BREEAM Assessment & Advice
Ynys Resources Ltd has the capability to conduct Commercial BREEAM assessments including Industrial, Offices and Retail. A full list of [environmental assessment areas](breeam_areas) are available.
BREEAM (BRE Environmental Assessment Method) is the leading and most widely used environmental assessment method for buildings. It sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to describe a building’s environmental performance.
About BREEAM buildings
The BREEAM assessment process was created in 1990 with the first two versions covering offices and homes. Versions are updated regularly in line with UK Building Regulations and different building versions have been created since its launch to assess various building types. These versions essentially look at the same [broad range of environmental impacts](breeam_areas):
- Health and Wellbeing
- Material and Waste
- Landuse and Ecology
Credits are awarded in each of the above areas according to performance. A set of environmental weightings then enables the credits to be added together to produce a single overall score. The building is then rated on a scale of: PASS, GOOD, VERY GOOD, EXCELLENT or OUTSTANDING and a certificate awarded to the development.
