5 Step Approach for Total Building Commissioning (Cx)

New Building Commissioning (Cx)

Building Commissioning is an investment in your facility and improves total cost of ownership.

Facility Owners and Managers are very familiar with the activities and responsibilities that come with facility ownership: design, construction, maintenance, energy costs, and occasional major renovations. However, the Commissioning Process is also very important but frequently overlooked. Many facilities have never been commissioned, which leads to poor equipment performance and higher ownership costs. Occupant health and comfort can also be negatively impacted as well.

What is Commissioning? In simple terms, Commissioning (Cx) is a process that keeps facilities under optimal operating conditions. This is accomplished by comparing actual operation with a series of predefined metrics and making the necessary corrections when a building falls short. Cx plays a critical role in ensuring the success of your project.

Based on when commissioning is carried out, and the existing building conditions at the time, different processes can be used which may include:

  • New Building Commissioning (Cx)
  • Re-Commissioning (ReCx)
  • Retro-Commissioning (RCx)
  • Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx)
