BREEAM Assessments

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) sets the standard for the best practice in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to describe a building’s environmental performance.  Credits are awarded in 10 categories according to performance (listed below).  These credits are then added together to produce a single overall score on a scale of Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding.  The BREEAM operation is also overseen by an independent Sustainability Board, which represents a wide cross-section of construction industry stakeholders.

The 10 scoring categories are:
• Management
• Health & Wellbeing
• Energy
• Transport
• Water
• Materials
• Waste
• Land Use & Ecology
• Pollution
• Innovation

Rating benchmarks
Once the credit score has been finalised, it is given a BREEAM rating.  See below to see how a rating is reached from a credit score.


BREEAM Rating % Score
Unclassified <30
Pass ≥30


Very Good ≥55
Excellent ≥70
Outstanding ≥85

If you have any questions about BREEAM or require an assessment, please get in touch with our offices.
