First BREEAM USA In-Use Excellent Certified Building

UC Davis Plant & Environmental Sciences building is the first BREEAM In-Use certified academic building in the country. It is also the first project in the U.S. to be certified as “excellent” in asset performance for BREEAM In-Use.


What is BREEAM?

You may have heard of LEED, but what about BREEAM? BREEAM has been around since 1990 (it's older than LEED!), but it was only in 2017 that we decided to see what it was all about. Because when it comes to sustainability, two certification programs are better than one!
