Masterclass: The Value of Adding Commissioning to Your Project
September 24 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm$25 – $35
Experience and research demonstrates that Commissioning on a new construction project has the potential to bring significant value to a project. However, it can be challenging to understand the requirements and options of the various commissioning approaches and how they play together in the full gamut of design, construction, and occupancy phases. By hiring a Commissioning Agent just to comply with code or to check the box on a scorecard, owners and project teams miss out on the real potential they have at hand to deliver high quality buildings and systems, with functionalities as designed and expected by the owner.
This class will demystify the varieties of Commissioning requirements and options and instruct on how to apply Commissioning to maximize value to a project. Starting with the process for LEEDv4 BD+C Fundamental and Enhanced Commissioning, the presentation explains the approach and integration and specifically what clients and project teams should be expecting during the design, construction and occupancy phases. The presentation will also highlight the IGCC 2012 & 2018 Commissioning requirements (current & future Montgomery County code) and how they differ from LEED v4 requirements. The presentation then further goes into the interaction and relevance of “specialty” Commissioning disciplines such as Monitoring-Based and Building Enclosure Commissioning and how other LEED credits, such as energy modeling, can create synergies with the Commissioning process. The presentation is backed by real-world examples from projects in the United States and Europe and includes recent survey results on the costs and benefits of Commissioning.
