WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE Cx REQUIREMENT?
There is a saying in construction that a project can be finished on time, on budget, or 100% complete: pick any two. Commissioning significantly increases the likelihood that technical details such as system configurations, HVAC air and water flow rates, occupancy and temperature settings, and the record drawings are correct and complete. Getting these technical details right can have a significant impact on the long-term performance of the building systems. However, these types of details are often not addressed until the end of a project when time is short and budgets are nearly spent. Commissioning requirements in the WSEC elevate the priority for this important step in the construction process
