Symposium Exposes the Value of Commissioning as a Building Owner’s Performance Tool

In recent years, building owners have grown increasingly interested in using building commissioning, the process of verifying building performance and methods, to assure that a building’s design intent is met during and after construction.

Commissioning is a valuable tool to help owners optimize a building’s performance, but confusion abounds as to what commissioning is, who is qualified to perform it and the different types of commissioning agents. The Commissioning Symposium: Optimizing Performance through Commissioning, to be held Thursday, January 9, 8:30 – 11:45 am, as part of Building Innovation 2014: the National Institute of Building Sciences Conference and Expo, aims to clear up some of that confusion by providing an introduction to the commissioning process.

Building commissioning has become a growing project management practice, focused on assisting both public- and private-sector building owners in reaching their performance goals. However, misperceptions about commissioning thrive across the building industry, from building owners, to design professionals, to code officials.

The half-day Commissioning Symposium will focus on the process of commissioning, the roles of key participants and the desired results. Speakers will also clarify the differences between commissioning for new construction and retro-commissioning for existing buildings.

Following an introduction to commissioning, two panels consisting of representative participants in the commissioning process will address commissioning for new buildings and retro-commissioning respectively. Audience members will then have an opportunity to get immediate feedback from the panelists in an interactive question and answer (Q&A) session.
