Prerequisite for BREEAM AP credits (Concept and Developed Design)

Agreeing on strategic performance targets aims to ensure BREEAM is considered early enough to influence the design and that relevant requirements do not increase the cost due to their late consideration. The project is not penalised if these targets are not met as the BREEAM credits can still be awarded. Justification should, however, be provided explaining the reasons why the targets have not been met.
