BREEAM Communities 2012 is targeted at neighbourhood scale developments. It aims to help the design team, developers and planners to improve, measure and independently certify the sustainability of a large scale development at the design and planning stage. The scheme influences sustainability at the early stages of project development through community engagement, site strategy and implementation in design. This can lead into BREEAM assessments of buildings and homes.
This 3 day course is broken down into two modules. The first module (day one) is an introduction and overview of BREEAM Communities 2012. It is suitable for planning officers, consultants and developers who want to understand the scheme and how to use it. Module 1 may be attended as a stand-alone training day. The second module (days two and three) covers the technical content of the scheme and detailed information about the process of assessment and certification. Both the first and second modules are required for delegates who aim to become a BREEAM Communities Assessor. To become licensed, assessors are required to hold professional indemnity insurance. For more information please see our FAQ page.
The training session is based on a combination of presentations and interactive workshops. There are no pre-requisites to becoming an assessor. An interest or active involvement in the delivery of large scale developments and masterplans is helpful. This course is open to UK and international delegates. International delegates must have a very good understanding of written and spoken English.
This scheme uses calculation tools which run in MS Excel with macros. Macintosh computers are unable to use this function and you will need access to a PC to complete assessments.
