BREEAM is an industry and world wide recognised standard, for assessing the energy efficiency of a building. For the Feltham Skills Centre development, the following standards are required:
- A minimum BREEAM Score of at least 70%.
- A minimum BREEAM Rating of Excellent
The Assessor has worked with the Design Team to establish which credits could be achieved on the current project design, the results of which are detailed below. The purpose of the assessment is to ensure that flexible, energy efficient, easily maintainable and environmentally friendly buildings are provided. The existing design of the buildings would provisionally achieve an ‘Excellent’ rating of 74.4% based on the current proposed design as detailed in the following table.
