By successfully completing this training course, you will qualify as a BREEAM AP (Design & Site). Candidates who wish to focus on site-based BREEAM activities should take the BREEAM AP (Site) course. The BREEAM AP pathways and training options are illustrated in this flow chart. On this course, you will learn the role of the AP and understand what a development needs to do in order to meet BREEAM targets and sustainability goals. You’ll learn how to facilitate project teams to schedule activities, set priorities and negotiate the trade-offs required to achieve the target BREEAM rating when the development is formally assessed. On completion of this training course, you’ll be eligible to apply for a BREEAM AP subscription. As a BREEAM AP, you can help and advise developments to achieve up to six BREEAM credits (dependent on the types of schemes). The qualification and annual membership recognise an individual’s ability to provide expert advice on how projects should achieve their sustainability goals and performance.

SABRE

Introduction to SABRE

SABRE inspires property designers, developers, owners and occupiers to adopt a systematic, risk-based approach to security in and around their built assets. This makes the return on investment in security much more visible, quantifiable and justifiable, whilst enabling security to become better integrated into a building’s design, construction and operation. This course provides an overview of the built asset life cycle stages SABRE can cover, the assessment process and timeline, and the key principles of certification that ensure the reliability, impartiality and comparability of a SABRE rating to give added value to your any project or operational facility. The course finally summarises the benefits that SABRE assessment and certification can bring to a range of stakeholders. N.B. BRE Global (incorporating LPCB and SABRE) is a CPD partner of the Security Institute. Therefore, this course is worth double points to those demonstrating Continual Professional Development through the Security Institute’s learning platform. This course is intended to last 1 hour, and as such is worth 2 Security Institute CPD points.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this short course you will be able to:
  • Identify the benefits of using SABRE;
  • Understand the scheme structure and how it applies at each stage of a built asset’s lifecycle;
  • Identify the role of the SABRE Assessor;
  • Understand how a project or built asset is assessed and rated in SABRE; and
  • Understand the importance of certification.

Is it right for me?

This course is ideal for anyone looking to understand what SABRE is about and forms a foundation for further training in SABRE. Those interested in becoming a SABRE Assessor should contact sabre@bre.co.uk.

Requirements

Mat 01 Explained

The quantification and reduction of environmental impacts through building LCA (life cycle assessment) is becoming increasingly relevant as operational energy-related impacts decrease, and embodied impacts across all life cycles. Mat 01 in the BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 scheme requires the use of building LCA to determine the impacts associated with the construction products specified for a new building. However many in the construction industry are unfamiliar with LCA and this can deter project teams from seeking to demonstrate performance against the latest Mat 01 criteria. This e-learning module introduces the scope, approaches and timing of LCA for UKNC 2018 assessment and pulls together guidance produced by BRE Global in an easy-to-follow format to help assessors better advise design teams and clients on the Mat 01 requirements.

Learning Objectives

Scope of Mat 01 Assessment approaches and impact on scoring:
  • Comparison with BREEAM benchmark
  • Options appraisal
Assessment stages LCA tools:
  • Tutorial: BREEAM Simplified LCA tool.
  • Tutorial: Obtaining results using the Mat 01 results submission tool.
Practical examples and tips

Is it right for me?

This module is aimed at licensed BREEAM assessors who are trained in the BREEAM UK New Construction schemes UKNC 2018, however it may be helpful for design team members or client teams familiar with the requirements of BREEAM, and who are involved in targeting UKNC 2018 Mat 01 credits to also view this module.

Requirements

There are no pre-requisites for this course, however, this is primarily aimed at BREEAM assessors, therefore an understanding of BREEAM terminology, operation and requirements is recommended.
