BREEAM Awards 2020
BREEAM is the Building Research Establishment (BRE) Environmental Assessment Method, first launched in the UK in 1990. It sets best practice standards for the environmental performance of buildings through design, specification, construction and operation.
The BREEAM awards cover a variety of sectors including residential, retail, industrial, education and healthcare as well as project types such as new build, refurbishment and in-use. They recognise projects and organisations that provide the best balance between performance, replicability and innovation. The winners range from homes in vibrant mixed-use developments to large scale commercial properties incorporating green roofs and living walls in the centre of cities.

This year also saw the introduction of a new award category, the Director’s Award, of which Derek Welling, Senior Responsible Investment & Governance Specialist at APG Asset Management, was the recipient. This award recognises the scale of impact and advocacy that an individual has contributed to BREEAM.
Shamir Ghumra, Director of BREEAM, said: “This year BREEAM celebrates its 30th Birthday, and the numbers since its launch speak for themselves. With over 570,000 certificates issued and over 2,200,000 registered buildings across 85 countries, we have so much to celebrate from our work… Looking ahead, we will continue to create a movement for sustainability within the built environment while working towards a positive future for all that use BREEAM and benefit from its impact.”
