The BREEAM AP will provide the design team with expert advice on built environment sustainability, environmental design and environmental assessment. They will facilitate the team's efforts to successfully schedule activities, set priorities and negotiate the trade-offs required to achieve a target BREEAM rating when the design is formally assessed.


BREEAM AP qualification is open to suitably experienced construction professionals who already have a good knowledge of environmental design and the design process, and wish to deliver buildings to meet BREEAM certification requirements. In recognition of the significant contribution a BREEAM AP can make to the design process, extra credits are given in some BREEAM schemes for appointing and using an AP. The following schemes recognise the BREEAM AP qualification:
•BREEAM New Construction 2011 (UK)
•BREEAM International New Construction 2013
•BREEAM Domestic Refurbishment 2012

Entry requirements for the AP course:

•Recognised academic / vocational qualification in a relevant built environment discipline
•At least three years post graduate (or equivalent) professional experience working in a role covering the sustainability of the built environment - candidates will ideally have design team involvement on a number of projects where sustainability was part of the project brief e.g. a target to achieve at least BREEAM Excellence for the completed design
•Knowledge of environmental design / integrated design with an appreciation of life cycle assessment and cost analysis
•Minimum levels of work experience and on-the-job training can be considered as alternatives to formal qualification and professional membership
