BREEAM statistics

The request was partially successful.

Dear Office of Government Commerce,

OGC require BREEAM assessments on major projects:
The Building Research Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is regarded by the UK's construction and property sector as the measure of best practice in environmental design and management. BREEAM, or an equivalent methodology, must be used in all major government construction projects. In new builds a rating of "excellent" must be achieved, in major refurbishments a rating of at least "very good" must be achieved.

Please advise how many buildings have been rated, what score (%) and rating they each received, and what scheme (building type and year) they were assessed under.

Yours faithfully,

M Starrs

Bird, Caroline - Cabinet Office,

Dear M Starrs,

FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST REFERENCE NO: 544916

I write in connection with your request for information dated 25^th
February 2011 which was received by OGC on 25^th February 2011. I note you
seek access to the following information:

OGC require BREEAM assessments on major projects: The Building Research
Establishment's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is regarded by
the UK's construction and property sector as the measure of best practice
in environmental design and management. BREEAM, or an equivalent
methodology, must be used in all major government construction projects.
In new builds a rating of "excellent" must be achieved, in major
refurbishments a rating of at least "very good" must be achieved.

· Please advise how many buildings have been rated, what score
(%) and rating they each received, and what scheme (building type and
year) they were assessed under.

Your request will now be considered in accordance with the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (the Act). You will receive a response within the
statutory timescale of 20 working days as defined by the Act, subject to
the information not being exempt or containing a reference to a third
party. In some circumstances OGC may be unable to achieve this deadline.
If this is likely you will be informed and given a revised time-scale at
the earliest opportunity.

OGC's policy is not to charge for providing information where to do so
costs less than the "appropriate limit" [Note: The "appropriate limit"
means such amount as may be set by the regulations], which is currently
£600

Where the cost of providing information would exceed £600, OGC will
generally not provide the information. However, OGC may be able to provide
some of the information requested if it can be supplied within the
"appropriate limit".

There may be a separate fee payable for the costs of copying and postage
if you require the information in hard copy. If this is the case you will
be informed and the 20 working day timescale will be suspended until we
receive payment from you. If you chose not to make payment then your
request will remain unanswered.

Some requests may also require either full or partial transference to
another public authority in order to answer your query in the fullest
possible way. Again, you will be informed if this is the case.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in
OGC.

Should you have any further enquiries concerning this matter, please write
or contact our Service Desk on 0845 000 4999 or e-mail [1]Service
