BREEAM Code for Sustainable Homes Somerset

Ecological Impact Assessment: BREEAM / Code for Sustainable Homes

Richard Green Ecology meet strict criteria for ‘suitably qualified ecologists’ and can produce ecological reports to inform BREEAM/CSH assessments. 

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method) and the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH - formerly Ecohomes) are the standard tools for assessing environmental sustainability of new developments.

In both BREEAM and CSH assessments, points are available under a range of categories, including Ecology. The performance of the development is then assessed against each of these categories and an overall score awarded depending on the number of points achieved.

We can work with you in order to maximise the number of credits that can be awarded for Ecology. As this is best done at the earliest stages of design, we recommend that you contact us at the earliest opportunity.
