Commissioning Program

The National Conference on Building Commissioning has established an official definition of ‘Total Building Commissioning’ as a “systematic process of assuring by verification and documentation, from the design phase to a minimum of one year after construction, that all facility systems perform interactively in accordance with the design documentation and intent, and in accordance with the owner’s operational needs, including preparation of operation personnel.”

Today’s use of commissioning recognizes the integrated nature of all building systems’ performance, which impact sustainability, workplace productivity, and security. Because all building systems are integrated, a deficiency in one or more components can result in sub-optimal operation and performance among other components.
