Sustainable transport measures – Shell only and shell & core assessments

Assessment option 3 “Public transport information system”

A public transport information system may not be in the scope of works for a shell only or shell & core assessment.

In such cases, this measure is not available, however points can be achieved through demonstrating compliance with alternative options in this issue.

If it does fall within the scope of works, this measure is still available.

Assessment option 4 “Electric Vehicle recharging stations”

For shell only and shell & core assessments it is permissible to demonstrate compliance through provision of all necessary infrastructure required for future installation of compliant electric recharging stations.

BREEAM recognises that full installation of recharging terminals may be outside the scope of shell only and shell & core stages.

Assessment option 5 “Car Sharing”

For speculative shell only and shell & core assessments, measures 5.7 and 5.8 might not be achievable. Where this is demonstrated and justified, the one point available for this option can be achieved through compliance with measures 5.9 & 5.10 only.

Where the building occupier is not known, project teams are unable to influence the implementation phase of a car sharing scheme.
