Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
4. Roles and Responsibilities

4.1 Team Members

The members of the commissioning team consist of the Owner’s representative, CxA, assigned members
of the GC, A/E (particularly the mechanical engineer), the mechanical contractor, plumbing contractor,
and any other installing subcontractors or suppliers of equipment. If known, the Owner’s building
engineer is also a member of the commissioning team.

All contr actor per sonnel on the commissioning team ar e to make themselves familiar with
LEED Pr er equisite 1 EA commissioning pr ocess.

4.2 General Management Plan

The CxA was hired by the Owner directly. In general, the CxA coordinates the commissioning activities
and reports to the Owner. The CxA’s responsibilities, along with all other contractors’ commissioning
responsibilities are detailed in the Cx plan and specifications. The Specifications will take precedence
over this Cx Plan. All members work together to fulfill their contracted responsibilities and meet the
objectives of the Contract Documents. Refer to the management protocols section below.

4.3 General Descriptions of Roles


General descriptions of the commissioning roles are as follows:
CxA : Coordinates the Cx process, writes tests, oversees and documents performance tests
GC : Facilitates the Cx process, ensures that Subs perform their responsibilities and
integrates Cx into the construction process and schedule
Subs : Demonstrate proper system performance and provide all necessary equipment for
testing
A/E : Perform construction observation, approve O&M manuals and assist in resolving
problems
Mfr. : The equipment manufacturers and vendors provide documentation to facilitate the
commissioning work and perform contracted startup

5. Commissioning Process
This section sequentially details the commissioning process by commissioning task or activity.

5.1 Commissioning Scoping Meeting

A commissioning scoping meeting is planned and conducted by the CxA. In attendance are the repre-
sentatives of the Owner, GC, A/E and the mechanical and plumbing contractors. At the meeting, com-
missioning parties are introduced, the commissioning process is reviewed, and management and reporting
lines are determined. The flow of documents, how much submittal data the CxA will receive, etc. are also
discussed. The Cx Plan is reviewed, process questions are addressed, lines of reporting and communica-

Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
tions determined and the work products list is discussed. Also covered are the general list of each party’s
responsibilities, which party is responsible to develop the startup plan for each piece of equipment and the
proposed commissioning schedule. The outcome of the meeting is increased understanding by all parties
of the commissioning process and their respective responsibilities. The meeting provides the CxA addi-
tional information needed to finalize or modify the Cx Plan, including the commissioning schedule. Prior
to this meeting the CxA is given all drawings and specifications and the construction schedule by trade.
The CxA keeps notes from the meeting and distributes them to each team member.

5.2 Final Commissioning Plan--Construction Phase

The CxA finalizes the Cx Plan using the information gathered from the scoping meeting. The initial
commissioning schedule is also developed along with a detailed timeline. The timeline is fine-tuned as
construction progresses. In particular, 60 days prior to startup of the primary equipment, the CxA meets
with the GC and develops a detailed commissioning schedule. The CxA approves the commissioning
plan.

5.3 Site Observation

The CxA, and CM if applicable, makes periodic visits to the site, as necessary, to witness equipment and
system installations.

5.4 Meetings

The CxA attends selected planning and job-site meetings in order to remain informed on construction
progress and to update parties involved in commissioning. The GC provides the CxA with information
regarding substitutions, change orders and any Architect’s Supplemental Instructions (ASI) that may af-
fect commissioning equipment, systems or the commissioning schedule. The CxA may review construc-
tion-meeting minutes, change orders or ASI's for the same purpose. Later during construction, necessary
meetings between various commissioning team parties will be scheduled by the CxA, through the GC, as
required.

5.5 Management Protocols


The following protocols will be used on this project.

5.6 Progress Reporting and Logs

At the beginning of construction, the GC provides the CxA with monthly progress reports. Thirty (30)
days prior to the startup of the first piece of major equipment, the frequency of progress reports is in-
creased to twice per month, until startup is completed. Thirty (30) days before Prefunctional or Functional
testing of equipment begins, weekly progress reports are required until testing and all non-conformance
issues are resolved. The CxA may adjust the reporting frequency as needed. The progress reports con-
tain: an update of the schedule with list of requested schedule changes and new items added to the sche-
dule, a list of new and outstanding deficiencies, a description of commissioning progress corresponding to
the plan, etc. The CxA keeps a log of all commissioning-related issues that require current or future at-
tention. The CxA regularly communicates with all members of the commissioning team, keeping them
apprised of commissioning progress and scheduling issues through memos, progress reports, etc.. The
CxA will keep all commissioning materials in an organized notebook.

5.7
Not used

5.8 Prefunctional Checklists, Tests and Startup

Prefunctional checklists (PC) are important to ensure that the equipment and systems are connected and
operational, and that Functional Performance Testing may proceed without unnecessary delays. Each
piece of equipment receives full prefunctional checkout by the Contractor. No sampling strategies are
used. In general, the prefunctional testing for a given system must be successfully completed prior to
formal functional performance testing of equipment or subsystems of the given system.
Prefunctional checklists are primarily static inspections and procedures to prepare the equipment or sys-
tem for initial operation (e.g., oil levels OK, fan belt tension, labels affixed, gages in place, sensor calibra-
tion, etc.). However, some prefunctional checklist items entail simple testing of the function of a compo-
nent, a piece of equipment or system (such as measuring the voltage imbalance on a three phase pump
motor of a chiller system). The word prefunctional refers to before functional testing. Prefunctional
checklists augment and are combined with the manufacturer’s start-up checklist.
Contractors typically already perform some, if not many, of the prefunctional checklist items the commis-
sioning authority will recommend. However, few contractors document in writing the execution of these
checklist items. This project requires that the procedures be documented in writing by the installing tech-
nician. The CxA does not witness much of the prefunctional check listing, except for testing of larger or
more critical pieces of equipment and some spot-checking. CONTRACTOR IS TO SUBMIT TO THE
CxA THEIR PREFUNCTIONAL STARTUP DOCUMENT FORMS FOR REVIEW AND COMMENT
PRIOR TO STARTING SYSTEMS.

Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
5.8.1 Start-up Plan
The CxA assists the commissioning team members responsible for startup in developing detailed start-up
plans for all equipment. The parties responsible for each part of startup and initial checkout are noted on
the prefunctional checklists.

The following procedures will be used for this project: (the contractor is responsible for the plan devel-
opment):
1. The CxA adapts and enhances, if necessary, the representative prefunctional checklists (PC)
and procedures, and assists to develop original lists when necessary.
2. The CxA transmits them to the GC who designates which trade or contractor is responsible to
fill out each line item (mark in the “Contr” column) on the Prefunctional Checklist from the
CxA. The GC then transmits the checklist to the responsible Subs.
3. The Sub designated to develop the Start-up Plan obtains manufacturer installation, start-up
and checkout data, including actual field checkout sheets used by the field technicians.
4. The Sub copies all pages with important instructional data and procedures (not covered in
manufacturer field checkout sheets) from the start-up and checkout manuals and adds a signa-
ture line in the column by each procedure.
5. The copied pages from (4), along with the prefunctional checklist provided by the GC (origi-
nally from the CxA) and the manufacturer field checkout sheets become the “Start-up and
Checkout Plan.”
6. For systems that may not have adequate manufacturer start-up and checkout procedures, par-
ticularly for components being integrated with other equipment, the Sub should provide the
added necessary detail and documenting format to the CxA for approval, prior to execution.
7. The Sub transmits the full Start-up Plan to the CxA for review and approval.
8. The CxA reviews and approves the procedures and the format for documenting them and not-
ing any procedures that need to be added, and conveys to the CM. The CM then transmits the
full start-up plan to the Subs for their review and use. (This usually means that the Prefunc-
tional Checklist, alone, will go to more than one Sub, while the full plan will go to the prima-
ry installing contractor.)

5.8.2 Execution of Checklists and Startup


Four weeks prior to startup, the Subs and vendors schedule startup and initial checkout with the GC and
CxA. The startup and initial checkout are directed and executed by the Sub or vendor. The CxA, and GC
if necessary, observes, at minimum, the procedures for each piece of primary equipment, unless there are
multiples. For components of equipment, (e.g., condensing units), the CxA observes a portion of the pre-
functional and start-up procedures. To document the process of startup and checkout, the site technician
performing the line item task initials and dates each paragraph of procedures in the “Startup Plan” and
checks off items on the prefunctional and manufacturer field checkout sheets, as they are completed. On-
ly individuals having direct knowledge of a line item being completed shall check or initial the forms. The
Subs and vendors execute the checklists and tests and submit a signed copy of the completed start-up and
prefunctional tests and checklists to the CxA. The CxA may review prefunctional checklists in progress,
as necessary.

5.8.3 Sampling Strategy for CxA Observation of Prefunctional Checkout and Startup
A small percentage of equipment as determined by the CxA shall be witnessed during prefunctional
checkout and startup. This is at the CxA discretion.

Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
5.8.4 Deficiencies and Non-Conformance
The Subs clearly list any outstanding items of the initial start-up and prefunctional procedures that were
not completed successfully at the bottom of the procedures form or on an attached sheet. The procedures
form and deficiencies are provided to the CxA within two days of test completion. The CxA works with
the Contractors, Subs and vendors to correct and retest deficiencies or uncompleted items, involving the
CM and others as necessary. The installing Subs or vendors correct all areas that are deficient or incom-
plete according to the checklists and tests. The CM recommends approval of the startup and initial
checkout of each system to the CxA when complete.

5.8.5 TAB
The TAB contractor submits the outline of the TAB plan and approach to the CxA and the controls con-
tractor four weeks prior to starting the TAB. The CxA reviews the plan and approach for understanding
and coordination issues and may comment, but does not “approve.” The TAB submits weekly written
reports of discrepancies, contract interpretation requests and lists of completed tests to the CxA and GC.
This facilitates quicker resolution of problems and will result in a more complete TAB before functional
testing begins. A checklist form for reviewing the TAB plan is provided as one of the prefunctional
checklists. TAB work will not begin until the control system has been prefunctionally tested.

5.8.6 Controls Checkout Plan


The controls contractor develops and submits a written step-by-step plan to the CxA which describes the
process they intend to follow in checking out the control system and the forms on which they will docu-
ment the process. The controls contractor will also meet with the TAB contractor prior to the start of
TAB and review the TAB plan to determine the capabilities of the control system for use in TAB. The
controls contractor shall also provide a technician qualified to operate the controls to assist the TAB con-
tractor in performing TAB. All CxA-required controls prefunctional checklists, calibrations, start-up and
selected functional tests of the system shall be completed and approved by the GC prior to TAB. The
controls contractor shall execute the tests and trend logs assigned to them for mechanical system testing
as assigned to them.

5.9 Development of Functional Test and Verification Procedures

5.9.1 Overview
Functional testing is the dynamic testing of systems (rather than just components) under full operation.
Systems are tested under various modes, such as during low cooling or heating loads, high loads, compo-
nent failures, unoccupied, varying outside air temperatures, fire alarm, power failure, etc. The systems
are run through all of the control system’s sequences of operation and components are verified to be res-
ponding as the sequences state. The commissioning authority develops the functional test procedures in a
sequential written form, coordinates, oversees and documents the actual testing, which is performed by
the installing contractor or vendor. The CxA only is to witness and document the testing. All hands on is
performed by the contractor or their subs. Contractor is to supply all test equipment necessary to perform
the functional testing as outlined by the CxA.

5.9.2 Scope of Testing (Additional)


All specific testing requirements are to be included in the bid documents per the original specifications.
Any additional equipment testing required by the CxA, which is not included in the original contract is to
be handled per project PCO procedures.

Mt. Pleasant Library 01810-13 4 December 2009


Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
5.9.3 Development Process
Before test procedures are written, the CxA obtains all requested documentation and a current list of
change orders affecting equipment or systems, including an updated points list, control sequences and set
points. The CxA develops specific test procedures to verify proper operation of each piece of equipment
and system, using the testing requirements and the representative test procedure. The GC obtains clarifi-
cation, as needed, from contractors and the A/E regarding sequences and operation to develop these tests.
Prior to execution, the GC provides a copy of the primary equipment tests to the installing Sub to the CxA
who reviews the tests for feasibility, safety, warranty and equipment protection. Blank copies of the pro-
cedures are input into the O&M manuals by the GC, for later use by operations staff. Functional testing
and verification may be achieved by manual testing (persons manipulate the equipment and observe per-
formance) or by monitoring the performance and analyzing the results using the control system’s trend
log capabilities or by stand-alone data loggers. The CxA follows the uses judgment where needed to de-
termine which method is most appropriate, but the final decision as to the testing approach is with the
CxA.

5.9.4 Testing Plan Overview


To provide the contractors with a better idea of where functional testing lies in the schedule, what issues
are preventing the start of testing, which contractors are needed for each test and how much time might be
expected from them, Form for Commissioning Functional Testing Plan Overview, is used. This form is
filled out after most equipment has been started up and when functional testing dates are not too far off.
The form is provided to the Contractors to assist in moving more efficiently to functional testing.

5.10 Execution of Functional Testing Procedures

5.10.1 Overview and Process


The CxA schedules functional tests through the GC and affected Subs. For any given system, prior to
performing functional testing, the CxA waits until the prefunctional checklist has been submitted with the
necessary signatures, confirming that the system is ready for functional testing. The CxA oversees and
witnesses the functional testing as necessary, of equipment and systems according to the Cx Plan.
The Subs execute the tests. The control system is tested before it is used to verify performance of other
components or systems. The air balancing is completed before functional testing of air-related systems.
Testing proceeds from components to subsystems to systems and finally to interlocks and connections
between systems.

5.10.2 Deficiencies and Retesting


The CxA documents the results of the test. Corrections of minor deficiencies identified are made during
the tests at the discretion of the CxA. The CxA records the results of the test on the procedure or test
form. Deficiencies or non-conformance issues are noted and reported to the GC through (Commissioning
Corrective Action Report). Subs correct deficiencies, notify the GC and return the form certifying correc-
tion. The GC schedules retesting. Decisions regarding deficiencies and corrections are made at as low a
level as possible, preferably between GC and Sub. For areas in dispute, final authority, besides the Own-
er’s, resides with the CxA and A/E. The GC recommends acceptance of each test to the CxA. The GC
gives final approval on each test in writing. In the event that any scheduled equipment or system
start-ups or functional performance tests are terminated more than once because the CxA or me-
chanical engineer discover deficient or incomplete work, or due to the non-attendance of required
contractor or supplier personnel, the contractor or subcontractor responsible for the termination
shall also be responsible for paying reasonable costs of time and travel expenses for the representa-
tives who were physically present for the purpose of witnessing the start-up or test.

Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
5.10.3 Facility Staff Participation
The Owner’s facilities operating staff are encouraged to attend and participate in the testing process. The
contractor is to document a list of personnel present to witness functional testing. This form does not de-
scribe their involvement in formal training. The GC will notify the CxA of who will attend, and then no-
tify the facility staff when the commissioning events will occur.

5.10.4 Sampling
Multiple identical pieces of non-life-safety or otherwise non-critical equipment may be functionally tested
using a sampling strategy. The CxA shall determine this sampling per past sampling success.

5.11 O&M Manuals

5.11.1 Standard O&M Manuals


The CxA reviews the O&M manuals, documentation and redline as-builts for systems that were commis-
sioned to verify compliance with the Specifications. The CxA recommends approval and acceptance of
these sections of the O&M manuals to the GC. The CxA also reviews each equipment warranty and veri-
fies that all requirements to keep the warranty valid are clearly stated.

5.11.2 Commissioning Record


The CxA will compile, organize and index the commissioning data into labeled, indexed and tabbed,
three-ring binders and deliver it to the A/E, to be included with the O&M manuals. The correspondence,
meeting minutes and progress reports, miscellaneous notes, etc. kept in the Commissioning Record Book
during construction will not be retained into this record and the O&M manuals.

5.12 Training and Orientation of Owner Personnel

5.12.1 Training and documentation is not part of LEED fundamental commissioning, but is to be carried
out in its entirety per the project plans and specifications.

5.13 Warranty Period

During the warranty period, seasonal testing and other deferred testing required is completed. The GC
coordinates this activity. Tests are executed and deficiencies corrected by the appropriate Subs, witnessed
by facilities staff and or the CxA. Any final adjustments to the O&M manuals and as-builts due to the
testing are made. In addition the GC will return to the project approximately 10 months into the warranty
period. During this visit(s) the GC will review with facility staff the current building operation and the
condition of outstanding issues related to the original and seasonal commissioning. The GC will also in-
terview facility staff and identify problems or concerns they have operating the building as originally in-
tended. The GC will make suggestions for improvements and for recording these changes in the O&M
manuals. The GC will identify areas that may come under warranty or under the original construction
contract. The GC will also assist facility staff in developing reports and documents and requests for ser-
vices to remedy outstanding problems.

8. LEED Fundamental Commissioning Outline:

General:

The systems outlined in the specifications, project documents, and commissioning plan are to be fully
verified as functional working systems through the effort of the commissioning team with the leadership
of the Cx authority. The Cx process shall begin with a review and comment of the design concept, and
continue through the final operational verifications.
The system design review by the CxA is indented as a cursory review of the overall systems design to
verify that it meets the LEED criteria outlined for this project. The owner project requirements (OPR),
and the MEP bases of design (BOD) shall be reviewed for their intent and compatibility. All design issues
or recommendations shall be forwarded to the design team for their review and action as deemed appro-
priate.
As the project enters the construction phase the Cx authority shall meet with the Cx team, which shall
consist of but is not limited to the following professionals and tradesmen.

The commissioning is led by the Commissioning Authority (CxA), whom is acting on the owner’s behalf,
and is the lead person of the Cx team.
Owners Representative (OR), which may in some cases be the CxA
Building Operational Personnel (BOP),
Design Engineers (EA), Architect (AE)
General Contractor (GC)
Mechanical Contractor (MC)
Electrical Contractor (EC)
TAB Contractor (TAB)
Building Automation System Contractor (BAS)
Other professionals or tradesmen that may be necessary for the particular portion or scope of the project.

The intent is to have qualified personnel as members of the Cx team who have the authority to ex-
ecute the commissioning plan and who are dedicated to the LEED process and the owner’s objectives rel-
ative to sustainability and green building design.
The construction process is the phase of the project, which obviously receives the majority of at-
tention during commissioning. A brief description of the intended process is to follow. Equipment out-
lined in the Cx process is used for commissioning process description only, and may not represent the
actual/installed MEP devises and equipment used on this project. The description is generic in nature and
is intended to create an understanding of the general construction commissioning process for the refe-
renced project.
A general description of the Cx activities from the design phase through the construction and acceptance
phases is outlined for a general understanding of the commissioning LEED CS 2.0 prerequisite and en-
hanced commissioning activities required for this project. It is to be understood that the commissioning
process requires a total team effort to be successful.

Early Construction Phase:


During the early stages of construction, the CxA or commissioning team member(s) chosen by the
CxA, shall review the equipment submittals as they relate to the BOD and LEED requirements. The CxA

Mt. Pleasant Library 01810-17 4 December 2009


Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
submittal review responsibilities are limited to LEED Cx requirements, with the final action/disposition
being the responsibility of the design team and/or owner.
The general contractor (GC) is to create a construction schedule during this phase of construction, and
issue the schedule to the entire commissioning team for review and comment. The schedule is to be reeva-
luated by the GC and owner on a monthly (or more frequent) basis and submitted to the commissioning
team for review and Cx scheduling coordination purposes.
During the later part of this phase, the first of a series of commissioning meetings is to take place. The
first commissioning meeting shall be referred to as the commissioning “Kick Off “meeting. The kick off
meeting is to include a brief discussion of the commissioning plan, selection of the Cx team members and
review and discussion of the project schedule. The GC, through the direction of the CxA, shall have the
responsibility of scheduling all meetings throughout the entire construction and Cx process.

Construction Phase:
The construction phase is the project evolvement from early construction to the start of the acceptance
phase. During the construction phase, the CxA shall schedule commissioning meetings as necessary
through the GC. Meetings are to take place only in the event that the commissioning process is not being
followed properly, or if scheduling issues arise. A meeting shall be scheduled just prior to contractor start-
ing equipment designated as “Commissioned Equipment “(such as, HVAC , major electrical and plumb-
ing systems) for the first time. In lieu of non scheduled Cx meetings, most ongoing Cx related issues may
be addressed via phone conferences with the CxA. Meeting minutes generated from non-commissioning
meetings are to be submitted to the CxA within one week of the meeting. Minutes of scheduled commis-
sioning meetings shall be the responsibility of the CxA or someone appointed by the CxA.
During construction, MEP systems testing is to be verified by designated member of the Cx team and
associated record documents shall be signed by both the contractor and the designated Cx team witness
and shall be submitted to the CxA within one week of testing. The test record shall be reviewed and in-
serted in the final commissioning report by the CxA. Test documents may also be required to be submit-
ted to the design engineer as specified.
Prior to startup of equipment, which is part of the construction phase, the contractor is to submit man-
ufacturer’s startup procedure documents to the CxA for review and comment. Further startup proce-
dures/requirements may be submitted from the CxA to the contractor in the form of prefunctional test
documents. This process is intended to ensure proper and safe system startup in preparation for successful
functional testing, which will take place during the acceptance phase of the project. It is of the greatest
importance that the contractor complete all startup document checklists for EACH piece of equipment and
submit them to the CxA within one week of successful equipment startup.
Once the equipment has been successfully started, and startup documents submitted to the CxA, the
control contractor is to perform the point to point checkout of the BAS system. The control contractor is
then to assist the TAB contractor in total system balance as outlined in the construction documents. Prior
to the BAS and the TAB contractor verification process, they are to submit their verification procedures
narrative to the CxA for review and comment. At the completion of the TAB system verification, the
TAB contractor is to also submit a copy of the balance report to the CxA for review. The CxA shall wit-
ness portions of the equipment startup and BAS/TAB verification processes’ on an unannounced basis,
and submit any issues that arise in writing to the architect for distribution.
At this juncture of the project, the building should be 98% complete and close to readiness for occupancy.
The commissioning process should now to move to the acceptance phase.

Construction Acceptance Phase:


As we enter the acceptance phase of the project the building should be basically ready for occupancy.
Normal building utilities services are to be completely functional, and the contractor’s and architect’s
punch lists should be close to completion. The contractors shall have submitted all required documents
and verified readiness for systems functional testing. (Note: CxA is to receive all required startup docu-

Mt. Pleasant Library 01810-18 4 December 2009


Allen & Shariff Engineering GENERAL COMMISSIONING REQUIREMENTS
ments at least three weeks prior to functional testing to allow adequate time for the creation of the func-
tional testing documents)
The CxA shall then create the functional test procedures for all systems outlined in the commission-
ing plan and specifications. Functional testing shall include all normal, emergency, and failure modes of
operation. Functional testing shall verify all control point to point operations and the TAB results on a
random sampling basis. The CxA shall only witness and document the functional testing. The appointed
commissioning team contractor technician or factory representative, shall perform the actual testing of the
systems. This may require multiple commissioning team members, such as, contractor technicians from
the mechanical, electrical, BAS, TAB, GC, ect., as needed for each system to be tested. Some systems
under functional testing may require only a portion of the systems to be tested, such as, multiple small
systems like VAV’s or small split D/X equipment. These systems shall be tested on a representative sam-
pling basis of total systems of the same type. These systems shall be tested at the discretion of the CxA
until a satisfactory quantity of systems is successfully demonstrated.
It is recommended that building maintenance personnel be present during functional testing to aid in their
knowledge of operation of the systems. Systems, which cannot be satisfactorily functionally tested due to
weather conditions, are to be rescheduled at a date and time that is more advantages for testing. All Cx
team members are required to perform such seasonal testing as part of this Cx project.
CxA shall prepare and submit final Cx report documenting the Cx process up to this point.
