If you are client wanting to commission a BREEAM assessment, download the document to the right of this page which provides a simple guide to obtaining a BREEAM rating.
Essentially this involves a few simple stages:
For the planning stage of communities – BREEAM Communities
For the design and construction of new buildings (non-domestic) – BREEAM New Construction 2011
For the design and construction of domestic buildings – Code for Sustainable Homes
For an in-use assessment of an existing building – BREEAM In-Use
For refurbishment and renovation – BREEAM Refurbishment
You can search for these on GreenBookLive
Your Assessor or Auditor will then take you through the remaining steps or registering for an assessment, getting certified and having your building listed on GreenBookLive.
Also see the further information listed in the menu on the left of this page for information on who requires or specifies BREEAM, how BREEAM is often used in the planning process and how ‘greener’ buildings are starting to demonstrate value.
