Eh? What’s going on?

For the first time since I’ve been out of the country, I’m feeling out of the loop.  Catching up on some reading I found this in Building:

Faber Maunsell, the RICS and refurbishment specialist Skansen are to launch a green ratings system for fitting out commercial properties.

The online system will be launched at the end of October and rolled out at the beginning of next year. It will allow clients, contractors and consultants to calculate the environmental performance of their projects at the outset of refurbishment.

I have been under the (mistaken?) impression that BRE were to expand BREEAM for Offices to include fit-outs.  Have FM taken over or are they producing a completely new scheme?  Answers on the back of a postcard to the usual address please…
