BEAM / BEAMPLUS is a green building rating tool, its not a standard, that provides an equitable framework for rewarding and recognising superior building performance over and above the minimum building code.

BEAM certified buildings will have been designed, and commissioned using best practice, having aspects of energy and sustainability, and waste considered.

BEAM is undoubtedly the leading initiative to improve environmental performance of buildings in Hong Kong, with nearly sixty million square feet assessed and certified (2010)

And unlike other initiatives BEAM certification is only completed after the project is delivered, to ensure the promised performance was achieved.
