Commissioning (Cx) involves an intensive quality assurance process that begins during design and continues through construction, occupancy, and operations. Cx confirms that a new building operates per the owner’s performance requirements, its design and operational control settings are formally documented and building staff receive effective “hands-on” training to operate and maintain its equipment/systems to their peak performance level.
Retrocommissioning applies the Cx process to existing buildings to improve building equipment/systems functionality and performance.
Recommissioning applies the Cx process to a previously commissioned building, often triggered by change in ownership, building usage, observed operational problems or excessive energy use. Ideally, a recommissioning plan is included as part of a new building's original Cx process.
