To achieve this end, the means need to be clearly detailed in the commissioning specification
. Each member of the commissioning team needs to know their roles and responsibilities to properly estimate their costs and involvement.
Commissioning process involves forming a commissioning plan and commissioning specifications
that include pre functional and functional testing forms for every equipment and an Integrated System functional testing procedure that is based on the system's sequence of operations.
In the authors' practice, commissioning specifications
for design/bid/build projects are limited to performance and quality requirements for the general contractor or construction manager and the tier, trade, or subcontractors.
There will be improved commissioning specifications
from using the joint strategic needs assessment (JSNA).
The CxA coordinates commissioning during design; develops an outline of design criteria; reviews design development documents; prepares a proposed construction phase commissioning plan; develops commissioning specifications
; and reviews construction documents.
Cx Assistant also enables users to estimate commissioning costs, identify an appropriate commissioning scope, and access sample commissioning specifications
related to their construction projects.
The commissioning specifications
were contained in the document, "Commissioning of the Control System at La Belleza."
The CxA should be expected to coordinate commissioning during design; develop an outline of design criteria; review design development documents; prepare a proposed construction phase commissioning plan; develop commissioning specifications
; and review construction documents.
