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.

Speaker: Derek Cheung, P. Eng

Derek Cheung has been a Professional Engineer since 2001 after graduating with a Master degree in Mechanical Engineering.  He has been in the engineering services field since graduation and later expanding into commissioning services since joining Isotherm Engineering Ltd. in 2007, which is a 40 year-old firm focusing on HVAC engineering and commissioning. He has been involved in numerous commissioning projects in the private and public sectors. He also has experience in energy audits, building condition assessments, and measurement and verification. This diverse expertise allows Derek to be versatile and effective in addressing issues arising from difference areas in the building industry, including mechanical, electrical, and building automation systems.

CO-OP STUDENTS: Winter 2017 Sections for ENG 1EE0

Engineering and Computer Science Co-op students: do you need to complete ENGINEER 1EE0 (the required co-op prep course)?  If so, the dates and times for Winter 2017 sections have been confirmed.

You will need to choose a section via your OSCARplus account (the University’s job posting and career event website).  To reserve your seat in one of the 1EE0 sections, log in to your OSCARplus account (; select “Events” on the left navigation bar, and then click on the “Engineering” calendar.  Search for a section by event type – Eng Co-op Course, or by date.  After reviewing the list of section offerings, sign up for the class that best fits your schedule.

A listing of 1EE0 course sections is also available by clicking on this LINK.

Why do students also have to sign up via OSCARplus?  Due to the limited number of 1EE0 sections originally scheduled and posted in MOSAIC, ECCS has scheduled additional class dates and times for the co-op prep course.

ADVANTAGE: You do NOT need to sign up for the same section as assigned to you in MOSAIC.  Students are welcome to attend another section if it is a more convenient time/date.  (If you have not registered for 1EE0 via Mosaic, please wait until you attend your section in the winter term for more details.)

BACHELOR OF TECHNOLOGY students: please speak with an ECCS staff member, in JHE A214, about your co-op prep class.
