BREEAM In-use Residential Plus for US projects


BREEAM USA Residential Plus is a benchmarking and certification pathway available to multifamily assets pursuing financial incentives tied to minimum performance requirements.

The methodology allows for an independent assessment of both the physical asset’s performance and operational management. Certification is conducted by an independent, third-party licensed Assessor.

Residential Plus is accepted by Fannie Mae for their Green Financing Program. This program offers preferential pricing on loans secured by a multifamily property with a Fannie Mae-recognized green building certification.
