BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) is a method of evaluation and sustainable certification of the building, widely recognized internationally. Since its launch in 1990, has certified more than 270,000 buildings, nowadays, it is present in more than 63 countries around the world.
BREEAM analyzes a series of science-based criteria that comprises a set of requirements grouped into categories to evaluate the use of energy and water, health and wellness, pollution, transport, materials, waste, land use, ecology and management processes. Buildings are classified and certified according to a scale : «PASS», «GOOD», «VERY GOOD», «EXCELLENT» and «OUTSTANDING».
Compliance with the standards required by BREEAM needs careful planning, design, specification and accuracy, plus a good working relationship between the client and the project team. The use of BREEAM as a tool throughout the project can also facilitate innovation which will lead to potential cost savings and the incorporation of added value through constructing better buildings and to improve conditions for its users.
BIM6D develops designs and evaluates projects aimed at achieving the best possible certification, for this, we assess the needs of the project, we simulate building behavior and perform strategies, in coordination with the different teams involved in the project.
Developing BIM methodology in its sixth dimension, BIM6D generates analytical models for energy simulations, we analyze many aspects to be considered in the face certification faced to get the BREEAM certification. We make comparisons between different design options to facilitate the decision-making and link the results and information related to efficiency and certification in BIM processes in an integrated approach.
