SKA rating for Higher Education is here


SKA rating for Higher Education (SKA HE) is our latest environmental assessment tool for the higher education sector.

SKA HE has been designed by the industry for the industry to meet the requirements of higher education interior fit-outs and refurbishments to meet clear sustainable good practice.

SKA HE is based on SKA rating methodology and is evolved to reflect the specific requirements of a Higher Education estate including:

  • lecture theatres
  • laboratories
  • and other specialist educational uses.


The scheme is supported by the Association of University Directors of Estates, University College London (UCL), Rider Levett Bucknall, Grigoriou Interiors, Overbury and AECOM, in addition to the SKA Technical Committee and a wider industry research team.

UCL has adopted RICS SKA to promote good practice in sustainability across its portfolio of projects. As a result, we have delivered significant savings as well as ensuring that the university is acting responsibly. We have also supported the upskilling of UCL project staff, enabling them to get a better understanding of our sustainability goals.
