Responsible Construction Practice (BREEAM-NL) in the Realization of Porsche Center Brabant in Oisterwijk
Janssen Aannemers (Moergestel) is currently hard at work on the construction of the new Porsche Center Brabant in Oisterwijk. Quadrant4 is taking on the project management and is also guiding Janssen Aannemers in the BREEAM-NL sustainability process. This also includes the site visit with the BREEAM-NL assessor (which took place on September 6, 2023). We would like to tell you more about what precedes this visit and who does what within such a process.
Brief Explanation of Managing Construction Sites within BREEAM-NL (MAN 03)
"Promoting the responsible and accountable management of construction sites in terms of environmental and social aspects" is how MAN 03, responsible construction practice within the BREEAM-NL system, is described. To meet these requirements, the following three credits are necessary:
- Environmental management on the construction site (1 point)
- Responsible construction site management (2 points)
- Monitoring the environmental impact of the construction site (2 points)
For newcomers, studying and applying the BREEAM-NL system can be challenging, as it is quite complex. Fortunately, our BREEAM-NL experts are always available to assist our clients. They help you navigate through this matter. In this case, we are also working together with the Janssen Aannemers team who are building according to the BREEAM-NL system for the first time.
Advice and Guidance from Quadrant4 Prior to the Site Visit
Quadrant4's BREEAM-NL experts assisted Janssen Aannemers in preparing their documents and setting up the construction site. The tips and examples gathered from previous Quadrant4 projects were highly valuable and were shared with the Janssen Aannemers team. Leading up to the site inspection on September 6, we collectively reviewed the documents to ensure their completeness. Subsequently, we submitted them as evidence for MAN 03. When everything was ready, our team was prepared to welcome the assessor to the construction site.
