12.   Building Commissioning Guide

For all newly constructed nonresidential buildings, commissioning shall be included in the design and construction process of the project to verify that the building’s energy systems and components meet the owner’s or owner representative’s project requirements. For buildings less than 10,000 square feet, only the Design Phase Design Review requirements (see Section 12.4) and Commissioning Measures Shown in the Construction Documents (see Section 12.5) shall be completed.

Note: For hotel/motel or high-rise residential buildings that are considered mixed-use, the occupancies designated as nonresidential shall comply with these commissioning requirements when applicable.
