BREEAM Infrastructure assessors and verifiers

Page Description

BREEAM Infrastructure is a self-assessment process carried out by a trained assessors and externally verified by appointed verifiers.

BREEAM Infrastructure (formerly CEEQUAL)

BREEAM Infrastructure (formerly CEEQUAL) assessors are at the centre of the BREEAM Infrastructure process, helping projects to consider sustainability at the most appropriate times. BREEAM Infrastructure verifiers help guide the assessor through the assessment process and provide third-party verification of the final rating.

Overview of assessors and verifiers

The BREEAM Infrastructure assessor drives the assessment process forward to ensure projects obtain the highest BREEAM Infrastructure rating possible.

BREEAM Infrastructure assessors assess the sustainability of infrastructure, civil engineering, landscaping, and public realm projects. The assessor influences the project team to consider sustainability issues at appropriate times. Under the guidance of the BREEAM Infrastructure verifier, the assessor is responsible for assessing the project and arriving at a rating

The BREEAM Infrastructure verifier guides the assessor and verifies the final assessment to ensure the rating is accurate.

BREEAM Infrastructure verifiers are independent from the project team. They provide impartial, third-party credibility to the final rating. The verifier acts as a guide and mentor to the assessor, helping them with any queries or issues. BREEAM Infrastructure verifiers are more experienced BREEAM Infrastructure users. They are selected from a pool of assessors who have completed at least one assessment, so that they can provide the best support possible to assessors.
