BREEAM In-Use is an assessment and certification scheme issued by regulatory body BRE, used to demonstrate the environmental credentials of non-domestic buildings. It’s not a legal planning requirement but is a valuable benchmark to show your asset is at its optimal performance.

Benefits of BREEAM In-Use
We work organisations like yours to achieve the desired BREEAM rating
What we do...
We partner with you to prepare for your BREEAM In-Use assessment. Our pre-certification audit will take a detailed look at your building, including taking photographs, collecting documentary evidence and filling in a comprehensive questionnaire.
As a result of the evaluation we present you with a report showing areas that need to be improved. Sustainability data on your asset is benchmarked against 10 BREEAM In-Use key performance indicators.
As independent BRE Global licensed BREEAM In-Use auditors we will verify the improvements have been completed once the work is done and request the formal certification.
What is BREEAM In-Use
BREEAM In-Use is an online international environmental assessment methodology for independent, third-party assessment and certification of the building’s operational performance. The standard enables property investors, owners, managers and occupiers to drive sustainable improvements through operational efficiency, including how to continually manage the operation of their building effectively.
BREEAM In-Use examines and asks questions about environmental issues that affect large non-domestic buildings. These are:
Land use and ecology
Energy and greenhouse gas emissions
The scheme is designed to drive sustainability improvements in buildings and is divided into three sections:
Part 1 - Asset performance
Part 2 – Management Performance
The operations and management of the asset.
