BREEAM External lighting
 When to consider
- Request confirmation on whether there is external lighting present.
- If there is, provide the design team with the design criteria for compliance.
- Request evidence (see section below) to demonstrate compliance at the design and post construction stages.
 Questions to ask while seeking compliance
- Does the building have external areas which require external lighting?
- Is the building an infill building on an existing site or an extension to an existing building?
- Will there be any areas with intermittent pedestrian traffic?
 Tips and best practice
- Double-check that the manufacturers’ product datasheets provide all the required information and match up to the specification provided on any drawings showing external lighting.
 Typical evidence
 Design Stage Evidence
A site plan indicating external lighting (both locations of light fittings and types), accompanied by manufacturers’ product datasheets for each external light fitting. A schedule of external lighting and calculations for the average lumens per circuit watt may also be provided.
 Post Construction Stage Evidence
 Applicable Schemes
The guidelines collated in this ISD aim to support sustainable best practice in the topic described. This issue may apply in multiple BREEAM schemes covering different stages in the life of a building, different building types and different year versions. Some content may be generic but scheme nuances should also be taken into account. Refer to the comments below and related articles to this one to understand these nuances. See this document for further guidelines.
