Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS)
LID Consulting undertake Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS) assessments providing smart sustainable solutions for all building project types.
Why would you choose LID?
We recommend practical solutions that improve the energy efficiency of your building, the quality of indoor and outdoor spaces, reduce water use, impacts on surrounding waterways and waste, and help deliver you a better development.
We are fast – reports are generally completed in one or two weeks of acceptance, but can be scheduled to meet your needs. We have previously put four members on a job to complete this within 3 hours and help a client out.
We have experience with all councils requiring BESS reports
Our reports are well respected by councils – we can provide names of council officers who have told us this!
Client Testimonials: “Highly recommended – excellent service.” David Fuller – BB Design Group – Building Designers.

The BESS is the new generation building sustainability tool developed by the Victorian Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE) in conjunction with input from industry. Low Impact Development (LID) Consulting has been involved in the industry consultation process and has successfully submitted feedback and recommendations for inclusion within this new tool. With 5 years experience in sustainability recommendations and submissions using the previous STEPS and SDS tools, LID Consulting is well placed to identify sustainability focussed options and manage development submissions using the new BESS tool.
Call us to discuss the most suitable sustainability inclusions for your particular project. We generally quote within 24 hours, and can deliver reports within 1-2 weeks or to meet specific timelines.
