A BREEAM Excellent concrete building

This breakfast briefing provides guidance on the latest version of BREEAM 2014 New Construction, with particular reference to the use of concrete.

There will be a focus on the newly added credits including those associated with adaptation to climate change; material efficiency, and durability and resilience.

An overview will also be provided on scoring credits for reduction of energy use and carbon emissions, and material ratings in the green guide and use of recycled aggregates.
