We have many years of experience in performing indoor air quality measurements in accordance with the requirements of BREEAM building certification.
BREEAM (Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method) is a multi-criteria building certification system created by the British organization BRE Global (Building Research Establishment). It is the oldest, most popular and international system for assessing buildings in terms of their impact on the environment.
Nowadays, the concept of sustainable development is widely known, and we are not indifferent to its assumptions. On the contrary, they have become very important and set the rules for our conduct. We want to meet our needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
This is why the BREEM certification system was created. It describes the best practices for the sustainable design, construction and buildings use. It considers actions to reduce the negative impact on the environment, ensure the comfort of users and minimize the costs of the building use. It sets new standards in the construction industry, and also gives the opportunity to assess the quality of the investment process.
The BREEAM certification system is used by investors and developers, as well as tenants, because certification can be carried out for newly constructed buildings and those, which already exist.
A certified building undergoes a five-point evaluation in ten categories: management, health and well-being, energy, transport, water, materials, waste, ecology and land use, pollution and innovation.
Indoor air quality requirements are defined in the "health and well-being" category, in the "indoor air quality" sub-category. And it is certainly one of the most important aspects of building comfort assessment. We spend most of our time in offices or apartments, so indoor air quality strongly affects our health and well-being. In order to check the air quality inside the building for the BREEAM, appropriate measurements should be made.
Employees of WESSLING Polska have many years of experience in performing air quality measurements for BREEAM certification. In accordance with its requirements, we offer TVOC and formaldehyde measurements in the field of air purity. Our measurement techniques are used to estimate the amount of these substances emitted by the finishing elements and room equipment. Our specialists will assist you in selecting the number of samples and determining the sampling places.
