BREEAM UK Non-domestic Refurbishment and Fit-out 2014 now provides the route to assess these buildings. It replaces BREEAM 2008 and 2011 for refurbishment projects and is specifically designed for refurbishment and fit-out projects.
As a top up to your qualification, licensed BREEAM new construction assessors can undertake a 30 hour on-line training course. This will be followed by a one and a half hour exam at BRE Watford.
The new scheme provides opportunities for assessors in the refurbishment and fit-out market. This is due to a modular approach, which allows a flexible yet robust assessment. Projects are assessed against the issues, which they can reasonably influence within their scope of works. All within a scheme that allows comparability and transparency of performance across the property market.
The scheme works directly alongside BREEAM New Construction 2014, allowing the first fit-out of shell only and shell and core projects to gain ‘Fully fitted’ certification under the New Construction 2014 scheme.
Our goal is to deliver high calibre, informative and engaging content that will develop delegates into knowledgeable and capable assessors. BREEAM Refurbishment and fit-out delegates will be immersed into blended online learning, delivered through online workshops, interactive discussions, with a final exam for certification. Upon the successful completion of this process, they will be fully qualified BREEAM Non-domestic Refurbishment assessors. To become licensed, assessors are required to hold professional indemnity insurance.

This is a self-directed study programme – a fast track route to qualification, and is entirely self taught. If you would prefer the opportunity to ask questions and gain a thorough understanding from trainers, the full course would be of more benefit as this is not available within this existing assessor top up course.
Current licensed BREEAM UK New Construction Non Domestic assessors
Please note: If you qualified in New Construction before 2008, it is recommended that you complete the full course – as you will be examined on the full scope of public, commercial, bespoke and multi-residential. This will provide you with the best opportunity to achieve your qualification.
This top-up fast track option has been designed to reduce the cost and time impact to business, and is ideal for those who are confident in self-learning and taking examinations, having kept up to date with the latest changes in all licensing sectors for UK New Construction.
On successful completion of the course and the examinations you will be issued with notification that verifies your BREEAM Assessor qualification. You will then be required to apply to BRE Global Ltd to become a Licenced BREEAM Assessor under the Scheme in order to practice. You must make this application within 12 months of completing the course.
To practice as a licenced BREEAM Assessor you will be required to pay an annual licence fee and hold adequate levels of professional insurance, particularly professional indemnity insurance. Further information on the route to becoming a licenced BREEAM Assessor can be found at www.breeam.com
