Building Commissioning Process in the Post-Construction Stage

8.7.4.1 Post-Construction Stage

Systems, assemblies, equipment, and components will tend to shift from their as-installed conditions over time.

In addition, the needs and demands of facility users typically change as a facility is used.

The post-construction stage allows for the continued adjustment, optimization, and modification of building systems to meet speci­fied requirements.

The objective of the post-construction stage is to maintain build­ing performance throughout the useful life of the facility.

The active involvement of the Commissioning Agent and the Commissioning Team during initial facility operations is an integral aspect of the commissioning process.

Commissioning activities during Post-Construction include issues resolution, seasonal testing, delivery of the Final Commi­ssioning Report, performing a post-occupancy review with the Customer Agency, and developing a plan for recommissioning the facility throughout its life cycle.
