Commissioning

Building Commissioning is the process of verifying that all the Design, HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, Fire/Life Safety, Building Envelope, Interior, Cogeneration, Utility Plant, Lighting, Wastewater, Controls, Security, and Facility Specialty Systems achieve the owner’s project requirements as intended by the building owner. Building commissioning is a quality-focused process necessary for both non-complex and complex modern construction projects. The practice of Whole Building Commissioning has quickly become common practice as savvy building owners and developers have seen substantial returns on their investment. The ultimate goal of the commissioning process is to deliver for the owner a project that is fit for use, has reduced first cost of delivery and substantial life cost reductions and meets the needs of users and occupants, including a fully operational and optimized building and building systems.
