About BREEAM whole life performance

BREEAM has been created to take into account the whole life performance (WLP) of buildings - how a building performs over time.

BREEAM provides the tools and frameworks to empower asset investors, developers, owners and operators to make these informed decisions about the lifespan of their asset, and measure and report on these outcomes.

BREEAM supports whole life performance by:

  • Facilitating a complete circular journey for built assets throughout the entire built environment lifecycle.

  • Providing a holistic approach to sustainability assessment across environmental, social and economic impacts.

  • Providing a scientific framework to balance various goals and targets.

  • Helping you to identify performance gaps between design intent and operational performance to support continuous improvement in real estate performance.

Whole life performance in context

Whole life performance is a key focus area for all built asset professionals. Decisions made at the design and construction phases of a building can have far-reaching impacts on the building’s overall lifetime from resource consumption, occupant health, asset resilience and resultant emissions.

By placing consideration of whole life performance and whole life costs at the core of decision making, we can create better performing assets with a longer lifespan. Evidencing whole life performance is also becoming a consideration for green financing options, giving lenders more confidence in their investments.
