Awards and Accreditations
Assessor, Auditor and Country
As well as recognising inspirational buildings, the BREEAM Awards acknowledge some key figures in all assessments – BREEAM Assessors and BREEAM In-Use Auditors. These awards are based on a significant achievement – they are for the assessors who have achieved the highest average scores for their BREEAM assessments over the course of the year. In addition, awards are made to those pioneering assessors who have been the first in a particular country to have assessed a BREEAM certified building.
BREEAM Assessor of the Year
Wendy McClure of Synergy BSS has held a BREEAM license since 2008, and became a BREEAM Accredited Professional in 2009. She has worked as a BREEAM assessor on many exciting and ground breaking projects including ‘Outstanding’ rated Waitrose supermarkets at Bracknell and Stratford. To date Synergy has successfully assessed over 50 different buildings to final certification, with a further 20 plus currently holding Interim certification and undergoing their final assessments. Having BREEAM Assessors has helped the Synergy to expand its client base.

Client of the Year
WINNER: Waitrose – nominated by Synergy
A client with a strong energy reduction agenda who is ‘consistently open to new ideas’, said the judges. Waitrose’s recently-opened Stratford store in east London is the world’s first Breeam ‘Outstanding’ retail project. Following successful trials at its Bracknell store, lighting one aisle with a specially designed 600 x 600mm LED module, Waitrose has lit the complete sales area of its new store in Stratford upon Avon with solid-state lighting. It is believed to be the first retail store in the UK to do this without exceeding an energy consumption of 10W/m2
