About BREEAM 2008 Assessments
BREEAM 2008 is an assessment method superseded by both BREEAM 2011 and 2014, however many projects have been pre-registered under this scheme or have a contractual requirement to be delivered using this methodology. Encon Associates are experienced in assessing in these circumstances, however in order for a BREEAM assessor to assess under the BREEAM 2008 methodology the scheme will need to be pre-registered or contractual evidence will need to be provided indicating BREEAM 2008.
The BREEAM 2008 assessment methodology is very similar to the previous 2006 version, however this iteration introduced a mandatory two stage assessment process meaning that a project cannot meet formal BREEAM accreditation without fulfilling the Post Construction Stage, in addition credit updates were included to make the assessment more robust.
