LEED BD+C: New Construction | v2 - LEED 2.0

Additional commissioning

EAc3 | Possible 1 point


Verify and ensure that the entire building is designed, constructed and calibrated to operate as intended.


In addition to the Fundamental Building Commissioning prerequisite, implement the following additional commissioning tasks:

  1. Conduct a focused review of the design prior to the construction documents phase.
  2. Conduct a focused review of the Construction Documents when close to completion.
  3. Conduct a selective review of contractor submittals of commissioned equipment. (The above three reviews must be performed by a firm other than the designer.)
  4. Develop a recommissioning management manual.
  5. Have a contract in place for a near-warranty end or post occupancy review.
