BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment Assessment
The refurbishment of existing domestic buildings, or the conversions of existing buildings to residential use, regardless of its prior use, now requires a BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment assessment. This scheme has replaced the now defunct Ecohomes assessment and reflects the unique nature of building a home to the standard required by the planning authorities and the drive towards more sustainable homes whilst recognising the difficulties working around the existing fabric.
The BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment Scheme was only introduced in 2012 and NuPlanet Sustainable Solutions where one of the first in the country to qualify to carry out this type of assessment, this means we have more experience than most. We will not only carry out your assessment, but we will also help and advise you on the best way to achieve the rating you need to make your project a success.
NuPlanet are also qualified SAP assessors which is an important part of the BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment Assessment. This puts us ideally placed to provide forward thinking builders, developers and architects with a full environmental service.
We have developed a selection of information sheets to help guide you through current requirements.
