New Construction Commissioning (NCCx)

This course is qualified for 16 AIA/CES learning units. 

This class is designed to lead attendees through the New Construction Commissioning (NCCx) process phase by phase so that they understand the goals and benefits of commissioning (Cx) and the roles and responsibilities of all the stakeholders in the Cx process.  BCxA’s field-experienced subject matter experts lead team discussions focused on the NCCx Process, including deep dives into the How, Who, and Why of design reviews and writing functional tests.  Attendees will learn the importance of all the deliverables in the NCCx process for the owner, including:   

  • Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR)  
  • Basis of Design (BOD)  
  • Commissioning Plan  
  • Issues Log  
  • Systems Manual  
  • Final Commissioning Report 

Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx)

This course is qualified for 16 AIA/CES learning units.

Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) is an effective way to gain optimal performance and improve occupant safety and comfort in a previously built facility.  With today’s concerns with indoor air quality and other health safety issues, owners are looking for ways to keep their buildings healthy, decrease utility costs, reduce maintenance costs, and improve occupants’ working environment.  This EBCx training focuses on the What, Why, and How-To of EBCx. Participants receive comprehensive instruction on each phase of the existing building commissioning process based on BCxA’s Best Practices, taught by professionals with extensive industry experience.  In addition to understanding all the deliverables in the EBCx process, attendees will learn the importance of:

  • Identify what buildings and systems are ideal for the existing building commissioning process.
  • The benefits and goals of the EBCx process.
  • Analyzing facility performance through a systematic process that includes establishing a baseline, performing energy calculations, reviewing documentation, and conducting functional testing.
  • Build a Facility Improvement Measure (FIM)
  • Perform an Energy Calculation (and Structure an Energy Efficiency Measure (EEM))
  • Assemble Current Facilities Requirements
  • Create an EBCx Investigation Plan

Building Enclosure Commissioning Workshop

This course is qualified for 5.5 AIA/CES learning units.

This seminar introduces the Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx) process by outlining key quality-based tasks that achieve a successful building enclosure.  The seminar focuses on BECx activities from predesign to occupancy and operation.  Topics include defining the building enclosure and performance requirements, developing the Owner’s Project Requirements; creating the BECx plan; critical building science and architectural issues to address in design review and specifications; construction observation; and performance verification testing.  The seminar also describes how an Owner’s risk can be reduced by undertaking BECx, LEED V4 BECx requirements, and commissioning goals.  The intended audience includes building owners and developers, architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors, and commissioning providers.  

  • Determine the building enclosure commissioning tasks necessary to manage the risks involved in designing, constructing, using, and maintaining a building enclosure. 
  • Implement the tasks associated with the building enclosure commissioning process. 
  • Describe the performance verification testing and appropriate testing schedule for building enclosure systems and assemblies. 
  • Explain how the new requirements of LEED v4, and related industry documents impact BECx.
