Building Commissioning

BNA Consulting offers new building commissioning as a quality assurance process to verify and document that building systems function as designed and meet the operational needs of the owner and building users. Building Commissioning is the professional practice that ensures buildings are delivered according to the Owner’s Project Requirement. Buildings that are properly commissioned typically have fewer change orders, tend to be more energy efficient and have operation and maintenance costs 8 to 20 percent lower than a non-commissioned building. The cost of performing commissioning is typically paid back in less than 5 years from energy savings alone.

Informed building owners recognize that a high performance building is a key element for business success. It gives them a competitive advantage. Offices for our commissioning team include Salt Lake City and St. George Utah.

BNA Consulting also offers Retrocommissioning services. Retrocommissioning, or “existing building commissioning,” is a systematic process for identifying and implementing operational and maintenance improvements in an existing building to ensure continued good performance over time. The intent of the process is to optimize the performance of building subsystems as well as how they function together. Retrocommissioning focuses on operations and maintenance improvements and diagnostic testing, although needed capital improvements may be identified and recommended through the process.


Benefits from commissioning include:

  • Deliver buildings and construction projects that meet the owner’s project requirements
  • Prevent or eliminate problems inexpensively through proactive quality techniques which reduce the quantity and cost of change orders through the construction process
  • Verify systems are installed and working correctly and benchmark that correct operation
  • Lower overall first costs and life-cycle costs for the owner
  • Provide documentation and records on the design, construction, and testing to facilitate operation and maintenance of the facility
  • Implement trend logs, automated and semi-automated Cx tools to enable O&M staff ongoing Cx
  • Maintain facility performance for the building’s entire life cycle
  • Satisfied building occupants and tenants through improved usability, indoor air quality and thermal comfort
