BEAM Professional for New Buildings (NB)

BEAM PLUS New Buildings (NB) applies to whole building assessments, it is generally conducted into two stages, called the Provisional Assessment (PA) and Final Assessment (FA).

A Provisional Assessment (PA) submission is the first round, it is primarily the list of commitments of the features and performance of the building systems detailed in the contract documents. Although detailed in the contract, some credits require very detailed submission at PA stage to justify the claim features and or future performance of the development.2

The Final Assessment (FA) submission is the second round, when the features are installed, the performance data must be submitted to BEAM demonstrating actual installation, and performance of the completed building. For example, on site IAQ measurements and the like.

Under BEAM PLUS New Buildings v1.2 Innovations one credit point is awarded for engaging a BEAM professional for the project.


BEAM Professional for Existing Buildings (EB)

BEAM PLUS Existing Buildings (EB) in fact has two alternative schemes for existing buildings 1) EB Comprehensive and 2) EB Selective.

the key learning point is green operation of existing buildings, primarily to lower consumption of energy, water, and resource.

BEAM Interiors

BEAM Interiors (BI) is the green building rating tool for offices, and retail. Compared to BEAM PLUS NB, it has a different certification process.

The key differences include:

  • claiming Not Applicable (NA) is excluded, all credits are applicable
  • one assessment - after completion
  • site inspection BSL will conduct site check
