Multiple buildings on the same site

The areas of hard landscaping and boundary protection that need to be assessed on a site that contains several developments/buildings depends onΒ the scope of works and scope of the assessment(s) being undertaken.

Essentially, the areas that need to be assessed are all the areas of hard landscaping (as defined within the relevant definitions of the credit issue) and boundary protection within the construction zone (again defined within the relevant definitions) that are within the scope of works of the building under assessment.

Therefore, if all buildings on one site are being assessed in one BREEAM assessment, then the hard landscaping and boundary protection related to all of these building’s scope of works will need to be assessed.

If there are several buildings with individual assessments and their own defined scope of works, then the hard landscaping and boundary protection applicable to the scope of works of each individual building will be assessed for each associated assessment.

The assessment is concerned with the hard landscaping and boundary protection associated to the project under assessment, i.e. the areasΒ under the control of the project under assessment.Β
