What is Commissioning? Building Commissioning is a process for verifying and documenting that the performance of buildings, systems, and sub-assemblies meets defined objectives and criteria. Commissioning is a quality-oriented process which sets out a framework for achieving the building owner's objectives. A commissioning effort can be integrated into the building acquisition process for a new construction effort or it can be undertaken as a stand alone project to improve the performance of existing buildings. What are the Benefits of Building Commissioning? 1. A 2009 study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory entitled found that incorporating building commissioning services into construction and renovation projects provides considerable services to the building owner through the life of the building . 2. According to the University of Wisconsin, the commissioning process: Reduces lifetime owning, operations, and occupancy cost of the building. Reduces the first delivery cost of the building. Provides clear documentation which can be used to better maintain buildings. 3. Commissioning creates a focus on verifying that the building owner's requirements have been met throughout the planning and construction phases so that more of the available project funds can be used for owner's, user's, and occupant's needs rather than towards unanticipated change orders, rework, or callbacks.

The table below demonstrates the importance of identifying and resolving problems early as the cost of resolving issues increases dramatically as the project time line advances.
