Body
Preamble

Building fundamental commissioning - a prerequisite for LEED rated buildings - is a quality-focused process for complex modern design and construction projects. For the MMB remodel/renovation project the commissioning scope includes the mechanical (HVAC), lighting, controls, and sustainable systems (solar photovoltaic panels and solar hot water). Generally the commissioning consultant - in a team environment - leads development of the owner’s project requirement (OPR), develops the commissioning scope/plan, develops benchmarks for success, reviews design documents and checklists for achieving the OPR, develops checklists and verifies construction checklists and submittals, develops training needs and evaluates training delivered by the contractors, witnesses and verifies construction phase testing, completes construction site verifications during the construction phase, and performs commissioning functional testing as the project nears completion. Enhanced commissioning allows the project team to earn additional LEED credit and the scope includes additional design review, review of all contractor submittals, development of a systems manual, verification of training for building operations personnel, and continued review of building operations within the one-year warranty period.

Energy modeling includes the simulation of the building to study energy consumption, estimated utility costs, and life-cycle costs of various energy related items such as mechanica...
