WPL Publishing soon will host a webinar to help professionals within the construction industry understand and address the commissioning of Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) projects.

Building commissioning is a holistic process spanning from pre-design planning to post-construction operation and serving as a checks-and-balances system to provide a collaborative process for planning, delivering, and operating buildings that work as intended. Architects, engineers, construction managers, LEED consultants, trades, and clients must work alongside commissioning agents to ensure that owner project requirements are met. Understanding the role of commissioning can make this cooperation much more effective regarding the time efficiency and financial and technical performance of a project. Commissioning is an integral and required component of LEED certification, necessitating an understanding of its role in the LEED certification process by all stakeholders in the design, construction, and occupancy timeline of a LEED-certified project. The webinar is designed to help facilitate such an understanding of commissioning. To register for the 90-minute event, which will take place Wednesday, June 12, 2013, at 1:00 p.m. (EDT), visit http://tinyurl.com/ntc5ezr.

Webinar attendees will be able to comprehend the value of commissioning for any building project. The event will focus on the financial case for commissioning, the roles and responsibilities of key players, implementation of commissioning with an integrated design process, and the integral role of commissioning in LEED certification. The program will include a detailed discussion about the following:

  • The benefits of commissioning a building.
  • The role and impact of commissioning on the LEED certification process.
  • How to connect roles and responsibilities of key players in the design, construction, and occupancy planning to the commissioning process.
  • How to implement commissioning within an integrated design process.

Addressing webinar attendees will be Green Building Services Senior Commissioning Consultant Doug Crombie, an engineer with more than 20 years of experience in the building and construction industry, working on mechanical heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems. His field experience working in air, hydronic, and control systems testing has formed his holistic approach to integrating building systems. His working background has shaped his integrated approach to building commissioning, which ensures all building systems are working together as designed and operated. He is experienced in using trend and data logging to analyze building performance in various building types, including healthcare, institutional, commercial, and industrial structures.

Following Mr. Crombie’s presentation, there will be an interactive 10-to-15 minute question-and-answer session addressing relevant topics.
