b) Construction Document Review
c) Contractor Submittal Review
d) Systems Manual
e) Post Occupancy Review
Besides this a measurement and verification system can also be developed which provides for an ongoing accountability of building energy consumption over time. Commissioning services bring great value to any project. Besides focusing on design and construction areas for early improvement, commissioning services also improve the building energy system with a counter check to ensure that all the systems operate as per design and project requirements. The commissioning process affects all systems and assemblies. As an example, Water commissioning would include the irrigation system, plumbing fixtures and plumbing infrastructure. Similarly, Energy commissioning would cover HVAC system, lighting and energy generation equipments.
