BCxA has partnered with Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) to update the 2009 Evan Mills study on the value of building commissioning. This update enriches statistical evidence validating the economic and market value that commissioning delivers.

This presentation provides a summary of the results of the study based on information provided by hundreds of commissioning providers and utility programs. Anticipated study results include:

• Economic cost/benefit results for new construction, existing building, and ongoing commissioning.
• The degree to which commissioning is involved in the design and construction process.
• The impact of commissioning on the performance of buildings.
• Market trends in the commissioning industry.
