Commissioning Stakeholders’ Guide
|Publication Date:||12 December 2018|
INTRODUCTION TO THE COMMISSIONING PROCESS
This chapter serves as a high-level strategic commissioning description that provides stakeholders with a basis for understanding enhanced delivery of new and existing building projects. It describes the value, benefits, and rationale for verifying and documenting that all of the commissioned systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the Owner's Project Requirements (OPR) for new construction and/or major renovations.
This guide is intended to establish and maintain consistent high-level commissioning goals and objectives, including performance, cost-effectiveness, consistency, and best practices. Commissioning can be applied to nearly all building systems and equipment.
