Currently there aren’t any case studies on costs associated with undertaking HQM assessments. This is something we expect to become available once more projects have gone through the HQM process.
As with other schemes within the BREEAM family, costs will partly depend on the targeted rating. A one star home represents a home that is better than one that meets the minimum requirements set by building regulations and a five star rating is an outstanding development that goes well beyond standard practice, as with BREEAM.
The BRE Global fees (current – May’16 and new -valid from 1st Jul’17 ) for HQM registrations and certifications is available on BREEAM Projects under BRE Global Fee Sheet.
