SRE has been undertaking the BREEAM assessment and Building Regulation compliance of this new petrol station and forecourt in Cosham in order to address the planning requirements for achieving a ‘Very Good’ rating. Despite the challenges of the small, compact site the scheme has maximised its sustainable features including resource efficient car washing and on-site renewable energy generation. In addition SRE has completed the energy modelling and Building Regulation compliance for the shop and office building.

'From our perspective, BREEAM is another burden on small businesses, however, SRE handled the process from start to finish, minimising the impact and time we had to spend dealing with it. For this reason, we will definitely consult SRE when we start our next project.'
