SKA assessment has been introduced by RICS as an assessment methodology to measure the sustainability of fit outs. A SKA assessment produces a clear certification which demonstrates that the fit out was completed in an environmentally sensitive way and that the ongoing environmental impact of the building will be reduced.
One of the key features of a SKA assessment lies in its flexibility. The assessment topics depend on the nature of the retrofit, as opposed to a rating system where the categories are fixed, and where non-compliance with any particular criterion would automatically generate a negative score.
A SKA assessment therefore enables your design team to select the topics that are relevant and which they are able to influence through product selection or improvement of a process.
