Mechanical HVAC systems are the majority of systems included in the Cx process on many buildings because they have the largest impact on the overall energy performance of the building. Further, they are typically the most complex from a sequencing and control standpoint. How often does the control contractor get blamed for delaying the commissioning process due to incomplete work or issues?
This seminar will look at a project from a control contractor’s perspective to highlight the challenges that they typically face on a project and why they are often the critical path for the commissioning process. In addition, this seminar will provide strategies for the TAB firm and Cx Provider to develop a close working relationship with the controls contractor to assist one another to help eliminate delays and issues.
