Unoccupied spaces

Buildings that have no spaces occupied for more than 30 mins at any given time, e.g. multi-storey car parks, storage spaces, WCs, etc, cannot be assessed under BREEAM as stand alone assessments. However, they can contribute to achieving compliance with certain criteria, when associated to a larger building.

Multi-storey car parks may be assessed against the Civil Engineering Quality Assessment and Award Scheme (CEEQUAL). Please see for further information.

BREEAM is used for the assessment of buildings that are designed to be occupied.
