Government considers scrapping BREEAM requirements for schools


‘BREEAM becomes a problem [in terms of cost] if it is used far too late as a tick-box, hassle exercise rather than a design tool" I've been involved in a few school design conferences over the last year, both in the UK and USA. I've seen some great schools and some absolutely soulless, dispiriting and, frankly, dreadful ones. The dreadful ones always lead by TRUMPETING their BREEAM and LEED credentials.
