Commissioning is a quality-assurance process that is applied to systems and envelope to prove that performance meets a specification. Testing and documenting is the only way to confirm the operation and performance of
Commissioning process is likely to reduce the operational costs, however, by yielding 5%–15% improvements in
energy efficiency and ensuring that facilities personnel know how to operate key building systems. Commissioning
is the best efficient way to troubleshooting, such as; missing or incorrectly installed equipment or wrong or poorly
written code, avoiding occupant complaints and call-backs, indoor air quality and thermal comfort problems,
premature equipment failure, and litigation.
Wahdj Commissioning team verifies that the building’s systems operate as intended and according to the owner’s
requirements as set forth in project documents. Commissioning helps fill the gap between the design team, whose
members usually are not responsible for checking minor construction details, and subcontractors, who may
inadvertently err on key items, such as; fan power settings or sensor locations or program codes.
Wahdj Commissioning team also provides the owner with the expert oversight of an engineer or highly
Wahdj Commissioning team is a competent team in MEP and envelope Building Commissioning Procedures,
commissioning knowledge, skills and abilities. They took part in several mega-projects and LEED projects which
required strict commissioning process.
The team reviews project documents and design drawings, and then focuses primarily on the construction phase,
verifying the installation and operation of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, BMS, and renewable energy systems, in addition to the building enclosure.
They are responsible of reviewing contractor submittals, and verifying that owner requirements for the systems manual and operator training are incorporated in construction documents. After construction, Wahdj commissioning team compiles and then verifies the systems manual delivery, verifies the completion and effectiveness of operator training, verifies seasonal testing, develops an ongoing commissioning plan, and conducts a warranty phase review within ten months of building occupancy.
In addition to, the envelope commissioning process, as the envelope of the building represents the future fixed cost of energy in the building lifecycle. Wahdj Commissioning team performs envelope testing during early
Wahdj commissioning team is qualified in performing commissioning tasks from early design through ten months of
Wahdj commissioning team is highly preferred to be engaged before the end of the design development phase to give the team the opportunity to review the Owner project requirement report, basis of design report, and design documents; provide valuable insight into potential design optimization strategies; and begin implementing the commissioning process to ensure a coordinated effort during construction.
Wahdj commissioning team is responsible for developing a current facilities requirements (CFR) document,
commissioning plan, and operations and maintenance (O&M) plan. The CFR and O&M plan serve as a reference for the owner and the building operating personnel throughout occupancy, providing a comprehensive source of
information that can be used to diagnose whether a system is operating to its intended settings.
Wahdj commissioning team work activities are conforming to ASHRAE commissioning standards, and NIBS
guidelines, in documentation and testing procedures.
Wahdj commissioning team includes accredited ASHRAE’s (BCxP) - Building Commissioning Professional, and CEM –
Certified Energy Manager of The Association of Energy Engineers (AEE).
