Delivering Sustainability Digitally - BREEAM & Data

  1. 1. Part of the BRE Trust BREEAM Constructing Excellence Sustainability Theme Group 4th October 2016 Chris Broadbent, Director, BREEAM Infrastructure Managing Director, CEEQUAL Ltd
  2. 2. Customer service Robust flexible governance & certification Online delivery, BIM ready, integrated 3rd party tools & data exploitation Sharing of performance data with investment market organisations International real estate clients who ‘choose and want’ BREEAM The most authoritative, comprehensive & widely used building environmental assessment and certification system globally! BREEAM Vision 2018 1 1
  3. 3. A Global Standard Locally Adapted + Our National Scheme Operators Used in 77 countries, 550,000 certificated buildings, over 2.2m registered

Site selection Design and planning Construction & post- construction Occupation End of life Region scale City scale Neighbourhood scale Building scale Non Domestic Infrastructure Communities Domestic Refurbishment Domestic In-Use Non Domestic Refurbishment Communities Across Scale & Life-Cycle Existing
  5. 5. The Principles
  6. 6. BREEAM Aims & Objectives BREEAM family of schemes aim to: – Ensure best environmental practice – Consider a broad range of environmental concerns – Balanced to ensure quality, safe & healthy environment – Set standards surpassing those required by regulation – Challenge the market to provide innovative solutions – Provide a credible environmental label – Stimulate demand for sustainability in the built environment 1
  7. 7. Key benefits of BREEAM Third party validation of sustainable credentials – Evaluate, improve and demonstrate sustainability throughout the project’s design and construction – Drives sustainable performance of an asset – Creates value and helps manage risk and reduce obsolescence – An inspirational standard that encourages improvement – Based on documented science based research, evidence & market best practice – Balanced across a range of sustainability issues – Robust certification & independence – Benchmarking against other international projects through consistency of approach – Encourages innovation
  8. 8. Environmental Standards Numberofbuildings Regulatoryminimum Minimal Aspirational Pass Good VeryGood Excellent Outstanding
  9. 9. Drivers Building Regulations – Towards zero carbon from 2019 for all buildings UN framework Convention on Climate Change & Kyoto Protocol – Legally binding commitments for the reduction of greenhouse gases EU Renewable Energy Directive 15 – 15% of energy consumption should be from renewable sources by 2020 Climate Change Act 2008 – places a legal obligation on Government to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by at least 80% by 2050 and 26% by 2020, against a 1990 baseline, with the trajectory defined by a system of five-year carbon budgets. Planning system – National ambitions will be tested through the planning system, both at regional and local level.
  10. 10. Construction industry impacts and market drivers • Large impacts from construction – Construction and demolition waste alone represents 32% of total UK waste (DEFRA) – Infrastructure accounts for 53% of the UK’s carbon footprint (HM Treasury) – Water on construction sites could be saved by 15-50% on most projects (WRAP) • Construction 2025 targets (HM Treasury, July 2013) • Increased focus on carbon (Infrastructure Carbon Review 2013) • Green Construction Board: • ‘Fundamental Truths’ case studies
  11. 11. Meeting challenges in a changing world • Reduced whole life cost • Reduced resource use • Improved health and safety • Improved project certainty • Adaptation to climate • Resilient and durable assets • Best practice delivery and world class projects Top image: IMG_9094 by Ingy The Wingy on Flickr | CC BY-ND 2.0 Bottom image: Mini Stack Interchange of Interstate 10, Loop 202, and State Route 51 (1) by Alan Stark on Flickr | CC BY-SA 2.0

Improveyour business Verification Initial assessment Inception Target setting Action plan Review BREEAM In-Use • BRE Environmental and Sustainability Standard (BES 5058) • Designed to provide detailed and meaningful insight into the environmental performance of buildings throughout their entire operational life. • Providing assessment of: – the building (Asset Rating), – the operation of the building (Building Management Rating), – how Clients are managing their activities within the building (Organisational Rating).
  19. 19. BREEAM Refurbishment and Fit-out 2014 • Dedicated new scheme for the assessment of refurbishment and fit-out projects including: • Fit-out of local services and interiors • Interior refresh projects • Base build fabric & service upgrades • Whole building refurbishment
  20. 20. BREEAM Refurbishment and Fit-out 2014 • A modular structure • Choose the parts that are appropriate to your projects scope of work • Appropriate criteria are filtered in or out • Single rating provided based on parts assessed • Parts assessed and overall rating listed on the certificate

  23. 23. BREEAM and CEEQUAL infrastructure – Recently extended BREEAM to include infrastructure – This is being piloted with several projects including HS2 and Thames Tideway – BRE acquired CEEQUAL in 2015 – CEEQUAL was established in 2004 and is well known as a environmental awards scheme for civil engineering project teams – There is strong industry preference for one rather than two schemes; BRE is therefore: – continuing to operate CEEQUAL as business as usual – continuing to pilot the BREEAM infrastructure methodology – bringing the two together so in two years time it will be the next version of both (becoming the intended CEEQUAL v6) – Supporting all CEEQUAL projects to completion
  24. 24. © CEEQUAL Ltd 2015 Wide coverage Sustainability assessment, rating and awards for civil engineering and infrastructure Established Flexible but rigorous Significant influencer & change agent tool Delivers better projects and cost savings Open process Better performanceWorthwhileness Major on-going development

  26. 26. Growing evidence of sustainability benefits Investment costs not as high as perceived 2013 Construction 2025 (HM Government) 2013 Infrastructure Carbon Review (HM Treasury) 2013 World Green Building Council (WorldGBC) report 2012 BSRIA Report: The Value of BREEAM report 2012 RICS report :Supply, Demand and the Value of Green 2012 Town & Country Planning Association’s publication ‘Good Practice Guide – Sustainable Design & Construction Potentially significant life cycle cost savings Increased value, suggested higher staff productivity levels Decreasing costs Improvement targets Reduced costs
  27. 27. Green buildings pay – There is increased investor demand for high quality properties with low risk – Certified buildings are more highly valued and safer long-term investments
