The Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) has been used to assess the environmental performance of both new and existing buildings since its launch in 1990. It is regarded by the UK's construction and property sectors as the measure of best practice in environmental design and management.
Ingleton Wood have accredited assessors who can conduct assessments to suit your requirements. Where necessary we can provide BREEAM clauses for inclusion into the design team's specifications. We have developed bespoke action criteria forms that can greatly assist the project team in reaching compliance in the BREEAM methodology.
We have licenced and accredited assessors to cover the following BREEAM schemes.
Ingleton Wood’s licenced and accredited assessors have experience in working on all sizes of scheme from single domestic properties to larger developments of hundreds of units. We provide a professional assessment and advice service to help achieve your projects goals in the most cost effective and efficient way.
DREAM is an environmental assessment methodology for use on Ministry of Defence buildings. It is similar to BREEAM but is designed specifically for MoD installations. Ingleton Wood can provide DREAM assessments along with consultancy for new and refurbishment projects and can provide advice to meet DREAM criteria.
Daylighting for BREEAM
BREEAM have credits available for the design of well daylit spaces. Using bespoke daylighting tools and performing calculations in line with industry standards, we can perform daylighting calculations to access the credits under BREEAM.
Low & Zero Carbon (LZC) Reports
LZC reports are required under BREEAM in order to gain credits for the use of renewable technologies.
Our assessors can analyse your project and renewable technologies available to suggest the most economic and feasible LZC technologies for use on site. These early stage reports have the potential to inform the energy strategy for the development and help reduce the energy demand and use throughout the life of the scheme.
Residential Retrofitting largely refers to improvements that are necessary for older properties to enhance their energy efficiency. This can be achieved by implementing a number of measures and could include replacing a heating system, improving the ventilation and air quality, utilising renewable technologies, improving insulation or all of these. The aim of Retrofit Assessment programmes is to have a qualified team of experts in place to carry out these changes, manage the process, and provide a handover to the property owner upon completion. The property will then be more energy efficient, cost effective and ultimately greener to benefit the environment we live in.
Retrofit Assessors are trained to undertake a retrofit assessment for dwellings in accordance with PAS 2035. The activities completed within the retrofit assessment include the production of an RdSAP assessment, a detailed floor plan, a condition report and an occupancy assessment. The data collected from these sources is used by the Retrofit Coordinator to formulate a medium-term improvement plan. Accredited Domestic Energy Assessors are well placed to become qualified Retrofit Assessors due to their extensive knowledge and experience with RdSAP methodology and assessment of existing dwellings.
