    Join us for a joint informational meeting with the Board of the South West Region the Building Commissioning Association (BCA).

     Building Commissioning has made its way into the building codes, it continues to have an impact on the projects we support and the final deliverable to our building owners. We need to be aware of the impact(s) to our projects, identify them early and understand some of industry best practices to adequately advise our owners and scale our efforts in interacting with Commissioning. ASHRAE Standard 202 outlines the commissioning process but it is not often fully embraced by all owners, projects or providers.

     Come hear about the most current trends in Building Commissioning from industry experts. Our panel discussion explores the roles, and interactions of the Cx Authority and Design Engineer. You’ll hear from certified professionals how the BCA approaches the commissioning life cycle and hopefully leave with a better understanding of the goals and intentions of commissioning professionals that you’ll continue to interact with.  Fundamentally, how we work together to achieve an energy efficient well run building and happy owners.
