Benefits of Building Commissioning
As Mechanical, Electrical, and Life Safety systems become more complex, some Owners have found themselves with systems that do not function to meet their needs; problems with control systems, maintenance access, long shake-down periods, inadequate documentation, and high operating costs are just a few of the problems encountered.
Commissioning helps ensure that these building systems are functional and maintainable.
The Design team also benefits by helping define, within the contract documents, Contractor participation and deliverables required for successful start-up/testing, and by early identification of problems through design review.
The Contractor team benefits through a systematic approach to quality assurance with the goal of obtaining final Certificate of Occupancy within the construction schedule.
