LEED Commissioning

Our Commissioning Management services cover all levels of the building commissioning process; Fundamental, Enhanced and Continuous.  They can be implemented singularly or in combination, and if wished can be integrated with our building tuning services that use the very latest in data visualisation, 3D modelling and simulation.

Fundamental Commissioning

The minimum process level required by the USGBC for LEED certification (EAp1), covering:

  • Commissioning of all energy consuming systems as well as any renewables
  • Development of a Commissioning Plan
  • Development of Owner Project Requirement (OPR) documents to LEED requirements
  • Review of Basis of Design (BOD) documents & other project documentation
  • Management of commissioning activities & documentation to LEED requirements
  • Verification that equipment/systems are constructed & function as designed
  • Delivery of Final Commissioning Report outlining results of process

Enhanced Commissioning

To meet the additional LEED credit (EAc3) and cover commissioning of non-LEED scope.  These services are intended to begin prior to the commencement of the construction documents phase and include:

  • Documentation of the focused design, construction & submittal reviews
  • Completion of a Systems Manual
  • 11th month pre-warranty inspection
  • Documentation of operation & maintenance training during closeout
  • Commissioning of non-LEED scope such as life safety, standby power, fire alarm, security and network systems
  • Post Occupancy Evaluation (POE)

Continuous Commissioning

A Measurement & Verification process ensures all systems are performing as specified and identifies any anomalies in equipment, operations procedures or user habits in the year after construction completion.  By undertaking this at regular periods throughout a building’s lifecycle you can ensure that optimal operation is continuously achieved as the building’s profile changes.  This can help reduce energy costs, assist with refurbishment and, over time, document and improve the efficiencies of energy conservation measures.

Measurement & Verification

Recording actual performance over the course of occupancy, and comparing that data with the estimated performance seen in design.  It can be applied to a variety of metrics including water use and indoor environmental quality.  However, the LEED EAc5 credit focuses only on energy performance.  Our services adhere to IPMVP (International Performance Measurement & Verification Protocol) and cover the 3 main routes:

  • Calibrated Simulation (for whole building systems)
  • Energy Conservation Measure isolation (for smaller buildings)
  • EnergyStar Portfolio Manager
