La madera y la certificación BREEAM 01

Wood and BREEAM certification are compatible. Moreover, using wood in your project can help you obtain this environmental sustainability certificate.

BREEAM stands for Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method, a voluntary sustainability rating system for buildings. Certification encompasses 10 categories within a project: management, health and wellbeing, energy, transport, water use, materials, waste, land use and ecology, pollution and innovation.

BREEAM certification offers a number of advantages such as drastically improving the quality of life for occupants, alignment with international sustainability targets and the competitive edge achieved by this type of recognition

Using acoustic panels or interior cladding made of wood (such as those in the Spigogroup catalogue) in your project can contribute to getting this certification:

 

    • Responsible sourcing of materials: BREEAM rewards being able to demonstrate that materials are produced responsibly and sustainably, and Spigogroup’s wood solutions use FSC / PEFC wood from sustainably managed forests.
    • Indoor air quality: Spigogroup has the A+ label which certifies that its wood cladding is free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that can pollute indoor air.
    • Acoustics: using wood panels that improve building acoustics gives extra points towards BREEAM certification.
    • CO2 emission rate: wood cladding on the thermal envelope of a building contributes to the reduction of energy use and CO2 emissions.
    • Low environmental impact materials: wood is an ecological material, easily recyclable and with a low environmental impact over the entire life cycle of the building.
