First published Monday 15 April 2013

The Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method, or BREEAM, has been developed as a best practice scorecard for the construction of ‘Green’ buildings of all types. Assessment is made on the perceived lifecycle of the building from inception to the potential and ultimate building demolition, and even beyond to account for responsible recycling of demolition waste.

BREEAM provides for an all embracing, and holistic approach to design and construction within the built environment. The guest on the podcast this week is Martin Townsend who is Director of BREEAM at the Building Reseach Establishment. He revisits some of the questions that were unfortunately lost when I first interviewed himat Ecobuild earlier this year, and answers a whole lot more in the first of a two part look into the beginnings of BREEAM, its development, and where it might be going in the future.
