This document sets out the University of Bristol's requirements in incorporating sustainable construction principles into the design of all its Capital Projects.
The University is committed to reducing its environmental impact and has adopted a policy with key targets to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, water use and waste.
Within the policy, a key objective is to introduce sustainable construction principles to all new built, extensions and refurbishments. To help achieve this objective and the wider policy targets, the University will use the Building Research Establishments Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) when building or refurbishing buildings.
The aim is to achieve an Excellent rating on all new builds and extensions and very good on all refurbishments. Particular focus and effort should be made to achieve high scores on Energy, Water, Transport, Health, Recyclable Storage and
Construction Impact Management credits. Most of the assessments at the University will be on a bespoke basis.
