BREEAM Building User Guides

What is a BREEAM Building User Guide?

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment (BRE) Environmental Assessment Method) User Guides are a small additional document that supplement the Building Log Book to include the environmental assessment findings relating to a building and provide Building Users with an introduction to their working environment.

Under the latest BREEAM 2018 standard, there is a requirement to provide separate Building User Guides for General/Non-Technical Users and for Facilities Managers/Technical Users.

The principal purpose of the document is to ensure users are aware of the Green features of their building and how to interface with them. They are often intended for non-technical personnel with little or no knowledge of the building or the systems within.

Riddell PM prepares BREEAM Building User Guides on behalf of Clients to complete the Handover Documentation set and provide the end deliverable in an easy to use, fully updateable format.

Our team take into account the BREEAM standard which an individual project is seeking to achieve, whether it is BREEAM 2008, 2011, 2014 or 2018.

Integral to our process is an organised site visit in the final few weeks of the works, to take photographs which will be included in the Final Building User Guide. These photographs can then further be annotated to help the end user better understand the equipment, etc.

Riddell PM manage the overall process of collating and presenting the required documentation in a fully complaint format and structure so our Client can achieve the Man 4 credit under the BREEAM Assessment.
