GN33- Evidence requirement clarification

In Guidance Note 33, BREEAM recognised responsible construction schemes are mapped against the ‘Responsible construction management’ criteria within the manual, in order to determine the degree of comparability. Table 2 in GN33 provides a mapping of the recognised schemes, the relevant scores and the BREEAM items ‘a-s’ which are achieved.

Where items in the table have been ‘ticked’, the only evidence that is required is confirmation of the formal certification under the relevant scheme, in addition to the evaluation report. No further information is required to achieve these items.

Where an item in the table has been ‘crossed’, this means that either, the responsible construction scheme does not demonstrate compliance with that BREEAM item, or that the score achieved is not high enough to confirm compliance with the item. Where a cross exists against an item, additional evidence will be required to demonstrate compliance with those items, (where credits are sought).
