What do I need to know about the BREEAM Land Use and Ecology Section?

The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is the world’s longest established method of assessing, rating and certifying the sustainability of buildings and is increasingly used for development projects in Jersey. Lots more information aout BREEAM can be found here.

There are 9 categories for which credits are awarded, and the total number of credits achieved determines the BREEAM rating for the development (Good, Very Good, Excellent or Outstanding).

What does a BREEAM Assessment involve?

10 credits (10% of the overall total) are available for the Land Use and Ecology section of the assessment, which is broken down into the following sections:

At Nurture Ecology Ltd, we are fully qualified to undertake the necessary ecological surveys, documentation and can advise on how to maximise on the achievable credits under the Land Use and Ecology section of BREEAM


What happens next?

Once the site has been assessed, we will then work with project managers, architects and landscape architects to ensure that considerations for Land Use and Ecology are integrated into the scheme design at an early stage in the development process, in order to minimise ecological impacts and to maximise biodiversity benefits.
