This workshop provides an overview to the BREEAM assessment system looking at the core headings of energy, transport, water, materials, pollution and health and well being. It identifies quick wins and the best solutions from a whole life-cycle analysis using actual case studies. The workshop also identifies how early use of a BREEAM assessor, careful attention to management of the whole build process, and a building performance assessment after handover, will significantly help to ensure a sustainable building.
