Presenting will be two of Scott Hughes Design BREEAM 'Accredited Professionals', the overall aim of the presentation is to demonstrate the different considerations and challenges presented when moving from a BREEAM 'Excellent', to a BREEAM 'Outstanding' development.

The talk will begin with a brief introduction to BREEAM and it's position given the current political climate and anticipated changes to the Building Regulation in October, and then move to an overview of two office building projects, one the Metro office development, constructed by BAM to a BREEAM 'Excellent' level, and the second the new Co-op Headquarters in Manchester, a flagship project currently under construction by BAM Construction to BREEAM 'Outstanding' level.

Issues such as energy and water conservation, mandatory BREEAM requirements and the effect of the different characteristics of each site will be explored with relation to sustainable design and the attainment of benchmark environmental certification. Key pitfalls and preparation areas will be identified, as well as hidden risks inherent within the BREEAM criteria.

Delegates are also invited to take a tour of the building after the main presentation.

This is a great opportunity to look at what challenges key clients, contractors and suppliers face when dealing with such projects, and will also offer an opportunity to network with a range of clients, contractors and industry professionals in this unique event.
