BREEAM – The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method

The most common way of guiding and measuring sustainability in the UK construction industry is the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method. Here at Valco, we are able to offer a comprehensive suite of BREEAM assessment services; with in-house experience gained working on some of the most successful sustainable projects in the UK.

BREEAM seeks to quantify and improve the environmental performance of buildings by rewarding designs that take positive steps to minimise their environmental impact. Increasingly used for planning and funding purposes, BREEAM enables clients and their design teams to demonstrate the environmental credentials of their buildings through independent certification.

BREEAM can be used at any stage of a building’s life, from design / construction through to refurbishment, even in operation.
