At Encon Associates, we give our clients the opportunity to appoint our team as their BREEAM assessors and sustainability champion . Our highly qualified and accredited sustainability and environmental design specialists can operate in a collaborative role, which will include a BREEAM Sustainability Champion (formerly an Accredited Professional or BREEAM AP).
By appointing Encon Associates as your BREEAM Sustainability Champion, your company’s design team will be able to obtain additional credits. These extra credits are usually only afforded to schemes where our experienced consultants guide and lead the BREEAM process from RIBA Stage 1/2 onwards.
About the Sustainability Champion Role
One of the vital roles of a qualified Sustainability Champion (previously known as an Accredited Professional AP) is to enable clients and design teams to reach their recommended BREEAM rating. They will also help maximise the sustainability opportunities throughout a development project from an early stage.
In fact, a Sustainability Champion’s timely input and expert advice can have a considerable impact on the success and sustainability of your project. One of the advantages is that they can help you avoid making mistakes that could cause delays or huge expenses at your end. This is one of the primary reasons why we highly recommend that you appoint a Sustainability Champion early in the design process, ideally during RIBA Stage 0–2 or the Concept Design phase.
At Encon Associates, one element of our BREEAM AP services is to participate in the key design team meetings and offer advice as required. This ensures that you will meet all your BREEAM targets. Our team will also provide you with the knowledge and assistance you need to improve your chances of receiving three (3) credits or 1.56 % against the BREEAM overall score under BREEAM 2018 NC, or three(3) credits or 1.71% under BREEAM 2014 NC.
If you have already chosen a BREEAM assessor, there’s no need to worry. We will still be able to help you. In addition to our assessment services, we also offer standalone BREEAM accredited professional services for companies with existing assessors.
You will be pleased to know that all our BREEAM APs are also qualified BREEAM assessors. As such, they can integrate and collaborate with your current design team in the smoothest and most efficient way possible to ensure the success of your development project.
BREEAM AP for Environmental Credits
Building a development project that is sustainable and environmentally friendly is indeed a noble and worthy undertaking. However, in order to meet your targets and achieve the results you desire, it would be beneficial to seek the assistance of sustainability and environmental design experts who are also qualified BREEAM AP service providers.
