We advise the contractor early on regarding any costs associated with BREEAM obligations and ensure that any previous responsibilities of others have been completed (i.e. pre-refurbishment audit). Often, we are able to identify additional credits which can improve the overall rating from “good” to “very good” at little or no cost to you.
What we do
Our in-house BREEAM assessors offer a unique service and expertise.
Encore can also be nominated as client assessor. We have experience across all standards and ratings (e.g. residential, new construction, education, refurbishment and fit-out, offices, retail, etc).
Why we do it
Since BREEAM (the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) launched in 1990, it has become a benchmark standard and is seen as a way of promoting environmental awareness and sustainable building.
A strong focus on sustainability in the design, construction and use of buildings has become the norm in the UK. Many of England’s local authorities and large commercial and public sector organisations see BREEAM as a requirement in their procurement strategies.
Working with a BREEAM-compliant environmental consulting firm such as Encore Environment will reduce costs to deliver such projects. We take away the “noise” generated by multi-team ventures so our clients can deliver what they’re good at – an exemplar construction project.
