BREEAM Domestic Refurb Scheme

BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment is a design and assessment method for sustainable domestic refurbishment projects, helping to improve the sustainability and environmental performance of existing dwellings in a robust way.

The scheme allows developers, designers and Green Deal advisors to demonstrate their environmental credentials, promote better design and give confidence to their customers.

The scheme evaluates the environmental credentials of refurbishment projects based upon BREEAM’s UKAS accredited certification standards already applied to over 200,000 buildings around the world.

It is also designed to help planners, regulators and asset managers (e.g. Registered Social Landlords) to set standards for refurbishment, and provides a market-focused label for more sustainable and higher quality refurbishments.

The BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment assessment manual (320 pages) is now publicly available for download 320 pages. It covers Management, Health and Wellbeing, Energy, Water, Materials, Pollution, Waste, Innovation.
