A complex process with simple results--
Your building works as designed…
In textbook terms, building systems commissioning is a systematic and documented process of ensuring that specific building systems perform interactively, according to the design intent and the owner’s operational needs. The goal of commissioning is to deliver a facility that operates as it was intended, meets the needs of the building owner and occupants, and provides proper training to the facility operators.
In reality, building systems commissioning is an important quality assurance service for the building industry. It is a good way of ensuring Owners get great buildings and return on their investment, is a component of risk reduction for new construction and major capital improvements, and is a comprehensive method of evaluating and “tuning up” performance in existing buildings. Commissioning is not just a one time process. It is applicable throughout the building’s life cycle from new construction, through renovations to periodic review of building operations.
