Review Owner's Project Requirements & Basis of Design documentation for
Perform focused reviews of the design, drawings and specifications at various
stages of development (during design development and contract document
phases), as described in Exhibit 1.
Conduct/facilitate program review meetings at the beginning of each design
phase, before any design work is done
Assist and review the development and updating of the Owner's Project
Requirements and Basis of Design by design team members after each design
Update the Commissioning Plan in preparation for Construction Stage.
10. Develop full commissioning specifications for all commissioned equipment.
Coordinate this with the architect and engineers and integrate the commis-
sioning specifications into the overall project specification package. One or
more of the following documents can be used as a guide for content, rigor
and format: 1) Model Commissioning Plan and Guide Specifications, USDOE/
FEMP; Portland Energy Conservation, Inc. (PECI), 2) The HVAC Commissioning
Process, ASHRAE Guideline 1-1996. The PECI Document can be downloaded free
at http://www.peci.org and a copy of the ASHRAE document can be obtained by
contacting ASHRAE at 404-636-8400.
A. The commissioning specification will include general commissioning require-
ments common to all systems and assemblies and a detailed description
of the responsibilities of all parties, details of the commissioning process;
reporting and documentation requirements, including formats; alerts to co-
ordination issues, deficiency resolution; construction checklist and start-up
requirements; the functional testing process; specific functional test require-
ments, including testing conditions and acceptance criteria for each piece of
equipment being commissioned.
B. The specifications will clearly indicate who is witnessing and documenting
start-up of each commissioned system. The specifications will be clear as
to who is writing, directing, conducting and documenting functional tests
and regulatory-required tests. This may vary between systems, especially
between electrical and mechanical. Provide language to enhance current
project specifications to ensure comprehensive controls submittals, full
control contractor accountability for documented point-to-point checkout
and commissioning participation, comprehensive test, adjusting and balanc-
