Commissioning LEED Projects
Green Building Services, Inc.
Building commissioning is a holistic process that spans from pre-design planning to post-construction operation and can be thought of as a checks-and-balances system, providing a collaborative process for planning, delivering, and operating buildings that work as intended. Architects and engineers, construction managers, LEED consultants, trades and clients must work alongside commissioning agents to ensure that the Owner's Project Requirements are met. Understanding the role of commissioning can make this cooperation much more effective with regards to time efficiency and financial and technical performance of a project. Commissioning is an integral and required component of LEED certification, requiring an understanding of its role in the LEED certification process by all stakeholders in the design, construction and occupancy timeline of a LEED-certified project. Watch this webinar to understand the value of commissioning to any building project with focus on the financial case for commissioning, roles and responsibilities of key players, how to implement commissioning with an integrated design process and the integral role of commissioning in LEED certification.
