BSRIA publishes new guidance on seasonal commissioning

Published:  08 March, 2013

BSRIA, seasonal commissioning

With growing recognition that not all aspects of commissioning a building and its engineering systems can be carried out during the normal contract period, BSRIA has published a new guide to seasonal commissioning (BG 44/2013), The publication defines what seasonal commissioning is, the reasons for carrying it out and which tasks and activities fall under the scope of seasonal commissioning.

Also discussed are the requirements for seasonal commissioning within the various environmental assessment tools such as BREEAM and LEED. Clear distinctions between seasonal commissioning and extended activities associated with Soft Landings and other post-occupancy changes are also shown.

The publication focuses on what seasonal commissioning is and the issues surrounding it, rather than explaining how to carry it out.
