Topic: Complementary Building Commissioning Approach to Successful Building Operation
Building commissioning has increasingly become a standard in the construction industry. originating in the 1980s as a quality control process, building commissioning has since been developed by many organizations and formalized by ASHRAE and CSA. commissioning is now an important aspect in the building industry, whether it is for new construction or existing buildings. What is the impact of commissioning on building operation and maintainability? What is the key to success in implementing commissioning into a traditional construction process? What are the pitfalls? This presentation is going to discuss some case studies in how commissioning dove-tails into HVAC, electrical, and building envelope construction. The difference between fundamental commissioning and enhanced commissioning in reference to LEED commissioning will be explored as well.
