BREEAM project delivery stakeholders

BREEAM UK New Construction, Non-domestic Buildings (United Kingdom), Technical Manual, SD5078: BREEAM UK New Construction 2018 3.0, published by BRE Global Limited, suggests that in relation to BREEAM project delivery stakeholders:

‘The purpose of criterion 1 on page xlvii is to reflect the need to consider the input of all major project stakeholders from the earliest practical stage, to ensure smooth and successful delivery of the project's sustainability objectives. Project delivery stakeholders include the client, the building occupier (where known), the design team and the principal contractor. Contractors' involvement ensures their input in terms of formulating sustainable design solutions, commenting or inputting on the practicality and buildability of (one or more) design solutions and their impact on programming, cost etc. BREEAM recognises that traditionally for some projects, the contractor for the works is not appointed at the early project stages and therefore compliance with this criterion would not be possible. In these instances, to ensure the aim of the criteria is upheld, the criterion is met if a suitably experienced person with substantial construction or contracting experience in projects similar to the proposed works is involved prior to appointment of the contractor. A suitably experienced person could be a contractor appointed as a consultant for this stage or a construction project manager.’

Where criterion 1 states:

‘Prior to completion of the Concept Design (RIBA Stage 2 or equivalent), the project delivery stakeholders meet to identify and define for each key phase of project delivery:

  • 1.a: Roles
  • 1.b: Responsibilities
  • 1.c: Contributions.’
