Who Are BRE

Building Research Establishment

  • Established 80 years ago
  • Dedicated to all aspects of the built environment
  • Growing focus on improving environmental performance of buildings

A private enterprise, sponsored by gov’t, in business to make profit through fees

Method

what is an environmental profile
What Is An Environmental Profile?
  • Measurement of the environmental performance of a material, product or system over a set time period (60 years)
    • Extraction of raw materials & transport (“cradle to grave”)
    • Production (“gate to gate”)
    • Transport, installation & end of life (“gate to grave”)
  • Achieved using Life Cycle Assessment Method (LCA)
  • Outcome is 3rd party Environmental Product Declaration (EPD)

BREEAM Ratings – TodayFor the Product

Rating – Soft Floor Coverings

0 1.44 2.85 4.25

Ecopoints per m2

slide12

BREEAM Ratings – TodayFor the Product

Rating – Soft Floor Coverings

0 1.4 2.85 4.25

Ecopoints per m2

Equates to:

6.5 miles by articulated truck

30 miles urban driving

A rating versus BA = 1.4B = 1.5

Difference = 0.1 ecopoints

slide14

BREEAM Building Standards

  • “Construction materials relate to 10% of the total score available within BREEAM 98 for offices”.
slide15

BREEAM Building Standards

  • If the Architect is building to BREEAM standards, what Building Rating are they trying to achieve?PassGoodVery GoodExcellent

All Schools must be rated as a minimum – Very Good

bonar ratings
Bonar Ratings
  • Teviot ‘A’ Rated
  • Apex “A” Rated
  • Silica ‘A’ Rated
  • We are currently awaiting results for Tuftiguard. Coral is being audited w/c 11th August.

The new scheme will employ the same approach but it will create a larger number of subdivisions

The conversion of existing ABC ratings to the new Categories is currently under discussion

be aware
Be Aware…
  • The BREEAM scheme benchmarks us against our competitors.
  • If they improve & we don’t, our rating will decrease
  • This means we have to adopt continuous improvement
how are new products assessed
How Are New Products Assessed
  • A product must be in production 12 months before it can be assessed by BRE (it is possible to be assessed in a 6 month time frame but the result will not be as accurate)
  • An “aged” product is then assessed in the same way as any other product.
  • This can cause a “chicken and egg situation” – you can’t sell your products until you get a rating and you can’t get a rating until you have at least 12 months worth of production.
  • To date we are still pressing BRE to provide a solution for the industry
slide26
BREEAM has been viewed as being a UK scheme. They now refer to themselves as BRE Global – which is aimed at attracting a wider market. It is gaining a foothold in Europe.
  • LEED is the USA version of BREEAM. It is expanding from its North American base and is growing in popularity in the Far East.
  • As our awareness increases and the need to make positive grows, schemes such as BREEAM and LEED, will find increasing favour. However from a manufacturers perspective it is important that the number of schems is kept to a minimum
