The commissioning process also establishes and records the” Owner’s Project Requirements (ORR)”; these are agreed upon by all Contractors engaged in work on a commercial or public works project. OPRs identify and describe the work to be performed and include: project scheduling, work scheduling, materials availability, materials cost, job site selection, materials usage, resource planning and allocation, and budget management. OPRs also specify and describe the level of management to be employed to guarantee that the project is delivered as designed.
In addition to producing an OPR and supporting documents, the Building Commissioning agent will also conduct or perform routine inspections and tests specified by the OPR. These tests and inspections will include: a) a visual check for compliance with required visual quality; b) a test of mechanical stability; c) a test of electrical and electronic facilities; d) a test of plumbing and drainage, e) a test of insulation and vapor resistance, f) a visual check of structural stability and g) a comparison of the total area of coverage with the model in use. The commissioned officer will record observations made during the inspection or testing program as well as findings noted in the reports filed by the inspector. All observations and findings are documented in a report that the Commissioning Agent can present to Management and / or the Project Sponsor (if applicable).
In order to qualify for building commissioning, it is necessary for contractors to have completed the necessary documentation to show they have met all of the aforementioned requirements.In Rirchardson addition to completing this documentation, a contractor must also register with the local HVAC Association and participate in an annual building maintenance program (BMMP). The purpose of the BMMP is to participate in an annual examination of the contractor’s activities performed during the previous year.Failure to register and complete the BMMP exam can result in the cancellation 75081 of a contractor’s certificate. Once the license is obtained, the contractor will be required to complete and submit an application that will need to be accompanied by:
Providing Comprehensive Building Commissioning Services. Building control systems and appliances must be in place to ensure proper cooling, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) of the facility.When purchasing new construction materials and components, contractors must check with testing adjusting and balancing the local HVAC Association to determine if the materials and components meet the standards as set forth in their manual. New construction personnel and management will also need to work with the Building Commissioning Agent to determine if current construction management systems are in compliance with the Commissioning Order.Texas All components of HVAC equipment must be appropriately tested and certified by the appropriate technicians.
Upon receipt of all testing and performance testing data from the testing companies, the HVAC Contractor will need to provide the BMP and MRO with a proposal on what changes or improvements will need to be made with the existing control system. The BMP and MRO will then take these into consideration to determine what areas need to be improved. The BMP and MRO will then work with the client to develop an implementation plan that details what changes will need to be made to the HVAC system and how long the changes will take to implement.The plan should include: start-up documentation, certification, inspection, maintenance, 1651 N Glenville Dr. Ste 201 and treatment.
Once the implementation plan has been developed and approved by the local government, the contractor is then able to commence the start-up process. The start-up documentation and all required equipment, materials and components should be ready and available before any customers start using the facility. The start-up documentation will include the contractor’s name and contact information, detailed design intent, and all pertinent contracts and warranties. The inspection team will also need to review the start-up documentation and verify that everything described in the intent of the design is completed and in good condition. Then the maintenance crew can be called upon to check-on all aspects of the facility, again making sure everything is running smoothly and securely. The last thing to do is to perform the routine inspection on the facility, once all of these steps have been followed, the HVAC contractor will be able to issue the final authorization to install the HVAC system
