The BREEAM New construction standards provide a framework to deliver high performing, and sustainable, newly built assets that support commercial success, whilst also creating positive environmental and social impact. Each standard uses a common framework that is adaptable to the asset’s location, allowing for international consistency and comparability.

The sustainability framework is underpinned by credible science, allowing the assessment process to identify valuable insights on the asset’s performance. The internationally recognised and third-party certification provides assurance and validation of the data collated throughout the assessment.
