Bite-Size Session: BREEAM 2018 - what do the changes mean for your project? - London
Join us to hear about the key changes to the latest BREEAM 2018 scheme update, and what these changes will mean in practice for your future projects.
This session, with trainer Becky Armstrong and Jeanne Davidson of Eight Associates, will summarise the most significant amendments to the scheme, and identify considerations that should be made to ensure projects are still performing to the required BREEAM performance standards.
Following the launch of the new BREEAM 2018 scheme in March 2018, there have been fundamental changes to the energy, transport, materials and ecology sections of the assessment methodology. The changes to the energy section have recognised the need to consider closing the performance gap with some additional requirements to consider operational energy use and energy performance post-occupancy. The update has also seen a shift away from the BRE’s Green Guide to Specification and a move to now carry out Life Cycle Assessments for materials credits. The ecology section, following a lengthy consultation period, has now undergone a major update, and provides an option to assess the development without an ecologist on the project for urban developments.
We will review these fundamental changes to the scheme in further detail, whilst summarising what other updates there have been to the BREEAM 2018 methodology and how these may impact on future projects that you are working on.
A case study will also be used to demonstrate a comparison between a BREEAM 2014 and BREEAM 2018 assessment to illustrate these changes.
