Introduction to Commissioning

WB CX 001, 1LU

Commissioning is a long-term investment in building performance. While commissioning makes up about 0.4% of the typical new construction building budget, the resulting average energy savings is 13% per year. We’ll review how commissioning helps save money, and define what the commissioning process is and how it works.

Most importantly, this presentation will familiarize audiences on why commissioning matters and how it contributes to promoting healthy buildings.

Learning Objectives:
  • Understand why it is important to have a commissioning team on all projects.
  • Explain what commissioning is and the top reasons it is beneficial.
  • Describe what the commissioning process looks like, and the differences between fundamental and enhanced commissioning.
  • Explain commissioning code requirements, such as the NYC Energy Code.
