Commissioning of buildings and building services is vitally important to the safe and energy efficient operation of buildings but it is not always carried out - or carried out systematically. The effective operation of any water system is dependent on satisfactory circuit balancing and commissioning. This in turn requires adequate attention to commissioning requirements during the design of the system, and a clear specification of requirements. CIBSE Commissioning Codes set out clearly and systematically the steps required to commission buildings and building services in a proper and timely manner. This key step in the life of the building enables the system to operate as it was designed to do, and, coupled with good maintenance practice, helps provide building occupiers with a safe, good quality, comfortable internal environment delivered energy efficiently. This edition of Commissioning Code W is based on the 1994 edition. The revision reflects the introduction of requirements for commissioning into Part L of the Building Regulations. The opportunity has also been taken to reflect the growing awareness that many key decisions relating to the construction process are taken in the very early stages of a project. The Code therefore gives the strongest encouragement to designers and clients to consider commissioning and to seek suitably qualified specialist input at the earliest stages of a project. CIBSE Commissioning Code W represents current standards of good commissioning practice presented in the form of recommendations and guidance which are generally accepted in the building services industry. The Code acknowledges that it may be applied in a variety of contractual frameworks. Users will need to ensure that the use of the Code is considered when contractual arrangements are being made, to ensure that the recommendations of the Code are not in conflict with those of the contract.
