BREEAM typically reviews and updates its schemes on a three to four year cycle; back in September 2016, BREEAM began the process of updating its UK New Construction 2014 scheme. This webinar will provide an overview of the changes proposed in the DRAFT manual, the reasoning behind these changes, and the timescales for the launch of the final manual. Some of the more significant changes are in the Materials, Energy and Land use and
Ecology categories, summarised as follows:
– The Materials category has shifted emphasis to focus more on the life cycle impacts of the building as a whole, as opposed to the impact at an elemental level.
– The Ene 01 issue has been updated to reward the use of more detailed energy modelling, and an optional verification stage has been introduced to enable in-use performance to be compared with modelled data
– The Ecology issues have been updated and are subject to a separate consultation (applicable to all schemes including UK New Construction) which reflects the principles of the strategic ecology framework.
