BREEAM domestic refurbishment was previously known as being EcoHomes and it launched in June 2012. We were one of the first licensed organisations to take part in this in the United Kingdom. All of our assessors have a very high level of involvement when it comes to pilot case studies and we have worked on pre-assessments in the past as well so as you can see, BREEAM refurbishment really is one of our strong points. Our BREEAM 2008 for fit-out and refurbishment assessors are friendly, experienced and they love what they do as well so you know you won’t have any problems there.
The assessment evaluates the credentials of the project and this is all based on the standard of quality that is present for over 200,000 buildings across the world. This is otherwise known as the BREEAM certification scheme but there is a difference. Domestic refurbishments deal with existing buildings and the new scheme allows you to show your environmental credentials as well as helping you to offer a higher level of confidence to your clients.
The scheme helps homeowners to save on operating costs as well as helping them to reduce the impact of the refurbishment in general.
The scheme allows Green Deal advisors, developers and even designers to promote a better design. It can also help those who manage assets to set up certain standards when it comes to refurbishment and it keeps it on a higher level of quality as well.
The UK is completely committed to lowering Co2 emissions and this needs to be done by over 80% by the year 2050. It is also stated that 78% of the UK buildings will still be in operation by this time so it is now more important than ever for you to maintain a high standard of performance in all of your buildings.
The BREEAM scheme helps you by providing you with a methodology and a certification for those who are responsible for delivering refurbishment projects. It can be used for a lot more as well and this includes situations where alterations are made and domestic conversions as well. So as you can see, BREEAM is used for a wide range of applications and it is very important for you to have someone who can work with you to get the very best result from your planning so you can avoid any problems in the future. We can help you with that, and we are more than capable of meeting the required standards the first time around.
