Users should flat roofs. Increased resource consumption in constructing refer to the `Upper floor' section of this edition for further a roof that will last longer will be offset by the reduction in information on selecting a concrete flat roof structure with materials used later in repairs and refurbishment. In terms low impacts. of the impacts of the roofing membranes, asphalt generally has higher impacts than the lightweight reinforced bitumen The choice of the roofing membrane (the roof-covering felt.

The less they are the product of resource- and energyintensive manufacturing processes, the more favourable the environmental profile. Hence, for wall construction, BREEAM the profiling results show the benefits of timber framing One credit is available in BREEAM for the use of A-rated and low-mass construction. However, traditional brickwork specifications for over 80% (by area) of the external walls. cavity wall construction also performs well, particularly if used with an aerated blockwork inner leaf.
