Energy systems commissioning
The energy commissioning of buildings is a process that intervenes at the final stage of building’s construction, involving engineering techniques and procedures to check, inspect and test every operational energy component.
The energy systems commissioning service consists in reviewing and documenting the commissioning technical specification, project information, system diagrams and start-up testing results in the frame of a LEED Certification. The commissioning supervision services includes:
- Review and documentation of the Owner Project requirements (OPR)
- Review and documentation of the Basis Of Design (BOD)
- Documentation of the Commissioning plan
- Review and incorporation of the start-up tests in the commissioning report
- Documentation of the full commissioning report according to LEED requirements
LEED and energy systems commissioning
Our energy commissioning supervision service documents compliance with:
LEED EA prerequisite 1 “Fundamental Commissioning of Building Energy Systems” requires to complete the commissioning (Cx) process activities for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and renewable energy systems and assemblies, in accordance with ASHRAE Guideline 0-2005 and ASHRAE Guideline 1.1–2007 for HVAC&R Systems, as they relate to energy, water, indoor environmental quality, and durability.
LEED EA credit 3 “Enhanced Commissioning” requires to implement, or have in place a contract to implement additional commissioning process activities to those required under EA Prerequisite Fundamental Commissioning and Verification.
