BREEAM first for steel framed structure

Posted on by in News

A steel framed pallet warehouse at Severnside near Bristol has become the first building awarded certification to BREEAM New Construction 2011.

BREEAM is the world’s foremost design assessment method for sustainable buildings and it is regularly updated to ensure it continues to drive best practice.

Using the new updated BREEAM the warehouse has achieved a ‘Very Good’ rating.

Working on behalf of main contractor Winvic Construction, Atlas Ward Structures fabricated, supplied and erected all of the project’s steelwork.

Designed by RPS Planning and Development, the building occupies the first plot to be developed on the 640-acre, Central Park distribution estate.

“A wide range of buildings have been registered to BREEAM 2011 and many are now being assessed,” commented Carol Atkinson, Chief Executive of BRE Global. “Congratulations to the project team involved in the design and construction of this first BREEAM 2011.”
