Commissioning

 

Commissioning is the engineering service and administrative act of recording and documenting the construction process and building systems operation from design through operation and maintenance.  Commissioning should be applied to both new and old buildings.

A P.E. Commissioning administrator (team of Architects and Engineers) working for the owner assures the design Architect/Engineer that the design intent was met and trains the system operator in performance analysis thus assuring the owner that the building will be comfortable.
