Rochester, Kent, UK
BREEAM compliance has become a prerequisite for many government contracts, and Air Quality Plan was delighted to work alongside Interserve Construction Ltd in the development of a new prison house block and education facility at HMP Cookham Wood in Rochester, Kent.
The young offenders institute clearly has a responsibility for the health and welfare of prisoners and with a large amount of time spent indoors, air quality and the living environment is of paramount importance. Air Quality Plan conducted rigorous air quality assurance and issued certification towards an indoor air quality BREEAM point score.
Contractors tendering for government projects will increasingly find a contract specification regarding BREEAM scoring. Air Quality Plan can provide simple, cost effective solutions for newly constructed and refurbished buildings, or annual or more frequent assessments of air quality in any indoor environment.
Air Quality Plan delivers post construction testing and on-going testing and certification which meets HSE recommendations that indoor air quality should be assessed on a regular basis.
A large number of courts and prison environments are now more rigorous in regard to BREEAM accreditation.
