BREEAM International Refurbishment and fit out provides a framework that encourages the retention of as much of the asset and its systems as possible. The assessment criteria and process focus on four key elements from concept to completion: building envelope and structure, core systems, local services and interior design.

These standards are used to assess the renovation of an asset, including projects undertaken to improve the performance, function and overall condition of an existing building. This standard also covers tenant improvements; alterations to the interior to fit tenant needs whether in a newly constructed or existing building.

Certificates can be issued at the design stage (noted as interim BREEAM rating based on the design) or post-construction to confirm the final BREEAM rating.
