Excluding applications from assessment

Where a structural engineer has┬ádetermined that recycled or secondary aggregate┬ácannot be used in line with the criteria┬áfor a particular application, or where they will not allow the minimum BREEAM level to be used, that application can be excluded from the assessment. Where the engineer allows some content to be used, this percentage must still be┬áspecified in the excluded application.┬áThe engineer’s decision must be suitably justified (for example following the BS8500 series and associated standards) and must be provided as evidence for the BREEAM assessment.
