Can you advise on the requirements of BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method)?
We have a new-build GP surgery under way, costing below £2m. The BREEAM site (www.breeam.org) suggests we do not need an assessment but the PCT insists we have a BREEAM pre-assessment and attain an 'excellent' rating.
The cost of this is significant. Must we comply?
