If you refer back to my past Sustainable & Attainable blogs 10, 11, &12 discussing the Enhance Commissioning credit (LEED 2.2) requirement, I address the issues and concerns of providing a Systems Manual.
Within this Manual there is a requirement that the automatic
temperature control contractor provide their recommended recommissioning
requirements for their automatic control devices. Well, if you have had the opportunity to participate in a LEED
project and more specifically the compiling of the Systems Manual you will know
that there are three types of recommissioning methods;
Recalibrate pertains to those devices that can be
recalibrated on-site by the facility personnel. Recall is to return the component(s) to the manufacturer for
recalibration because the device cannot be recalibrated at the site. The third and final method of recalibration
you could say is a LEED oxymoron because these devices cannot be recalibrated
but instead are thrown away (hopefully in a environmentally correct recycle
So, when the opportunity comes for you to participate
in the Enhanced Commissioning credit and you take advantage of the blog
information and download the associated files, you can now include a “System
Component Recalibration Matrix to your LEED project Systems Manual.
