See how the practices applied during new building commissioning (Cx) can be helpful with existing buildings.

PRESENTATION: Existing Building Commissioning

Formal commissioning is now an accepted practice in many construction projects. The commissioning process is described in ASHRAE Guideline 0 “The Commissioning Process”.  With owners and developers now recognizing the value of employing formal commissioning to new construction, they are looking to apply these same processes to existing facilities.  Is it reasonable to expect the same processes included in commissioning new construction projects to work equally well when commissioning existing facilities?  The broad consensus is no, and that’s why ASHRAE developed a new guideline for commissioning of existing facilities.  This document is called ASHRAE Guideline 0.2 “The Commissioning Process for Existing Building Systems and Assemblies”. The Existing Building Commissioning Process (EBCxP) is fundamentally different from new construction commissioning. With EBCx, the commissioning team is tasked with assessing existing building systems and conditions and comparing them and their capabilities to satisfy the owner’s current needs and requirements, which can differ from the original design.
