There are several significant benefits for those who own, commission, deliver or manage buildings and infrastructure that are realised from implementing BREEAM. Whether cost-effectively recognising the value of sustainable development, reducing operational costs, mitigating investment and development risk, or making assets more financially attractive.
As a leading sustainability and environmental monitoring and reporting system for construction and property development, SmartWaste accurately captures data required to support BREEAM new construction schemes. The system records data and evidence that works towards answering issues and gaining BREEAM credits.
