The BREEAM Refurbishment and fit-out standards provide a framework to deliver projects to a high performing and sustainable standard, support commercial success, and create positive environmental and social impact.

The standards can be used to assess refurbishment of the external envelope, structure, core services, local services, and interior design of existing. Each standard uses a common framework that adapts to the location of the asset and supports 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.
