Commonly Made Commissioning Mistakes

Presentation by Johnathan Woodside, P.E., CEM, and Steven Metzgar, CxA, EMP

As project schedules continue to tighten, anxious clients shorten construction timelines to meet aggressive schedules. Since functional performance testing and final commissioning activities are performed last, they are often the first to get cut. The result? Tests are never completed, reports aren’t finalized, equipment doesn’t operate quite right and owners are left holding the bag. In this presentation, Woodside and Metzgar will highlight commonly made commissioning mistakes, presenting a case study to illustrate the perfect storm and offering advice on avoiding common problems.
