BREEAM In Use
The environmental performance of an organisation’s built assets is a key factor in its sustainability credentials and carbon footprint. BREEAM In-Use is designed to help building managers reduce the running costs and improve the environmental performance of buildings.
All those involved in occupying, procuring or managing existing buildings can now evaluate, and improve, the performance of their property assets and the quality of their management regimes.
BREEAM In-Use sits alongside the already well-established BREEAM schemes for assessing the environmental performance of buildings at the design and construction stages. BREEAM In-Use is a mandatory requirement for any buildings that need to achieve a BREEAM Outstanding rating.
BREEAM In-Use consists of a standard, easy-to-use self-assessment tool and a third party certification process that provides a clear and credible route map to improving sustainability. The In-Use standard has three parts which cover: asset performance, building management performance and organisational effectiveness.
For a formal BREEAM rating, a licensed BREEAM In-Use auditor will need to carry out a site visit to verify the data and the online assessment. Reegen is licensed to undertake In-Use audits.
