“A recognized best practice, building commissioning is becoming the preferred process for delivering facilities that reduce energy consumption while maximizing environmental health and occupational safety,” SNC-Lavalin’s statement continued. “From healthcare facilities and pharmaceutical labs, to industrial, institutional, commercial and residential buildings, modern structures include a variety of sophisticated systems. Building commissioning includes verifying and documenting that all of the commissioned systems and assemblies are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated and maintained to meet the owner’s requirements. From pre-design to occupancy and operations, the process is a holistic, quality assurance-based approach that encompasses planning, delivery, verification and risk management.”
