BREEAM awards green buildings

Posted on by in News

The greenest buildings in Wales were recognised in the first ever BREEAM Awards, specifically for the Principality, with two steel projects among the winners.

The awards were presented at the Greener Homes and Building Exhibition by Jane Davidson AM, Minister for the Environment, Sustainability and Housing, and Nick Tune of BRE Wales.

In order to win, each project had to have excelled in every environmental category within BREEAM and therefore winners represent a complete approach to delivering sustainability.

Unlike many construction awards, the BREEAM awards are not subjectively judged but reward developments that have been independently assessed and certified as scoring the highest number of credits in the relevant year and location.

Three developments were highlighted this year for their outstanding achievement in environmental design and management. They included two steel-framed projects, the New Construction & Technology Block at Pembrokeshire College (top left) and the Unit 5 at the Great Oaks Business Park in Llanidloes (left). They obtained BREEAM scores of 72.54% and 73.43% respectively.
