The VE can assist with the delivery of many BREEAM credits providing a valuable contribution to the overall BREEAM rating. 

Our team of skilled and experienced Consultants can actively assist the design team by providing advice on how building design can maximise the potential for credits to be achieved as part of the road map to the desired BREEAM rating.

Using the IES Virtual Environment software suite, we can test various design scenarios to undertake: 

  • BREEAM Accredited Professional services
  • Daylighting Modelling & Analysis
  • Thermal Comfort Modelling & Analysis
  • Energy Modelling & Analysis (Ene 01)
  • Material & Product Selection

IES Consulting can provide standalone BREEAM Accredited Professional services for clients who already have a BREEAM Assessor appointed. Our BREEAM AP’s are well versed with the BREEAM assessment methodology and can integrate within the existing design team smoothly and efficiently. The BREEAM Accredited Professional qualification recognises specialist skills in sustainability and environmental design combined with a high level of competence in the BREEAM assessment process.

We can use the VE to assess credits across a wide range of BREEAM rating systems and have collaborated on many BREEAM projects across both new construction and existing. 

IES Consulting’s capabilities and methodologies have been developed over many years and proven on a wide range of innovative, high-profile projects worldwide. Our expertise covers the UK and International versions of the system and we are very well placed to support any scale of project. As such, we have the ability to assess the following credits across numerous BREEAM Schemes:
