Course Length: 6 hours
(Co-sponsored by Building Enclosure Commissioning Collaborative)
This seminar introduces the Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) process by outlining key quality-based tasks that achieve a successful building enclosure. The seminar focuses on both design phase and construction phase BECx activities. Topics include: developing the Owner’s Project Requirements; creating the BECx plan; critical building science and architectural issues to address in design review and specifications; construction observation; and performance testing. The seminar also describes how an Owner’s risk can be reduced by undertaking BECx, LEED V4 BECx requirements, and commissioning goals. The intended audience includes building owners and developers, architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors, and commissioning authorities. This seminar is a collaboration of ASHRAE and the Building Enclosure Commissioning Collaborative (BECxC).
