Description

Ecology is one of a series of key categories included across the BREEAM family of schemes, which relate to master planning, infrastructure and buildings. The Ecology category encourages project teams to identify ecologically valuable features and opportunities to protect and enhance habitats and to mitigate unavoidable impacts. It also seeks to improve long-term biodiversity management practices and strategies for assessed sites and associated areas.

Whilst the coverage of ecology in BREEAM has evolved since it was added to the scheme in 1993, the aims of the issues and assessment criteria that form the basis of BREEAM’s reward mechanism (awarding credits) had remained broadly consistent since 1998.

BRE Global has worked with a wide range of stakeholders, including the UK Green Building Council, professional bodies such as Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (CIEEM) and the Landscape Institute, plus a range of consultants, developers, designers, constructors, managers and policymakers with the overall objective of identifying a consistent strategic framework for evaluating ecology-related issues across BREEAM.

Work has been ongoing to implement BREEAM’s Strategic Ecology Framework (see here for more information) across its family of schemes used in the UK.

This webinar will summarise the background to the development of the SEF, provide an overview of the update set up ecology assessment issues developed as a result and that is now available in the BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 scheme and the other schemes in the BREEAM family as these are updated. We will also review the practical application of the assessment issues and explore their feasibility and possible approaches in different situations.
