Perform Deferred and Seasonal Testing

Due to weather conditions, not all systems can be tested at or near full load during the Construction Phase.

For instance, testing of a boiler system might be difficult in the summer, and testing of a chiller and cooling tower might be dif­ficult in the winter. For these reasons, commissioning plans shall include offseason testing to allow for testing of certain equipment under the best possible conditions.

In addition to seasonal testing, several systems may have been deferred during the initial testing for a number of reasons includ­ing prerequisite activities not complete, phased occupancy issues, and improper testing conditions.

The commissioning team must use the Issues Log as a guide during post-construction stage to complete all deferred testing.
