BREEAM New Construction and RFO

BREEAM is the world’s leading environmental assessment methodology for benchmarking the environmental performance of residential and commercial buildings. It evaluates the procurement, design, construction and operation of a development against a range of performance targets.

The BREEAM Refurbishment and Fit Out (RFO) standard enables real estate investors, developers and building owners to assess and mitigate sustainability-related impacts during the design and works of a commercial refurbishment or fit out project. The standard recognises and reflects the performance of the building taking into account the external envelope, the structure, core services, local services and the interior design of the building.

SRE’s team of in-house sustainability specialists are highly experienced and many are qualified to the BREEAM AP standard. Our consultants work alongside design teams to identify the most cost-effective and practicable solutions for their projects enabling them to build out a project which not only meets the necessary environmental criteria but also adheres to the realities of the budget.

We also provide a number of technical BREEAM reports to support the assessment process, such as Building User Guides, Life Cycle Assessments, Thermal Modelling, Post-Occupancy Evaluations, Indoor Air Quality Plans and Daylight Calculations.
