Abstract

Building commissioning is a holistic quality process that spans from pre-design planning to post-construction operation and can be thought of as a checks-and-balances system providing a collaborative process for planning, delivering, and operating buildings that work as intended.  Architects and engineers, construction managers, LEED® consultants, trades and clients must work alongside commissioning authorities to ensure that the owner's project requirements are met. Understanding the role of commissioning can make this co-operation much more effective regarding time efficiency and financial and technical performance of a project. Commissioning is an integral and required component of LEED certification, requiring an understanding of its role in the LEED certification process by all stakeholders in the design, construction and occupancy timeline of a LEED-certified project.
