18 July 2012 - BRE Watford
Professionals with specialist knowledge of sustainability and environmental design are taking the lead in helping design teams meet these client expectations. BREEAM is an "assessor led" process through which designers submit evidence to an accredited individual who assumes no design responsibility. Until now there has been no way for designers themselves to claim a high level of competence with BREEAM other than by association with completed BREEAM Excellent buildings or by qualifying as a BREEAM Assessor.
The BREEAM Accredited Professional qualification is a response to industry calls to fill this gap by recognising specialist skills in sustainability and environmental design combined with a high level of competence in the BREEAM assessment process. It is aimed at architects, engineers and others with design skills and responsibilities.
BREEAM Accredited Professionals will provide the design team with expert advice on built environment sustainability, environmental design and environmental assessment. They will facilitate the team's efforts to successfully schedule activities, set priorities and negotiate the trade-offs required to achieve a target BREEAM rating when the design is formally assessed.
Successful candidates will be able to use the endorsement "BREEAM Accredited Professional" and will be eligible for listing in the BRE Global "Green Book". Designs can be awarded additional credits when a BREEAM Accredited Professional has been engaged to support the design process.
