BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) is a voluntary building sustainability rating system established in the United Kingdom to assess the environmental performance of buildings. BREEAM assesses the performance of buildings against a range of environmental requirements by offering different ratings: PASS, GOOD, VERY GOOD, EXCELLENT or OUTSTANDING.
BREEAM's assessment criteria include: energy and water use, indoor environment (health and well-being), pollution, transport, materials, waste, ecology, management processes.
Following the request to bring 4 shopping centers (Tiburtino, Katanè, ESP and Puntadiferro) owned by IGD to BREEAM in Use certification, the Client was assisted in all phases of the project process in order to define, through a rating system, the environmental performance of the various shopping centers and obtain certification.
For the purposes of certification, the appointed BREEAM® Assessor carried out an audit to check and assess the environmental sustainability requirements, assigning a weighted credit score for each of the BREEAM categories.
