Campus Utility Systems, Part 1: Boiler Systems

Harry Koons, LEED AP/CxA – Precis Commissioning, Inc
March 9, 2020

This is the first of a 4-part webinar series on the commissioning of campus utility systems. Part 1 describes the role of the commissioning provider (CxP) in the design, procurement, installation, and performance testing of campus boiler systems.

Commissioning the boilers, deaerators and distribution system in a campus boiler system is a key requirement during design, construction, and start-up of campus central utility services. The size and complexity of these systems requires early participation of the CxP and continued involvement throughout the project.

Attendees will learn what to look for during the commissioning design review, the submittal review process, and the installation of the campus equipment and systems. This includes a focus on the distribution and tie-in requirements for campus buildings and utility users.

Part 1 of the series describes how commissioning can assure the system meets the design requirements and performance criteria, and touches upon the CxP’s responsibilities during functional and integrated system testing.

Campus Utility Systems, Part 2: Chilled Water Systems

Harry Koons, LEED AP/CxA – Precis Commissioning, Inc
April 13, 2020

This is the second of a 4-part webinar series on the commissioning of campus utility systems. Part 2 describes the role of the commissioning provider (CxP) in the design, procurement, installation, and performance testing of campus chilled water (CHW) systems.

Commissioning the chillers, cooling towers, pumps and campus chilled water distribution system is a key requirement during the design, construction, and start-up of campus central utility services. The size and complexity of these systems requires early participation of the CxP and continued involvement throughout the project.

Part 2 addresses what to look for during the commissioning design review, the submittal review process, and the installation of the campus equipment and systems. This includes a focus on the distribution and tie-in requirements for campus buildings and utility users.

This segment also touches upon the CxP’s responsibilities during functional and integrated system testing, and how commissioning can assure the system meets the design requirements and performance criteria.

Campus Utility Systems, Part 3: Emergency Power Systems

Harry Koons, LEED AP/CxA – Precis Commissioning, Inc
May 11, 2020

This is the third of a 4-part webinar series on the commissioning of campus utility systems. Part 3 describes the role of the commissioning provider (CxP) in the design, procurement, installation, and performance testing of campus emergency power systems.

Commissioning the generators, fuel systems, transfer switches and the power distribution system is a key requirement during the design, construction, and start-up of campus central utility services. The size and complexity of these systems requires early participation of the CxP and continued involvement throughout the project.

This third webinar in the 4-part series describes the role of the CxP in the design, procurement, installation, and performance testing of campus emergency power systems.

This webinar touches on what to look for during the commissioning design review, during the submittal review process, and during the installation of the campus equipment and systems. This includes a focus on the distribution and tie-in requirements for campus buildings and emergency power users.

Part 3 also addresses the CxP’s responsibilities during functional and integrated system testing, and how commissioning can assure the system meets the design requirements and performance criteria.

Campus Utility Systems, Part 4: Utility Services Integrated System Test

David Cohen, P.E., CCP, DCEP Grumman/Butkus Associates
Harry Koons, LEED AP/CxA – Precis Commissioning, Inc
June 8, 2020

This is the fourth of a 4-part webinar series on the commissioning of campus utility systems. The previous three webinars reviewed the commissioning of boiler systems, chilled water systems, and power distribution systems from early design through functional testing.

Part 4 describes the role of the commissioning provider (CxP) in the design, procurement, installation, and performance testing for campus utility services integrated system testing (IST).

The Integrated System Test is the final step of commissioning functional performance testing to validate the operation and complete functionality of critical campus utility systems. The IST is completed after all systems have been tested individually and are operating per the Owner’s Project Requirements. The IST validates that all of the systems work together during different types of operating modes, system loads, and failures.

This webinar describes when in the process the IST procedure should be written, who should be involved, how to perform the test, and potential issues that could occur during the test.


Recorded Webinars

Sometimes it’s just not convenient to attend a live webinar. If you cannot attend at the scheduled time you can now purchase recorded webinars at a later date. New recorded webinars are added after each scheduled session. Your purchased webinar will be available to you for 30 days. Continuing education credits are available after successfully completing a 10 question quiz before signing off.
