Specifications include, but are not limited to: Proposing firms shall review available project documents to identify all system equipment and
components associated with the building systems to be commissioned. Building systems to
be commissioned for this scope of work include:
• Building automation and energy management control systems
• Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems
• Domestic and process water pumping and mixing systems
• Lighting controls (if requested)
The CxP’s primary role during this phase is to review design documentation for the owner to
check for overall functionality of the mechanical and controls systems, as well as
maintainability and general life cycle costs which are in line with owners’ requirements and
standards. To perform this function the CxP will:
• Perform focused reviews of the mechanical drawings, and specifications at various
stages of development of the contract documents to ensure the specified mechanical
and controls systems can meet the owners functional and performance requirements.
• Review construction documents for compliance with owners standards for all equipment
types, and processes involving the mechanical and control systems.
• Provide written feedback to the design team outlining any concerns, participate in a
design review with the owner, and entire design and construction team to review
• Assist design team in the development of commissioning specifications for the project.
Coordinate this specification with Owner’s rep, architect and engineers and integrate the
commissioning specifications into the overall project specification package.
