Supporting your design team to achieve the best possible BREEAM rating

Our team of skilled consultants can actively assist your design team, providing advice on how to maximise potential credits to achieve your desired BREEAM rating. Our expertise covers the UK and International versions of the system and, having developed and proven our capabilities and methodologies over many years on a wide range of innovative, high-profile projects worldwide, we are ideally placed to support any scale of project. 

Our BREEAM APs are well versed with the BREEAM assessment methodology and can integrate within the existing design team smoothly and efficiently. This includes being able to provide standalone BREEAM Accredited Professional services for clients who already have a BREEAM Assessor appointed.

Using the IES Virtual Environment software suite, we can test various design scenarios to undertake: 

  • BREEAM Accredited Professional services
  • Daylighting Modelling & Analysis
  • Thermal Comfort Modelling & Analysis
  • Energy Modelling & Analysis (Ene 01)
  • Material & Product Selection

We are able to assess the following credits across numerous BREEAM Schemes:


Man 01 - Sustainable procurement (Project brief and design) 

Hea 01 - Visual comfort (Daylighting, Daylighting Innovation) 

Man 01 - Project brief and design (Sustainability Champion)    

Hea 02 - Indoor air quality

Man 02 - Life cycle cost and service life planning

Hea 7 Potential for Natural Ventilation (Adaptability – Potential for natural ventilation)

Man 05 - Life cycle cost and service life planning

Hea 03 - Thermal comfort

Man 12 - Life Cycle Cost Analysis (Elemental life cycle cost, Component level LCC, Plan, Capital Cost reporting)

Hea 10 Thermal comfort (1st credit only, 2nd credit requires Design Team Implementation)

Man 05 - Aftercare

Hea 04 Thermal comfort (Thermal Modelling, Adaptability – for a project climate change scenario, 3rd credit requires Design Team Implementation)


Ene 01 - Reduction of emissions. Credit assessment capabilities cover both the UK NCM based requirements as well as the European ASHRAE 90.1 route

Mat 01 - Life cycle impacts (Materials and Material Innovation)

Ene 04 - Low and zero carbon technologies

Ene 5 - Low and zero carbon technologies (One credit – Low zero carbon feasibility study)

Ene 08 - Energy efficient equipment
