BREEAM Infrastructure Projects is the sustainability assessment scheme for civil engineering, infrastructure, landscaping, and public realm projects.

Alongside assessing performance, BREEAM Infrastructure provides significant influence to project or contract teams as they develop, design and construct their work, because it encourages them to consider sustainability issues at the most appropriate time.

BREEAM Infrastructure assessments are undertaken by a trained and registered BREEAM Infrastructure Assessor,
who is normally part of the project team that applies for the assessment. To undertake an assessment, all project teams must have a trained BREEAM Infrastructure Assessor.

This training course has been designed so that everyone who completes it successfully will be able to undertake a BREEAM Infrastructure Projects

After completing the course learners will be able to

  • Drive sustainability into every infrastructure project.
  • Take projects towards greener and more resilient future.

  • Navigate and be confident in assessing the technical aspects of the BREEAM Projects scheme.
  • Understand the assessment process and the support in place for the scheme and assessors.
