Building Commissioning, also referred to as Commissioning, is a quality based process which covers the design, construction, handover and post-occupancy phases of the project
The aim of Commissioning is to ensure the project has been designed, built and tested in accordance with the Owner’s project requirements. It is well suited to complex projects and projects that require full documentation of the construction and site acceptance testing outcomes for compliance or certification purposes.
The inclusion of Commissioning becomes a contractual requirement which binds the Owner, Design Team and the Construction Team to the agreed commissioning process. Third party verification from the CxA (Commissioning Authority) that commissioning is completed becomes a part of the project completion.
