What You’ll Learn:

  • Mechanical, Electrical, & Plumbing (MEP) Commissioning for LEEDv4 – Jeremy Snyder, BuroHappold
    • Commissioning – a detailed process to verifying a building’s facilities and processes are running how they were designed and that they are satisfying the owner’s needs.
    • MEP Cx is very important as these mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems are the most complicated and costly in any building.
  • Envelope/Enclosure Commissioning – David Finley, Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, Inc.
    • Just as important as the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems in a building, so to is a building’s envelope – it’s shell.
    • Envelope Cx, also known as Building Enclosure Commissioning (BECx),  focuses on the flow of air, moisture, and heat into and out of a building. This type of Cx can help identify issues to occupant comfort, indoor air quality, heating or cooling losses, and moisture buildup.
  • Building Energy Modeling – Christy Cramer, CJL Engineering
    • Energy modeling – creating computer models of the energy systems and usage in a building for analysis.
    • Modeling is a great tool to understand energy usage, payback periods of different efficiency upgrades, predict monthly costs,  and can provide documentation for code compliance, green certification, and qualification for tax credits.
