What is the BCA?

The Building Commissioning Association is a non-profit professional membership organization focused exclusively on total building commissioning and advancing high standards of performance in commercial buildings.

The primary purpose of the BCA is to offer professional development, technical training and education on current best practices to commissioning providers, associated professions and trades. The BCA supports stringent principles for testing and a high bar for certification of commissioning authorities. BCA officers and members provide leadership within the building industry, and participate directly at regional and national levels of stakeholder collaboration in pursuit of a better built environment.

Our Focus

The BCA is committed to supporting its members in the following areas:

Best Practices: We help define and identify building commissioning best practices, review industry standards and prepare and continuously update commissioning documentation for handbooks, promotion, field use, stakeholder knowledge & industry acceptance.

Professional Development: We create, implement and support education, training, and workforce development for all commissioning stakeholders.

Promotion and Collaboration: We create, implement and participate in programs and events that engage the BCA in way that positively affects the role of commissioning in the built environment with selected liaisons and marketing opportunities.

Leadership and Representation: We advance commissioning in the built environment by engaging with other industry stakeholders in facilitating and leading high-level discussions regarding the important topics related to commissioning.

• Certification: We promote high standards of certifications as administered by the BCCB and provide support to them as they meet the needs of the stakeholders of the built environment.

Association Membership: We grow and nurture active local, national and international membership by listening and providing them with requested programs and education.


Why Sponsor the BCA?

The next few years are likely to be more challenging and complex than ever before for members of the building industry. Increased pressure to integrate improved tools and building materials with new and existing methods will challenge designers, constructors and building operations professionals alike. A host of hot issues are driving the building industry forward – “2020” and “2030” policies, codes and standards at the state and federal levels, market trends and technology innovations, and higher expectations for performance and professional consistency. At the same time, new market forecasts for financing large-scale energy efficiency projects are opening the door for capital that has been locked up during recent years. As a result, the need for commissioning in the face of so many changes increases exponentially.

Right now, a fresh generation of professionals is poised to enter the building industry. Our job is to make sure that commissioning authorities and specialists in building performance are prepared to meet – and coordinate – this array of key challenges.

We invite you to participate in the growth of this industry by sponsoring the BCA for 2014.
Sponsors enjoy significant market exposure to 8,500+ readers and viewers through ads in BCA publications, visibility during BCA webinars, a continuous BCA web presence and participation in BCA-sponsored events.
