BREEAM New Construction:Industrial

BREEAM for industrial buildings is an assessment method and a certification scheme that can be used at the design, construction, and refurbishment stages of a building’s lifecycle.

The scheme can be used to assess one or a combination of the following types of industrial building:

 1. Storage and distribution warehouses: (including cold food storage)

 2. Light industrial/factory units e.g. manufacturing, assembly, packaging etc. and small 'starter' or 'nursery' units.

 3. Workshops: e.g. manual workshops and vehicle workshops.

For more information on the scope of the BREEAM scheme for industrial buildings, please refer to the Scheme Document. To download a copy of the Scheme Document or the Pre-Assessment Estimator, please go to the Resources section of this website. For examples of buildings that have been assessed against the BREEAM Industrial scheme criteria, please see below or visit the Case Studies section of this website.
