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.
The process for a SKA assessment is different to that of other environmental assessment methods, such as BREEAM or LEED, as it solely focuses on the fit-out or refurbishment process.
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.
