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 the BREEAM Awards is their environmental achievement is quantifiable against defined and recognisable environmental categories".
The Awards ceremony on the 18th September will be complemented by a number of free seminars spanning the 4 days of the 100% Detail exhibition, focussing on BREEAM and exciting new developments including:
- An Introduction to BREEAM 2008 including information on new initiatives; BREEAM Energy Star, BREEAM Communities and BREEAM In-Use
- The Code for Sustainable Homes
- New schemes including BREEAM Healthcare and Education
The 2008 BREEAM Awards mark the third annual national ceremony of its kind, with a regional awards ceremony for Wales taking place earlier this year.
