LCC – Competent person

The technical manual provides the following definition:

Competent person
An individual who has acquired substantial expertise or a recognised qualification for undertaking life cycle costing studies and is not professionally connected to a single manufacturer.

It is the responsibility of the assessor to determine whether an individual meets this definition, and they must provide evidence and justification (if necessary) in their assessment.

BREEAM does not approve or hold a list of competent LCC practitioners.
