The Solution

Encon Associates were commissioned as BREEAM Assessor to carry out a Shell & Core BREEAM Retail Assessment, required to mitigate the planning conditions, and also to provide other services to meet BREEAM compliance including Green Lease Agreement and Green Building Guide.

Encon Associates BREEAM Assessors started work on Block A & B in order to establish what was required to meet the planning obligations and to also ensure the BREEAM Retail target and tight deadline could be met. 

Further work on the BREEAM Green Lease Agreement was carried out to compile a specification which was to be adopted by the eventual tenants of the buildings, therefore achieving BREEAM Retail compliance.
