Our experience as BREEAM assessors in the healthcare sector enables us to provide the assistance you need to build or refurbish healthcare facilities with high levels of sustainability. Utilising the skills we have acquired over ,many years, we can apply the BREEAM Healthcare assessment methodology to ensure that your development projects will fulfil the requirements set by the Department of Healthcare and the Welsh Health Estates.
We can offer you and your design team the knowledge and expertise you need to construct or reinvigorate projects with the highest BREEAM healthcare assessment ratings whilst meeting the most stringent environmental standards.
About BREEAM Healthcare assessments
BREEAM Healthcare replaced the NHS Environmental Assessment Tool (NEAT). Since July 1, 2008, the Department of Healthcare have started requiring all new builds to achieve an "Excellent" rating under BREEAM as part of the Outline of Business Case approval process. Refurbishments, on the other hand, must earn a "Very Good" rating.
At Encon Associates, our team will ensure that your development projects will meet the requirements outlined above. Using the BREEAM methodology, we will perform evaluations on the buildings that contain medical facilities at any stage of their life cycle, such as:
- New builds
- Major refurbishments
- Existing buildings in operation
