Excellent – BREEAM rating for Andrew Wiles Building

The new Mathematical Institute on the ROQ site, the Andrew Wiles Building, has received BREEAM Excellent certification, the second highest award under this environmental assessment methodology.

BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology) is the world’s longest established and most widely used method of assessing, rating and certifying the sustainability of buildings.

The accreditation for the Andrew Wiles building follows a period of post-construction evidence gathering and independent verification by the Building Research Establishment (BRE).  This puts the building in the top 25% of assessed buildings and demonstrates further fulfilment of the University’s commitment to delivering BREEAM Excellent buildings which has been its policy since 2009.  Thanks goes to all those involved in delivering the project.
