What do you need to know about BREEAM domestic refurbishments?

A BDR is a government rated assessment used to firmly evaluate the environmental credentials of a property: its energy, water, materials, pollution and waste management will all be considered, among other things. A standard assessment covers 9 categories and 34 subsections!

The scheme was introduced as a way to reduce the environmental impact of existing buildings undergoing domestic conversions, refurbishments, extensions or change-of-use developments. It can also cover several dwellings at once, as well as regeneration schemes aimed at revitalising a dwelling.

The assessor will start off by examining the current state of a dwelling and finish by presenting the client with a rating. This rating can be a pass (30%), good (45%), very good (55%), excellent (70%) or outstanding (85%).

Whether or not a domestic refurbishment project will require this kind of assessment will mainly depend on location. Certain local authorities require sustainability appraisals as standard when organising a home improvement project. At the same time, many homeowners and developers book BDR assessments voluntarily; having a way to promote the sustainable design of a building can be extremely useful when dealing with potential buyers and renters. The results of a BDR can also help a developer to improve the environmental credentials of their project.
