How is building performance measured?
The BREEAM In-Use assessment operates entirely online with unverified scores produced instantaneously. The secure online system allows clients to describe the asset’s performance in nine categories including Energy, Water, Transport, Management, Waste, Pollution, Health & Well-Being, Land Use & Ecology and Materials. Users can complete the BREEAM In-Use performance measurement section by section with the ability to see the results immediately. The Performance Measurement is available for up to one year with asset registration to allow clients, owners, managers or teams to continually refine the answers or to improve the performance of the building and update the answers before certification.
