Excellence in Building Commissioning, for the Spaces We Share

From its humble origin as one of humanity’s basic needs, shelter today is where we live, work, and even play. To thrive in the modern world, our families and communities need buildings that are safe, efficient, and resilient. That’s why we’re here. Since 1998, the Building Commissioning Association (BCxA) has been dedicated to raising awareness of building commissioning and empowering commissioning providers to make our shared built environment the best it can be.
