As you probably know, commissioning is a systematic, documented, and collaborative process including inspection, testing, and training. It is conducted to confirm that a building and its component systems meet the requirements of the occupants and conform to the design intent. Commissioning is a quality assurance procedure applied to building construction throughout the entire project, through planning, design, construction, and operation.
Commissioning provides reliable, consistent building operation throughout the life of the structure. It does so by carrying the operations and maintenance theme throughout the project and identifying deficiencies during construction, not during occupancy. Here are seven mechanical/electrical problems frequently found and fixed while commissioning institutional building projects.
