Principles of Building Commissioning: ASHRAE Guideline 0 and Standard 202

Share This

Course Length: 3 hours

This course presents the defining characteristics of the new construction commissioning process as defined by ASHRAE Guideline 0, The Commissioning Process, and ASHRAE/IES Standard 202, Commissioning Process for Buildings and Systems. The course explores the implications of employing the ASHRAE commissioning process during the acquisition of a building. Emphasis is placed on the importance of initiating the commissioning process during pre-design so that the owner’s project requirements (OPR) document can guide the verification of success across the design, construction, and operation phases of a building project. The supporting role played by other ASHRAE commissioning documents are also discussed.
This course combines and replaces two previous courses: Commissioning Process and Standard 202 and ASHRAE Guideline 0: The Commissioning Process. Revised commissioning objectives, activities, and deliverables are part of this introductory-level course.
