Follow these best practices to ensure a building meets the performance standards required by the owner and design engineer.
Following a thorough commissioning process that incorporates best practices is essential in delivering a building that meets user requirements and design intent.
These are the most common deficiencies or challenges workers face when working on a commissioning project.
Commissioning electrical equipment ideally begins early in the design phase of the project and continues through the completion of functional performance testing.
Commissioning continues to expand to cover more systems, and energy-oriented existing building commissioning is still seen as the future. But a weak economic recovery and concerns about “commissioning lite” leave providers slightly more pessimistic than in 2011.
The complexity of lighting design has made commissioning of lighting controls an essential part of projects.
By examining all aspects of the HVAC system and its components—from design through commissioning—the system will run more efficiently and effectively.
