BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 Launches at Ecobuild

13 March, 2018, by dazbert

Tracker Plus activated BREEAM 2018 UK New Construction last Wednesday to coincide with the 3-day Ecobuild exhibition, and the BRE’s own launch of the new scheme, confirming our place as the leading BREEAM online management tool and our commitment and support of our T+ users.

The new BREEAM scheme has more distinction between different fit-outs of buildings; shell only, shell and core, fully fitted and simple buildings. There have also been some significant changes to the Energy, Transport, Materials and Ecology sections since the 2014 scheme.

As well as the launch of the new 2018 scheme, there was of course lots to see and do at the 3-day event at the Excel in London. It was great to see so many people in attendance, as well as a wide range of companies exhibiting their commitment to a more sustainable industry. We would also like to congratulate the following Tracker Plus users for winning an award:

  • Max Fordham for Tiger Way Primary School and Nursery – Public Project Design category winner
  • AECOM for GSK Centre for Sustainable Chemistry – Public Project Post-Construction category winner

We’re looking forward to seeing more sustainable buildings going above and beyond in 2019!

BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 Coming Soon to Tracker Plus!

28 February, 2018, by dazbert

The BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 scheme is just around the corner, so we thought we’d highlight some of the changes we think you’d like to know about.

  • The BUG is no longer a mandatory requirement, however if you are going to produce one under Man04, 2 will now be required – one for technical and one for non-technical users. The same is applicable for the training schedule.
  • The IAQ for Hea02 will now be a pre-requisite to achieve credits under this issue.
  • Hea03 Safe Containment in Laboratories is no longer assessed as a separate issue within this scheme.
  • A new Hea07 Safe and Healthy Surroundings issue is introduced. The aim is to encourage the provision of safe access around the site and outdoor space that enhances the wellbeing of building users. The safe access requirements you are familiar with under Hea06 will be encompassed in Hea07.
  • The transport section has been revamped, with Tra01 addressing the transport assessment and travel plan, and Tra02 Sustainable Transport Measures – up to 10 credits are available based on the number of sustainable options available. There are no other issues within this section.
  • Mat01 encompasses the previous hard landscaping and boundary protection issue, with 6 credits available for the superstructure, and 1 for substructure and landscaping.
  • Mat02 Environmental Impacts from Construction Products is an addition where 1 credit can be awarded for EPDs.
  • Mat04 Insulation is no longer assessed as a separate issue within this scheme.
  • Wst01 will have an additional credit available for the pre-demolition audit.
  • The ecology section focuses more on long term positive impacts that the development has on the site and its surroundings. 13 credits are available in total, with 2 different routes to achieving them. Route 1 is for more simple projects; route 2 is for more complex projects and will require appointment of an SQE.
  • Pol02 Local Air Quality moves away from a sole focus on NOx emissions and looks to address general local air quality.

We will be launching the 2018 scheme on Tracker Plus in March to coincide with the BRE’s launch.

Tracker Plus & BRE Joint Statement

31 January, 2017, by Ben Cartmell

Another first for BREEAM, thanks to Tracker Plus

Southfacing and BRE have teamed-up to offer assessors and clients greater efficiencies in the way they assess and certify the sustainability performance of their assets using BREEAM.

The collaboration has resulted in the first online dynamic syncing of assessment data between the Tracker Plus (www.tracker-plus.co.uk) and BRE’s BREEAM Projects (www.breeam.com/projects). This enables an assessor, through Tracker Plus, to manage the whole assessment process seamlessly, from pre-assessment through to final submission to BRE for certification. BREEAM UK Refurbishment & Fit-out 2014 is the first scheme to go live with the blue print set for future schemes!

“We are all very excited. Collaboration and digital solutions are key enablers in the BRE mission to build a better world and this solution will deliver efficiencies for Tracker Plus users, clients and stakeholders involved in the assessment process.” Tim Bevan, Director of BREEAM Operations, BRE.

“Now Tracker Plus can synchronise its assessment project management directly with submissions via BREEAM Projects the process is seamless and more efficient for all.” Ben Cartmell, Director, Southfacing.

 

Southfacing are recruiting: If you are an experienced BREEAM assessor please email us your CV.
