Commissioning (Cx) is an intensive quality assurance process that begins at the design phase of a new building and continues throughout its construction, occupation and operation. Cx ensures that the new building functions as the owner initially intended and that the building staff can operate the building and ensure its maintenance.
CanmetENERGY developed a guide to assist engineers, technicians, managers, owners and stakeholders of institutional and commercial buildings throughout the various steps of the Cx process.
