Program Overview

This program will provide a comprehensive introduction to the process of Building Commissioning, and its value in both new and existing buildings for healthy indoor air quality, energy efficiency, and occupant comfort.

The program will

  • Demystify what commissioning is, what it does,
  • What is required to achieve commissioning,
  • Who should be on the commissioning team,
  • When commissioning may be required in your project,
  • The costs of commissioning, and
  • The differing types of commissioning processes.

The program is not intended to teach professionals how to do building commissioning, but rather teach them how they can use commissioning more effectively in their buildings: what to expect, what to demand in return, and what are the primary deliverables.   Using real-life Maine case examples of commissioning, the seminar will highlight the value of commissioning for many types of projects, the costs to effectively commission buildings, and strategies to control commissioning costs.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for anyone who may use or benefit from commissioning services of any type:  building owners and managers, facilities operators/directors, developers, contractors, architects, engineers, construction managers, and school administrators.
