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. 

This course 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 to achieve this is set out in this course - starting with a clear definition of the client's requirements and ending with post-occupancy aftercare.  

By following this process buildings will be operationally ready at handover, function to user and operator requirements, and perform efficiently.

"Good, informative and well presented" David Wadge, Sir Robert McAlpine

"Very good, lots of information for future reference" Neil Davies, Bournemouth University
