  • Transport
  • Water
  • Materials
  • Land Use
  • Ecology
  • Pollution

BREEAM Ratings
  • Pass 25 40
  • Good 40 - 55
  • Very Good 55 - 70
  • Excellent 70
  • Outstanding 80 (BREEAM 2008)

BREEAM Update
  • BREEAM 2008
  • Fundamental changes expected
  • Minimum standards as per CSH
  • Green Guide to Specification (2008)
  • Information from May 2008
  • Implementation from August 2008

BREEAM in the design process
Specific credit consideration
18
Optimise Management Credits
  • Commissioning
  • Whole Life Costing
  • Building Users Guide
  • Construction Site Impacts
  • Considerate Constructors Scheme
  • Construction Waste e.g. BRE SMARTWasteTM System
  • Monitoring of site CO2 (site energy and
    transport), water and control of dust and noise.

19
Optimise Health Wellbeing Credits
  • Indoor noise (requirements for specific
    functional areas)
  • 80 of relevant areas need to be adequately
    daylight
  • Glare Control
  • Openable windows in order to ensure a potential
    for natural ventilation
  • Air pollution location of air inlets

20
Optimise Health Wellbeing Credits cont.
  • Minimising risk of internal air pollution
  • 40m2 Lighting zones (4 workplaces)
  • Thermal zoning
  • Openable windows
  • CIBSE lux levels
  • Occupant controllable blinds
  • Good daylighting

21
Optimise Energy Credits
  • Improvement over building regulations
  • U-values better than current Building Regulations
  • Sub-metering of major energy uses
  • Tenancy sub-metering
  • Pool covers (?)

22
Optimise Transport Credits
  • Green Transport Plan
  • Minimise car parking/occupant ratio
  • Provide secure and sheltered cycle locking spaces
    and facilities for cyclists

23
Optimise Water Credits
  • Dual flush WCs
  • Waterless urinals and WCs
  • PIR controls
  • Spray or Aerating taps
  • lt9litres/min showers
  • Rainwater and Greywater usage
  • Automatic water shut off systems
  • Sanitary supply shut off
  • Water recycling including pool backwash (?)
  • Install a water meter !!

24
Optimise Materials Credits
  • Refurbishment rather than new building
  • Provide storage area for recyclable materials
  • Use of recycled aggregate material (for fill,
    hardcore etc)
  • Use of A rated materials from the Green Guide to
    Specification or use ENVEST
  • Design for robustness

2008 Update
25
Optimise Materials Credits cont.
  • Responsible Sourcing of Materials
  • Use materials with suitable sustainable
    certification
  • Timber should be certified under a recognised
    scheme, FSC and PEFC are best
  • Other materials should be EMAS or ISO14000
    compliance
  • Credit is assessed based on proportion of
    certified materials
  • Tiered structure favours timber i.e. maximum
    credits cannot be achieved with non-timber
    construction

26
Optimise Land-use and Ecology Credits
  • Careful site selection
  • Assess before on-site work commences
  • Identify contaminated land
  • Involve an appropriately qualified Ecologist
  • Protect existing ecology
  • Promote species diversity, native species,
    habitat creation
  • Biodiversity management

27
Optimise Pollution Credits
  • Specify use of insulation materials with zero ODP
    and low GWP
  • Install oil interceptors
  • No refrigeration
  • Build in an area of low flood risk and/or
    mitigate any flood risk
  • Use of locally generated renewable energy
  • Low NOx boilers

In Summary
  • Most benefits taken through early consideration
    of BREEAM.
  • Use your assessor they are there to provide
    guidance and to work with the project team.
  • Major changes are coming with tighter standards.
  • BREEAM should not be considered in isolation.
  • BREEAM should be a collaboration between those
    setting the targets and those designing to the
    targets.
  • ASA / Authorities What are your specific
    issues?
