It’s A First For Ollie! image

Ollie Jones

Ollie who is based in the Godalming office recently completed his degree in Construction Management having studied part-time at Southbank University while working at Lysander. Here, he tells us a bit more about his decision to pursue this route and some of the advantages and disadvantages to balancing studying with work. Tell us how you came to work at Lysander? I studied Business and IT in 6th Form but had already decided that while I wanted to continue my studies, I didn’t want to go to University.

BREEAM New Construction 2018 image

BREEAM New Construction 2018. The current ‘BREEAM New Construction 2014’ scheme will be closing to registrations on 23rd March 2018. After this date, any new build projects that are not registered will be assessed under ‘BREEAM New Construction 2018’. As with all updated schemes, this new one will be more onerous and therefore the cost of achieving a Very Good or Excellent rating is likely to increase. We recommend that our clients pre-register any existing or upcoming new build projects that they know are likely to require a BREEAM assessment, before the 23rd March. All BRE ‘known’ projects registered prior to this deadline will continue to be assessed under the more advantageous ‘BREEAM New Construction 2014’ ...
