Pre-refurbishment audits involve the assessment and analysis of waste produced from the demolition element of a building refurbishment (requirement of BREEAM assessment).  We are on the preferred supplier list for ISG for this service.  

These audits identify opportunities for reclamation, re-use and recycling from a refurbishment process.  The end report will provide you with a graphical display of the waste arisings that can be expected from the process, along with a list of recommendations for reducing your waste disposal costs.

Pre-refurbishment audits are prepared to the ICE Demolition Protocol standard and can be requested for planning requirements.  They are a main requirement of the BREEAM 2014 Refurbishment standard.  They are designed to highlight the potential for maximum material recovery through refurbishment, and provide a bill of quantities of tonnages that will arise. A report will be produced detailing materials arisings as well as a list of suggested actions to achieve maximum material recovery.

The report includes information on the following:  

  • The potential for maximum material recovery through refurbishment
  • A refurbishment bill of quantities, which identifies tonnages and potential applications of materials arising from refurbishment.
  • A set of recommendations for material segregation, considering the potential impact of contamination and the cost benefits for recovery and reclamation.  

Why Do You Need A Pre-refurbishment Audit?

Pre-refurbishment audits are a requirement for meeting BREEAM Wst 01 Construction Waste Management standard. Find out more about this BREEAM standard.

To comply with BREEAM Wst 01 you may also need a Pre-demolition Audit and a Site Waste Management Plan SWMP.
