The principals of more and more construction projects want to achieve BREEAM-NL certification. BREEAM-NL provides insight into how sustainable the project is. Independent assessors evaluate whether sufficient sustainable performances (credits) have been achieved for awarding the certificate. The Dutch Green Building Council (DGBC) awards projects for designs as well as for the completion of a new building or renovation project.
The benefits of BREEAM-NL:
The assessment method of BREEAM-NL is specified in the BREEAM-NL guidelines. Every credit scores a number of points. A total of more than 100 credits can be obtained, divided into nine main categories, each with its own weighting factor. A BREEAM assessor evaluates whether sufficient points have been scored in the project. The number of stars on the certificate shows the qualification: one star stands for ‘pass’, while five stars indicate ‘outstanding’.
With its products and services, Roma isolatiesystemen contributes to BREEAM-NL certification in the following categories:
Extra points can also be scored for certain categories on the basis of ‘Exemplary Performance’. The degree of energy efficiency for usable area with an industrial function can be set out clearly using the technical checklist for cold stores and freezer warehouses BREEAM-NL ENE 1.
Extra points can also be scored for innovation. One example is meeting the ‘Exemplary Performance’ requirements for a specific category. Another is the use of technologies independently of and supplementary to the prescribed BREEAM performances. This improves sustainability even more. Moreover, it stimulates others to increase the application in the market.
