Breeam Ecology Reports and surveys
Breeam reports are becoming a part of the planning system. We can undertake the Breeam ecology report and land use section of the Breeam, for your site. We will carry out a Breeam ecology survey and write a report, with recommendations to help you to gain more Breeam Eco credits. Credits are awarded for ecological protection, mitigation and enhancement of your site’s ecology. We can help with the following Breeam Assessments: Offices, Homes, Industrial units, Retail units, Schools and Prisons.
There are generally no less than seven credits available within BREEAM assessments for ecology. Eco Homes; Eco1–Eco4 comprise 9.23% of the total score, which can make the difference between a “Pass” and a “Good” and significantly contribute towards achieving a “Very Good” or “Excellent” grade.
Landvision works closely with developers and BREEAM and Code for Sustainable Homes Assessors to successfully gain such ecology scores or eco credits.
Credit points are awarded under the ecology and land use section for protecting the ecology of the site, protecting ecological features, protected species and biodiversity management.
For instance, if there are mature trees on site or rare or unusual species such as Great Crested newts, protection and mitigation measures will be required and habitat enhancement plans or biodiversity action plans may be drawn up by a Suitably Qualified Ecologist (SQE.) Undertaking these ecology reports and mitigation measures will lead to additional eco credits being awarded for your scheme.
