Turnover Commissioning Record
Recommissioning Management Manual
The commissioning record includes a recommissioning management manual which provides guidance and establishes timelines for recommissioning building systems and components. The recommissioning management Manual is a requirement for LEED’s Energy and Atmosphere Credit 3.
It is critical to understand that commissioning documentation is developed throughout the project and turned over before substantial completion. Commissioning documentation turned over at this stage of the project is a result of a well-thought-out documentation plan and collection of information throughout all of the project phases. The following matrix outlines necessary documentation of the commissioning process by project phase in order to complete the Commissioning Record.
