Comfortably paced presentation focusing on important changes to commissioning. My only beef with this is that the "real world examples" used - photos showing dreadful MEP work - actually represent commissioning failures. Effective commissioning prevents junk like this from being built in the first place by catching it in the design process and by ensuring that qualified contractors are engaged for the work.

Senior Commissioning Consultant, Green Building Services, Inc.

Thanks for your comment. My intent with the examples was to show 'the failures and issues' and explain why the Cx process is important to the built environment.

mechanical and stiff and sounded like it was being read. dry topic needs someone to deliver it with more dynamics. that way we will stay awake and he won't need to review what he said repeatedly and repeatedly. this was very low end training.
