About BREEAM Multi-Residential Assessments
Residential developments differ enormously depending on the brief of the scheme and cannot always fit the standard Code for Sustainable Homes methodology.
BREEAM Multi-residential offers a bespoke version which is tailor made to suit your individual development type.
The methodology looks at communal services and the management of communal areas within buildings such as catering facilities, lounges, dining rooms, health and leisure areas, offices, meeting rooms and other support areas, for example laundries
Buildings that may be assessed under BREEAM Multi-residential are typically:
- Student halls of residence/Key worker accommodation
- Sheltered housing for the elderly
- Supported housing for mentally/physically disabled persons
- Hostel type accommodation (such as for the homeless, women's refuges etc.)
