SKA rating is an environmental assessment method, benchmark and standard for non-domestic fit-outs, led and owned by RICS.

SKA rating helps landlords and tenants assess fit-out projects against a set of sustainability good practice criteria. It is estimated that 11% of UK construction spending is on fit-outs and that buildings may have 30-40 fit-outs during their lifecycle.

How does it work?

The offices’ scheme consists of more than a hundred ‘good practice’ measures covering energy and CO2 emissions, waste, water, materials, pollution, wellbeing and transport.

This guidance is freely available along with an online assessment tool, which can be used informally or for formal certification using a RICS SKA rating accredited assessor. Assessments can be carried out at three stages:

  • Design
  • Handover
  • Occupancy

We are accredited and fully qualified professionals to undertake quality assured SKA rating certification on behalf of organisations.
