Wst 05 for Nottingham AMB BREEAM Excellent
Wst 05 for Nottingham AMB
The Nottingham Advanced Manufacturing Building progresses towards BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accreditation by earning the Wst 05 credit, and we are particularly pleased with how the scheme has delivered against some of the key credits which are necessary in order to secure the highest BREEAM Excellent and BREEAM Outstanding ratings. These BREEAM Credits were achieved by surpassing the challenges of building near a flood risk area, designing for functionality and flexibility, and adapting to climate change.
We recently worked on the Wst 05 Adapting to Climate Change credit and identified over 60 Climate Change Hazards which the design team managed to mitigate effectively.
It was fantastic to see see many site and fabric enhancements on the scheme, which did not significantly increase the construction cost yet enable it to cope with some of the risks associated with current climate change projections
