BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is a sustainability assessment method for buildings. It provides a framework for evaluating a building’s environmental performance and assigns a rating, such as “Very Good” or “Outstanding”, based on the building’s performance in areas such as energy efficiency, water use, and materials selection. BREEAM is widely used in the United Kingdom and other countries, and is recognized as a leading standard for sustainable building design and construction.


  • Complexity: BREEAM assessments can be complex and time-consuming
  • Cost: BREEAM certification can be costly, as it typically requires the services of a BREEAM Assessor
  • Meeting the requirements: Meeting the requirements can be challenging, especially for older buildings or those with limited space or resources.
  • Maintenance: BREEAM certification is not a one-time event, but requires ongoing monitoring and maintenance to maintain the certification.
  • Balancing cost and certification: Meeting the BREEAM requirements can be challenging and costly.
  • Lack of understanding of BREEAM among some stakeholders: Some stakeholders may not be familiar with BREEAM and its requirements, which can make it difficult to communicate the benefits of certification and gain buy-in for the project.
  • Changing requirements: BREEAM requirements are regularly updated and improved, which can make it difficult for building owners to keep up with the latest requirements.
