Completing the ‘initial details’ section of the BREEAM RFO pre-assessment or full assessment tool ensures that the appropriate issues and credits are filtered in or out of the assessment, depending on the project scope. This means that the weightings are also adjusted accordingly, so that the building environmental sections weightings’ total always remains at 100%.
The BREEAM RFO weightings given in the relevant Table of the ‘Environmental section weightings’ section of the guidance, are for common projects types, purely as a starting guide and can be expected to vary significantly for real projects, depending on the applicability of issues and credits.
