Ingleton Wood is advising all clients to review current and potential BREEAM projects as the deadline looms for new registrations.
The BREEAM UK New Construction 2014 scheme will close on 23 March 2018.
Although its replacement – the BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 scheme – has launched, the cost implications are still not fully known.
Therefore, we strongly advise that all current or new projects are registered under the old scheme before it’s too late.
Rob Diamond, Sustainability Associate at Ingleton Wood, said: “The BREEAM 2018 methodology includes a substantial rewrite of the existing documentation and changes to the criteria to achieve credits as well as the introduction of new credits.
“However, the full cost implications are not yet fully known. We only require basic project details at this stage, but we feel very strongly that this could be time well spent to avoid clients facing an increase in costs in the future.”
The BREEAM UK New Construction scheme is a performance-based assessment method and certification scheme for new buildings.
The primary aim is to mitigate the impacts of new buildings on the environment in a robust and cost-effective manner. This is achieved through integration and use of the scheme by clients and their project teams at key stages in the design and construction process.
