Launched in 1990, BREEAM assessments have become the defacto set of standards for meeting sustainable building design, construction and operation and something which can be used by various parties throughout the life of the building.
Lumenco can provide a BREEAM assessment in order to meet the planners’ needs and expectations (as well as others) by providing specific measures of performance relative to the set BREEAM criteria. The measures used cover a number of categories and criteria including energy efficiency and management, water use, the internal environment, pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology and management processes. In addition BREEAM is tailored to specific types of developments:
Many Local Authorities have established targets for new developments to reduce the production of so called greenhouse gases. This may be supported by a requirement to achieve certain grading level of Code for Sustainable Homes / BREEAM for all or a proportion of dwellings or units.
