The Brewery, Romford a Savills UK first, achieves a ‘Good’ rating from BREEAM in use for both Asset Performance & Building Management; whilst simultaneously holding ISO14001.
The Brewery, Romford is pleased to announce a UK retail and leisure industry double success.
The popular shopping centre, situated in the historic market town of Romford, offers shoppers a broad range of retail, restaurant and entertainment facilities, including Vue Cinema, TK Maxx, Mod Pizza, Gap Outlet, TGI Fridays, KidSpace soft play and Namco Funscape.
The centre has recently been awarded a certification from BRE – the world’s leading building science centre, under Part 1 and Part 2 of the BREEAM In-Use International 2015 Scheme, which is designed to drive and showcase excellence in the operation of existing buildings. BREEAM also covers newly-constructed assets and is an internationally recognised certification brand.
The Brewery Awarded ‘Good’ for performance in operation
The Brewery achieved a ‘Good’ BREEAM In-Use rating for performance with its efficient waste disposal, the installation of a more efficient water supply process and the increased efforts to reduce energy costs.
The assessment was completed by Thomas Vazakas at RPS, with the Centre being certified in September 2018 for the owner TH Real Estate (now Nuveen) under management by Savills.
By lowering running costs, The Brewery can maximise commercial returns, as well as creating an appealing environment for both new tenants and local shoppers, resulting in a more desirable retail and leisure site for people to enjoy living, shopping and working.
Follows previous award of ‘Very Good’ for new construction in retail
The Brewery had already achieved a ‘Very Good’ BREEAM certificate for new construction in retail for Romford Pavilion 3, Units 1 & 2, the unit occupied by Patisserie Valerie.
The assessment was completed by Shivani Kothari at Synergy BSS Ltd, with the Centre being certified in September 2015. Categories scoring particularly well included transport, energy and materials. This reflected the importance The Brewery had placed during the project on sourcing local sustainable materials for the build.
The Brewery Centre Manager, Tom Stobbart, said:
"I'm delighted that The Brewery has been recognised with this level of BREEAM accreditation in two different parts. As a team, we have been focused on improving a number of specific aspects of the site over recent years, and sustainability and the environment are both high on our list of priorities.
The centre has also recently gained ISO 14001, an accreditation that recognises the Environmental Management System (EMS) used to manage the immediate and long term environmental impacts of an organisation's products, services and processes.
Working towards these certificates has proven to be a great motivator. We’re looking forward to continuing with all the good work and establishing a wider set of excellent credentials for the site."
Sam Shores, Management Director at Savills said,
"We are thrilled for The Brewery. We believe that this combination of simultaneously holding Bream in use and ISO14001 is a UK 1st for a Savills managed property. Well done to all involved."
