To achieve the BREEAM exemplary credit, the SABRE 'design stage' or 'as-built' certification (as applicable to the BREEAM assessment stage) must be completed before BREEAM certification. As SABRE Practitioners and Assessors, ERG can help organisations effectively plan security measures in order to protect their built environment from terrorism and other security threats.
Aligned with ISO 23234: 2021 and the NPSA Security Overlays, ERG can guide and support security deliverables that should be completed at each stage of the project lifecycle, based on RIBA stages.
ERG’ s Security Risk Design (SRD) Framework is used to assess new and existing buildings, infrastructure and space during design, construction, and operations. An SRD assessment supports the design of security solutions that are justified, necessary, proportionate, legal and cost-effective. This risk-based approach supports the achievement of better security outcomes, return on investment, positive security culture and a greater certainty of effect. Such a design system is focused upon the effect resulting from each element of an integrated solution. This commitment to protect people, infrastructure and critical assets provides assurance to stakeholders, demonstrates care for the public and aids regulatory compliance.
