Cost-Benefit Analysis for Commissioning

Recent PECI studies indicate that on average the operating costs of a commissioned building range from 8% to 20% below that of a non-commissioned building.

Discussing the cost data for office buildings suggests that build­ing commissioning can result in energy savings of 20% to 50% and maintenance savings of 15% to 35%.

Beyond operating efficiency, successful building commission­ing has been linked to reduced occupant complaints and increased occupant productivity.
