BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. BREEAM standards are now imposed by most UK planning authorities and also voluntarily by many commercial property funds and national operators.

Envision is a leading BREEAM Assessment organisation and can support projects with all types of BREEAM assessment, including; BREEAM New Construction, BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment, BREEAM Non-Domestic Refurbishment and BREEAM In-Use, alongside the Home Quality Mark (HQM). We take a pro-active approach to asset assessment and support development projects with close and tailored support.  Our pragmatic and hands-on approach means that we are retained by the largest UK property funds, publicly listed developers, property agents as well as international retailers.

Envision are registered BREEAM Communities assessors and work with teams to embed sustainability principles during masterplanning and urban regeneration projects. Envision has helped shape a number of strategic schemes in the UK using BREEAM Communities.

Envision is one of a small number of consultancies that are able to offer BREEAM Infrastructure assessments. As experts in sustainable infrastructure, Envision have worked with the BRE to help shape the development of the new infrastructure assessment. We apply this to major infrastructure projects wishing to take a leading role on the way in which sustainable design and construction is planned and delivered in nationally significant infrastructure.

Envision provides BREEAM throughout a project’s lifecycle, including BREEAM Pre Assessments, BREEAM Design Stage and Post Construction Reviews. We are also able to provide Post Occupancy Evaluation and BREEAM In-Use.
