BREEAM Infrastructure is the world’s first sustainability rating scheme to improve design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure assets. Alongside assessing performance, BREEAM Infrastructure encourages project or contract teams to consider sustainability issues as they develop, design and construct their work.

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

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

After completing the course learners will be able to

  • Drive sustainability into every infrastructure contract.
  • Take contracts towards greener and more resilient future.
  • Navigate and be confident in assessing the technical aspects of the BREEAM Infrastructure Term Contracts scheme.
  • Understand the assessment process and the support in place for the scheme and assessors.
  • Understand the certification process.
  • Successfully carry out BREEAM Infrastructure Term Contracts assessments.
