Whole-life value is ultimately a function of how well a building and its engineering systems perform and whether this can be sustained over the long-term. However, there is often a gap between client expectations, design intent and delivered performance. Many buildings are handed over in a state of poor operational readiness.

Management of the Commissioning Process will provide delegates with the knowledge to improve building control, energy use, equipment reliability, system durability, occupant comfort, worker productivity and environmental impact.and enhance project delivery through management of the commissioning process. The 8 stage process will start with a clear definition of the client's requirements and end with post-occupancy aftercare and in turn lead to buildings that:

  • are operationally ready at handover
  • function to user and operator requirements
  • perform efficiently in use


The aim of the course is to enable Built Environment professionals to produce better buildings through improved management of the commissioning process. These better buildings will be operationally ready at handover, function in accordance with user and operator requirements and perform efficiently in use.

On completion of this course, delegates will be able to:

  • Recognise the crucial role that the construction industry needs to play in producing better business, social and environmental performance outcomes for the UK
  • Describe the 8-stage project process that will help the construction industry produce better performance outcomes in the Built Environment
  • Understand that commissioning management is a quality assurance process that starts at project inception and continues through the life of a building
  • State why commissioning management plays a vital role in the delivery of successful construction projects
  • Identify the purpose of the commissioning management process at each of the eight stages in the delivery of a construction project
  • Evaluate if their company's approach to management of the commissioning process supports the delivery of better performance outcomes on construction projects
  • Apply an improved approach to management of the commissioning process on their construction projects
