Want to find out what BREEAM rating a building has, or information about a BREEAM building nearby? Need to find a local BREEAM assessor?

The UK BREEAM Finder app uses BREEAM’s API technology to take your current location, or UK postcode information, and locate your nearest BREEAM certified building, or find your nearest registered BREEAM Assessors or Accredited Professional (AP).

Using the app, you can locate the relevant BREEAM information for assessors, assessments or APs, within a specified radius of your location or UK postcode. You can see the contact information, address and BREEAM rating in the BRE GreenBook .

The app development was funded by the BRE Trust, the largest UK charity dedicated specifically to research and education in the built environment and is available for both Android and iOS.

Globally there are more than 500,000 BREEAM certified developments in over 70 countries, and more than 2 million buildings registered for assessment since it was first launched in 1990.

What is the BREEAM API

The UK BREEAM Finder app uses the BREEAM Application Programming Interface (API), an online service that can allow live access to BREEAM-related data.

To find out more about APIs and what they do, see here:
