The requirements of Rsl 04 aim to minimize the frequency of building component replacement. Options D, E and F relate to specific features that are vulnerable to damage through the building’s operation. Therefore, if it can be demonstrated that an asset does not include any such features, this requirement can be considered met, because there is nothing to protect.
Evidence confirming the above must be referenced and provided in the assessment.
It is unlikely that Option C will not apply in a commercial asset. However, if an assessor believes this to be the case, they should contact BREEAM Technical with full details and justification.
