BREEAM 2011 Pol 05 Credits
0800 030 4391
The information shown below is also available to download in spreadsheet format, and aims to help summarise the credits that your project could be targeting and is split into two tabs, one for BREEAM Health & Wellbeing Hea 05 credits and one for the BREEAM Pollution Pol 05 credits.
For Pol05 tab there is a single credit available regardless of building type and this is generally applicable to all projects.
We hope you find the spreadsheet useful, needless to say HRS Acoustics and BREEAM staff are always available to assist with any queries you may have relating to BREEAM acoustic credits – or any other acoustic issues.

POLLUTION Pol 05 CREDITS
Aim: To reduce the likelihood of noise from the new development affecting nearby noise-sensitive buildings
|BREEAM 2011 Pol 05 CREDITS|
|Total Credits Available||1|
|Site Criteria||Noise Impact Criteria||Credits||Testing Requirements||Notes|
|Where there are or will be noise-sensitive areas or buildings within 800m radius of the assessed development a noise impact assessment in compliance with BS 7445:1991 has been carried out and the following noise levels measured/determined:
Existing background noise levels at the nearest or most exposed noise-sensitive devel-opment to the proposed development or at a location where background conditions can be argued to be similar.
The rating noise level resulting from the new noise-source (see also Compliance note: Compliance at the design stage).
|The noise level from the proposed site/building, as measured in the locality of the nearest or most exposed noise-sensitive development, is a difference no greater than +5dB during the day (0700hrs to 2300hrs) and +3dB at night (2300hrs to 0700hrs) compared to the back-ground noise level.||1||The noise impact assessment must be carried out by a suitably qualified acoustic consultant holding a recognised acoustic qualification and membership of an appropriate professional body (see Relevant definitions in the Additional Information section).||
The credit can be awarded by default where there are or will be no noise-sensitive areas or buildings within 800m radius of the assessed development.
Where the noise source(s) from the proposed site/building is greater than the levels described in criterion 4, measures have been installed to attenuate the noise at its source to a level where it will comply with criterion 4.
