Small scale BREEAM assessments for domestic projects can still make a big difference.
This is a version of BREEAM which is only applicable to domestic buildings that are undergoing extension or change of use through refurbishments. It was launched in June 2012 and the scheme helps to show various levels of environmental compliance through an enhanced design solution.
This is not always a direct requirement of the planning application, but is often used by planning departments to encourage higher quality refurbishments. When BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment is required, early professional help will ensure the costs are controlled effectively.
Like Code for Sustainable Homes there are two stages to an assessment
- Design Stage Assessment
- Post Construction Assessment
By seeking early advice our assessor will produce a pre-assessment. This strategy will highlight to the design team the credits to be sought to ensure the correct level is achieved. It will identify easy win credits and will detail consultant responsibilities.
