Rating Green

From BREEAM to the WELL BuildingStandard – a review of Environmental Certification Schemes and Assessment Methods.

The need for sustainable design, energy efficiency and healthy, comfortable working environments is generally well documented and acknowledged, but when it comes to delivering commercial property is ‘Capex still King’?
What is the legislation? – and if we are not required to, what value is there in pinning a green badge on our building? From funders, developers, agents to landlords and end users – what are the priorities across the range of development stakeholders?
New build development represents a small fraction of the commercial property estate – what about refurbishment and fit-out works – do environmental assessment methods address these schemes too?

Our second Cambridge BCO Group talk will consider the above issues and present current best practice surrounding green rating systems, followed by informal discussion with our speakers.
