BREEAM is a sustainability certificate to design and build your building project at the highest level of sustainability. FALK gladly helps you with the challenges concerning the application of sandwich panels in a BREEAM project.
With BREEAM you can earn points for the various construction aspects. The final score is divided into five grades (Pass, Good, Very Good, Excellent and Outstanding).
Your choice of sandwich panels influences parts of the BREEAM system. Because BREEAM measures the building performance, the influence of a single product is not always clear. Nevertheless, some BREEAM points are linked with specific product. FALK would like to clarify where you can gain points with the application of the FALK sandwich panel. The BREEAM evaluation guideline consists of nine parts. FALK added value to a selection of parts.
