BRE is an innovative group of researchers, scientists, engineers and technicians who share a common goal – to make the built environment better for all. They generate new knowledge through independent research. This is used to create the products, standards and qualifications that help to ensure buildings, homes and communities are safe, efficient, productive, sustainable and enjoyable places to be. Their customers use their expertise and services to deliver social, environmental and economic goals.
BRE has been raising the standards of the built environment since 1921. Their multi-disciplinary teams include leading experts – working in world-class facilities – in virtually every element of the built environment. BRE is part of the BRE Trust, which uses their profits to fund new research and education programmes.
As part of their long-term commitment to Ireland they have now established BRE Global Assurance Ireland which will be providing testing and certification services from their location in Dublin as well as delivering training programmes.
