What is Continuous Commissioning?

Definition

Continuous Commissioning, or Monitoring-based Commissioning, uses technology to mine savings from a stream of data from equipment and building systems.

Why it Matters

Continuous commissioning has proved to be an effective approach to delivering verifiable savings for commercial real estate operators. Real-time monitoring of equipment uncovers faults and inefficiencies on an ongoing basis, instead of periodically with traditional retro commissioning.

Continuous commissioning combines real-time data collection with automated analysis techniques to uncover anomalies. Many operational teams are resistant to raw data, however sophisticated, because they lack the time, skills, and/or budget to takeaction on the information.

More recent continuous building commissioning software programs have focused on delivering specific, actionable insights to enable building operators to gain benefits from continuous commissioning without changing their normal roles and responsibilities.
