BREEAM is the world’s leading sustainability assessment method for masterplanning projects, infrastructure and buildings. It recognises and reflects the value in higher performing assets across the built environment lifecycle, from new construction to in-use and refurbishment.

BREEAM does this through third party certification of the assessment of an asset’s environmental, social and economic sustainability performance, using standards developed by BRE. This means BREEAM-rated developments are more sustainable environments that enhance the well-being of the people who live and work in them, help protect natural resources and make for more attractive property investments.

GRESB is the international membership organisation that assesses the sustainability performance of real estate asset sector portfolios and assets. It provides its members with data, scorecards, benchmark reports and portfolio analysis tools.

As the internationally-recognised measure of sustainability for buildings and communities, BREEAM is used worldwide as a standard for driving sustainable change across the built environment. With ecobuild sharing fresh thinking, innovative technologies and materials focusing on the sustainability agenda, the alignment of the two events represents a natural sharing of goals by two like-minded, influential organisations.

“We are delighted to announce that the 2018 BREEAM Awards has partnered with ecobuild,” commented Gavin Dunn at BREEAM. “The two brands have so much synergy, each playing their part in helping companies, senior professionals and influencers across property, architecture, construction and engineering, demonstrate best practice through sustainability.”

“Since the 2017 event, we’ve started a dialogue with industry to get their feedback and help us deliver what people want and need from an event,” commented ecobuild Managing Director, Martin Hurn. “ecobuild 2018 will bring together the most innovative brands, speakers and experiences and provide them with thought-provoking, valuable content and an unparalleled opportunity for sharing ideas, networking and relationship building.

“In partnering and co-hosting with the BREEAM Awards we are further demonstrating that we are putting sustainability back at the core of the show.”

This year’s awards will be made up of two streams. The first is for professional champions covering architectural leadership, M&E leadership, and assessors. The second is projects, which will be broken down into commercial, public and homes.

As part of the event GRESB, the European leaders in assessment of the ESG performance of worldwide real estate assets and investments, will present awards for responsible investment.

The awards will take place on the evening of the first day of ecobuild – Tuesday 6th March – in the Platinum Suite at ExCeL. The award winners and shortlisted projects will also be showcased throughout the ecobuild show in a dedicated awards gallery, which will surround the show’s central conference arena.

BREEAM Awards 2008


BRE Global is delighted to announce that they will be presenting awards for all building sectors at the 2008 UK BREEAM Awards to be held at the 100% Detail exhibition in September.

The categories will include: Bespoke; Industrial; Offices; Multi-Residential; Retail; and Schools. BRE Global will also be presenting special BREEAM awards acknowledging commitment to sustainability through the use of BREEAM.

Martin Townsend, BREEAM Director said: “We are delighted to see that this years awards will include the first BREEAM Excellent rated schools, retail and multi-residential buildings and we look forward to presenting awards to these top scoring buildings in these categories.

“This is an important time for the construction industry. Sustainability and environmental issues are paramount and the BREEAM Awards provide examples and reassurance to industry that high sustainability standards can and are being achieved.

“One major difference with these awards is their environmental achievement is quantifiable against defined and recognisable environmental categories”.

The Awards ceremony on September 18 will be complemented by a number of free seminars spanning the four days of the 100% Detail exhibition, focusing on BREEAM and exciting new developments.
