BREEAM, Waste 5
BREEAM “Adaptation to Climate Change” Waste 5
TWC Consulting continues to push the BREEAM Waste 5 credit on all its newly appointed Assessments.
The aim of this credit is to recognise and encourage measures to mitigate the impact of extreme weather conditions over the lifespan of a building.
The criteria for this issue is as follows;
1. Conduct a climate change adaptation strategy appraisal in relation to the structural and fabric resilience of a building by the end of Concept Design (RIBA Stage 2):
2. Carry out a systematic structural and fabric resilience risk assessment to identify and evaluate the impact of extreme weather conditions arising from climate change focusing on the following areas;
- Hazard identification
- Hazard assessment
- Risk estimation
- Risk evaluation
- Risk management
TWC Consulting considers the Waste 5 credit to be a priority for all project teams due to the value it offers in terms of sustainable building design. By focusing on important factors such as climate change mitigation it is right at the heart of BREEAM and the ethos of sustainable buildings.
