Advocating for Owner's Requirements Through New Building Commissioning (Cx)
New Building Commissioning (Cx) is a vital process that ensures buildings operate at maximum efficiency and meet the owner's objectives. Cx is a quality assurance process that begins during a building’s design phase and continues through construction, occupancy, and the operations & warranty phase. This comprehensive process verifies building systems and equipment are installed, tested, and operating according to the Owner's Project Requirements (OPR).
Commissioning is often misunderstood or overlooked during building design, construction, and occupancy. Cx assures that new facilities operate according to the Owner’s intent and that the facility staff is prepared to operate and maintain its systems and equipment. Commissioning can benefit any building project, regardless of size or complexity. New Building Commissioning is especially valuable for owners who have aggressive energy goals or want to achieve green building certifications like LEED or other Energy Conservation Measures (ECM).
