Abstract

In the twenty one years since its inception BREEAM has become the leading environmental benchmark in the UK. There are now a considerable number of buildings with BREEAM credentials, the researchers have carried out a short study to determine whether the credits achieved, (or not achieved) have had an effect on the occupiers of a sample of buildings. The research focuses on the health and wellbeing of staff and notes that gaining a BREEAM credit does not necessarily mean that the working environment is acceptable in relation to that measure. The investigation also examines maintenance issues as regards innovative features of the building. It concludes that there is a considerable variation in the benefits of BREEAM credits to building occupiers.
