BREEAM is the longest serving environmental assessment methodology and a familiar acronym in most aspects of the construction industry.
The general BREEAM process comprises three distinct assessment parts; pre-assessment, design-stage and post-construction, undertaken by a BRE trained and registered Assessor or Accredited Professional (AP). Target credits are selected by the team based upon the specific development opportunities and team aspirations. Having an Accredited Professional on hand throughout will mean that the rating is achieved with the most beneficial features, ensuring the clients money is spent where it can add true sustainable value.
BREEAM is constantly evolving to ensure that the process remains relevant to societal, environmental and political needs. The certification is a robust, established and familiar process that promotes higher building standards which add real value.
At ZED we are proud of our Accredited Professional status and have the experience to help at any stage in the BREEAM process.
