BRE launched a new founding member’s initiative for users of the BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment scheme at the Chartered Institute of Housing’s annual conference in Manchester.
Introduced in 2012, BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment provides a design and assessment method for refurbishment projects, aiming to cost effectively improve the sustainability and environmental performance of existing dwellings.
The scheme enables developers, designers and green deal advisors to promote better design and enhance their sustainability credentials. It also helps planners, regulators and asset managers to set standards for more sustainable and higher quality refurbishments.
BRE is currently offering an opportunity for refurbishment professionals to become founding members of the scheme. Members will have a critical influence on the scheme’s future direction and on driving the sustainable refurbishment agenda to meet social, economic and environmental objectives.
The invitation is open to private and social housing providers, housing management companies, architects, contractors, BREEAM assessor organisations and other industry specialists.
