A BREEAM Assessor understands the process and technical issues covered by the scheme for which they must be qualified and licensed. Their role is to interpret the requirements of each issue in relation to a scheme, communicate these requirements to their client and liaise with the project team to collate the evidence which needs to be submitted along with the assessment report.
BREEAM covers a multitude of disciplines and no single Assessor is necessarily a 'technical' expert in all the areas covered by BREEAM. Licensed Assessors are kept up to date with the latest developments in the schemes through a monthly communication direct from BREEAM.
BREEAM Assessors undertake an extensive training course to prepare them for the demanding role of an Assessor. This starts with a general grounding in BREEAM followed by scheme specific top-ups to qualify them in a specific building type. For more information on training to be a BREEAM assessor follow the link in the right side of this page.
BREEAM In-Use Assessors undertake training which gives an introduction to the scheme, the assessment methodology and the certification process, together with evidence gathering and quality assurance.
