BREEAM is the leading environmental assessment method for buildings, setting the standard for best practice in sustainable design. Yet many professionals find BREEAM difficult to understand and often miss out on opportunities to optimise the credits that can be scored from a scheme.

This practical, accessible guide comes to the rescue – providing a much-needed explanation of BREEAM for all building professionals, whether architects, clients, contractors or engineers.

Focussing on those key areas to the assessment that can frequently cause confusion, it explains who needs to do what, and when – and also includes useful tips for ‘quick wins’ in relation to the 2011 BREEAM update. This guide provides a clear introduction to how to make the most of BREEAM.
