There are a number of elements that determine the overall performance of aproject assessed using BREEAM; these are as follows:
How these elements combine to produce a BREEAM rating for a project is summarised on the following pages. This is followed by a description and example describing the methodology for calculating a rating.
The BREEAM rating benchmarks for projects assessed using the BREEAM International New Construction 2016 scheme are as follows:
|BREEAM Rating||% score|
|VERY GOOD||≥ 55|
The BREEAM rating benchmarks enable a client and all other stakeholders to compare the performance of a building with other BREEAM rated buildings of the same type, and the typical sustainability performance of a stock of buildings.
In this respect each BREEAM rating broadly represents performance equivalent to:
An unclassified BREEAM rating represents performance that is non-compliant with BREEAM, in terms of failing to meet either the BREEAM minimum standards of performance for key environmental issues or the overall threshold score required to achieve at least a Pass rating.
