conventional concept of commercial building operations and
occupant experience. Download.
The ground is shifting under the commercial building industry
as it moves from a cost model of occupied space to a value
model. The epicenter of that shift involves the occupant
experience and its multiple impacts on the bottom line. Download.

The existing building environment directly and indirectly impacts the health, safety and productivity of occupants and operations, which makes the performance of a facility an important consideration. The basic underlying principle of building commissioning is just that - testing and inspecting systems, equipment, operations and controls to make certain they are working optimally, both in terms of effect and costs to achieve that effect.
