BREEAM is an internationally recognized assessment method to determine the sustainability of buildings. With the growing attention for sustainability, this certificate is becoming more important for developers, investors and real estate owners. But also for companies that want to lease only sustainable real estate. Do you want a BREEAM certificate? Our BREEAM experts will happily discuss the possibilities.
Our BREEAM experts start by analysing your situation. Why do you want to certify? What is your ambition? Is that achievable? Together we determine where and how the most certification points can be achieved at the lowest cost. In newly built real estate, we also look at the design and whether it meets the assessment criteria. We then draw up an action plan for the necessary adjustments. For the technical aspects we have an extensive network of partners. The process is concluded with the actual certification by an independent assessor.
