BREEAM Awards Showcase the Most Outstanding Green Buildings in Europe
Another of our favorite BREEAM award winners is the British Embassy building in Berlin, which opened in the summer of 2000. This high performance building signifies a commitment by the British Government to green all of its UK foreign and Commonwealth offices. To measure the embassy’s built performance, BRE launched BREEAM In-Use. Thanks to Johnson Controls, the building’s facilities managment, the building was awarded a ‘Very Good’ rating in the scheme, making it the first project outside the UK to achieve this rating.
Rogiet Primary School in Monmouthsire is a single-storey timber-framed building that features good access to daylight, responsibly-sourced timber, rainwater harvesting, solar hot water, and a very clever heating and cooling system.
