BREEAM is the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method for buildings. It sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and is a common measure used to describe a building's environmental performance.
BREEAM can be used to assess any type of building. Standard schemes have been developed for the most popular building types e.g. offices, retail developments, education, healthcare buildings etc.
Powder coating is an organic product and does not affect the re-cyclability of base metals. Powder coating has a utilisation rate of up to 95% and does not contain volatile organic compounds (V.O.C's).
Transporting powder coating materials is very efficient as everything that is carried is used unlike liquid coatings where up to 60% will evaporate during the application process.
