ZEB Certification Consultation
BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognizes and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment. ZEB ESCO will soon be one of the BREEAM International New Construction Assessor:
a) BREEAM International New Construction Assessor
BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for master planning projects, infrastructure and buildings.
Through third party certification of the assessment of an asset’s sustainability performance, BREEAM recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle. This means BREEAM rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them and make for more attractive property investment.
b) Energy Prediction and Verification
The setting of an overall energy performance target at the design stage and subsequent verification against measured energy consumption is a key element of the methodology. The performance targets are not determined by scheme specific benchmarks, but are based on the results of the detailed energy modelling.
The aim of ZEB ESCO
Encourage- Continuous performance improvement and innovation by setting and assessing against a broad range of scientifically rigorous requirements that go beyond current regulations and practice.
Empower- Those who own, commission, deliver, manage or use buildings, infrastructure or communities to achieve their sustainability aspirations.
Build Confidence and Value- By providing independent certification that demonstrates the wider benefits to individuals, business, society and the environment.
