BREEAM Assessment

BREEAM is the World's leading environmental assessment and rating methodology for buildings.


It sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to assess and report a building's environmental performance.

BREEAM is also specified and required by many local authorities across the UK via the planning system, as it provides a way of assuring the sustainability of new developments.

BREEAM can be used to assess the environment performance of any type of building – both new build and existing stock.

ARB offer BREEAM Accredited Professional services, which can ensure that additional credits are scored in the assessment process, and reduce the cost of achieving the required rating.


We can assess any building and also offer the additional services required to meet certain BREEAM credits, such as:

  • Low Zero Carbon feasibility studies
  • Flood Risk Assessment reports
  • Ecology Reports
  • Daylight Calculations
  • Hydrologist Report (Surface Water Run-off calculations)
  • Building User guide
  • Site Waste Management Plan template & consultancy
  • Indoor Air Quality Plan

We offer BREEAM Pre-Assessments as a standalone service if required, and can combine these with  Sustainability Statements and/or Energy Statements to meet planning conditions for planning applications for new developments or extensions.

We also offer awareness seminars and more detailed training sessions on all aspects of BREEAM that can be delivered at your location, or at our offices in Hebden Bridge.
