1 Commissioning Standards CSA Z320 CSA Z318 ASHRAE 202
2013 Green Real Estate Conference Commissioning Standards CSA Z320 CSA Z318 ASHRAE 202 William McCartney, CoQ, CPMP, CCP Isotherm Engineering Ltd.

2 Intent Understand the history and importance of the standards.
Highlights of the standards contents. What the standards are not. Beyond the standards.

3 Evolution Problematic Buildings and Poor Experience
Best Practices and Guidelines Standards

6 Post-Occupancy Phase (Training)
Poor Experience Post-Occupancy Phase (Training)

7 History 1982 – ASHRAE forms committee 1989 – ASHRAE Guideline 1
1996 – ASHRAE Guideline 1 revised 2000 – ASHRAE + NIBS to develop the Cx Process 2005 – ASHRAE / NIBS Guideline 0 2007 – ASHRAE Guideline 1 revised 2011 – ASHRAE SPC-202 created

8 Best Practices and Guidelines
BCA – New Construction Building Commissioning Best Practice 2011 California Commissioning Collaborative (CCC) – New and Existing Buildings Portland Energy Conservation, Inc. (PECI) – Retro-commissioning Guide Energy Design Resources – Building Cx Guidelines (2000/2001) International Code Council G Commissioning Guideline

9 Best Practices and Guidelines
ASHRAE Gdl The Cx Process Gdl HVAC&R Technical Requirements for The Commissioning Process Gdl 0.2 and 1.2 Existing Buildings – TBD Gdl 1.3 Training – TBD Gdl 1.4 Systems Manual – TBD Gdl 1.5 Smoke Control Systems Gdl 11 Field Testing of HVAC Controls Components

10 Standards Standards are minimum requirements Code language Adopted by
User in individual projects The code

11 Standards CSA Z320-11 Building Cx Std and Check Sheets

17 CSA Z318.0-05 Cx HCF Check Sheets (VP / CSP / PE) from SmartCD for:
HVAC Plumbing Fire Protection Building Automation Electrical VP: Verification Program; CSP: Contractor Start-up Program; PE: Performance Evaluation

18 ASHRAE Standard 202 Based on Gdl 0-2005, The Cx Process
Undergoing 2nd Public Review Release Date Summer 2013?

19 ASHRAE Standard 202 General process 17 Chapters
13 Functional steps and Deliverables 15 Informative Annexes

20 ASHRAE Standard 202 Chapters: Purpose Scope Definitions Utilization
Initiating the Cx Process Owner’s Project Requirements Commissioning Plan

21 ASHRAE Standard 202 Chapters: Basis of Design
Contractor/Supplier/Mfr Cx Requirements Design Review Commissioning Submittal Review Construction Observation and Testing Issues and Resolution Documentation

22 ASHRAE Standard 202 Chapters: Systems Manual Training
Post Occupancy Operation Commissioning Report

23 ASHRAE Standard 202 Highlights: Code language
Design Review types – Peer, Constructability, Code/Regulatory, Commissioning Verification vs. Evaluation Performance Test (Component and System Based) List of functional steps vs. phases Annexes

24 Comparison – CSA Std No OPR specifically Design Intent
Maintenance and data manual – A detailed document that provides the operating and maintenance requirements and associated data for the safe and efficient operation of specific pieces of equipment and systems. Systems operation manual (operations manual, systems manual) – A document that describes, in lay terms, the operation of all systems and equipment in a facility. An operations manual details modes of operation and includes associated diagrams that illustrate the sequence of operation for each system and interaction between individual systems.

25 Comparison – ASHRAE Std
OPR (Owners Project Requirements) BOD (Basis Of Design) Facility Guide – A basic building systems description and operating plan with general procedures and confirmed facility operating conditions, set points, schedules, and operating procedures for use by facility operations to properly operate the facility. Systems Manual – A system-focused composite document that includes the design and construction documentation, facility guide and operation manual, maintenance information, training information, commissioning process records, and additional information of use to the Owner during occupancy and operations. Extremely detailed Informative Annexes

26 Other Notable Guidelines
NFPA 3 – 2012 Recommended Practice for Commissioning and Integrated Testing of Fire Protection and Life Safety Systems NIBS GL Building Enclosure Commissioning Process BECx

27 Other Notable Guidelines
ASHRAE Gdl Preparation of Operating and Maintenance Documentation for Building Systems ASHRAE Gdl Sustainable, High-Performance Operations and Maintenance

28 Other Notable Guidelines
NIBS Total Building Commissioning Guidelines: ASHRAE – HVAC&R ASCE – Structural BETEC – Building Envelope NRCA – Roofing AWCI – Interior NEII – Elevator ASPE – Plumbing IES – Lighting IEEE – Electrical NFPA – Fire Protection TIA - Telecommunications

29 Now What? Commissioning is NOT: Completing manufacturer’s test forms
Contractor’s QC check Deficiency inspection Construction management

30 The Cx Key Additional catalysts for success:
Everybody is involved with the Cx Team CxA Experience and insight Applicable codes and specific guidelines Planning and foreseeing test scenario Good project management and scheduling Attitude
