We Get It: The Commissioning Process Can Be Complicated

As the leader in commissioning, CxPlanner knows the Cx process can be complicated. It feels like there are hundreds of moving parts and innumerable tasks to complete in exacting detail.

There are contractors, subcontractors, and building personnel to coordinate. Every mechanism, sensor, and device needs inspection. There is also the project owner, whose requirements set the baseline for the entire testing process.

Organizing it all can feel overwhelming!

But We Broke Down the Cx Process in the Simplest Way Possible

We noticed that the Cx industry was facing some organizational and tactical challenges. CxPlanner founder and CEO Thomas Toftgaard Jarloev needed to do something about it.

He wrote A Practical Guide to the Commissioning Process.

This book empowers the CxA, commissioning team, and project owner to better understand the commissioning process and how it works. The guide is broken down by the phases of a construction project, from pre-design all the way through occupancy and operations. It truly is the definitive source on commissioning process performance.

Informative. Insightful. Relatable.

A Practical Guide to the Commissioning Process is the tool every commissioning professional needs to improve their processes. This book provides:

  • Usable examples based on real projects. Cx teams can use these cases in their Cx applications.
  • An education and training textbook used by universities, certifying bodies, and major companies in the Cx industry.
  • Energy-efficient, green building guidance that conforms with ASHRAE and LEED standards and guidelines, helping project owners meet and exceed compliance.

Chart Your Course to Organization, Compliance, and Efficiency

With this book, you'll gain an intimate understanding of the commissioning process. It serves as guidance on the methods, order, and other details required to carry out a high-quality commissioning project.

The methods and tools highlighted in the text ensure that your commissioning activities meet all of the most popular, leading agency's standards, including:

  • American guideline ASHRAE Guideline 0-2019
  • American standard for commissioning ASHRAE Standard 202-2018
  • Danish standard for commissioning DS 3090-2014

This book also contains a practical guide and explanation of the commissioning tools used in commissioning. Using Copenhagen Airport's in-house commissioning process as the case study, you'll learn how to use the tools included in standards and guidelines, as well as additional methods and applications to streamline your commissioning activities.

Guidance for the Cx Scope and Specifications

Not only will this guide serve you throughout the commissioning process, but it also serves as a handy control tool to carry you through the specification and contract stages.

A Practical Guide to the Commissioning Process follows a practical structure. Readers can use each section to determine the commissioning services when developing contracts with design teams and contractors, as well as the commissioning provider.

While it does not serve as a contract or agreement document, Cx professionals can adapt this guide's contents to their current projects.

Expanding Awareness and Understanding of Commissioning

The construction industry still struggles with the commissioning process. Very often, Cx teams carry out processes that don't comply with modern standards and requirements. Also, the very tools these teams use are mishandled and applied incorrectly. And there aren't many resources or documents available to unveil and conquer these challenges.

That's why this easy-to-use guide is so essential in modern commissioning.

This book explains exactly how to handle individual commissioning activities, the related documents, and the tools required. It sets the definitive standard for the commissioning process and serves as a beacon to attract more people to the world of commissioning.

Book reviews from the commissioning community

Global Director Commissioning at AESG

Ole Teisen februar

Commissioning Energy Bundle No. 1 in the Kingdom of Denmark, Thomas Toftgaard Jarløv, has commissioned a handbook on the Commissioning process for buildings, and it is good!

There are descriptions for all stakeholders, whether you are a builder, investor, operator, contractor, project architect or engineer, then there is an overview of your role in the Commissioning process, from contract writing, over scrutiny and testing to user training and documentation. The book relates Commissioning to the new phase divisions with tender project and execution project as well as the new agreement documents, ABR18, YBB19 and others.

Few have as much experience with Commissioning as Thomas, and in this book he generously shares everything he has put together, not least during 4½ years at the helm of Commissioning at one of Denmark's largest builders, Copenhagen Airports.

In addition to writing books and handling Commissioning at both strategic and operational levels at the airport, Thomas has developed a software portal, CxPlanner, to handle the Commissioning process.

I do not know how Thomas overcomes all this, but it is no wonder that this particular book is full of tips and tricks for #Commissioning and is written with an infectious commitment and interest in the noble art.
