Course Description

Full-Day Professional Development Seminar - 6 Hour

Registration fees: $510 ($415 ASHRAE Member)
Saturday, 8:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

This introductory seminar focuses on how the building commissioning process can be applied cost-effectively to new construction and to existing facilities, with a strong emphasis on existing facilities applications. In this course, you will learn the fundamentals of the commissioning process through each step of a new construction project from predesign to occupancy and operations. You will also learn how the application of the commissioning process in existing facilities differs from new construction. Learn about the benefits of commissioning and gain an appreciation for how the process can improve the built environment, reduce environmental impacts through responsible resource utilization, improve the quality of design and construction, and raise the professional reputation of the entire commissioning team. We will discuss commissioning documentation, including an overview of commissioning specifications for new construction. You will take away compelling information and case studies that demonstrate the value of investing in the commissioning process.
