Building Services and their Commissioning

Building Services engineering brings a building to life, have a profound impact on different aspects of building performance such as end-user satisfaction, environmental impact, maintenance and utilities cost, as well as business continuity. In the modern built environment, clients require their projects to be delivered on time and within budget. Clients also want assets to be operationally-ready at handover, facilities that perform to suit their required function and buildings with high levels of performance over the long-term. A correctly executed commissioning process for Building Services is crucial to achieving these outcomes.
This course will discuss the different Building Services in projects, what the commissioning process is, why it is important and how the commissioning process could be executed at each stage of project delivery. Prefabricated Building Services elements for improved productivity will also be shared.

At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
1. Understand the tools available for planning, monitoring and delivery of Building Services
2. Learn how offsite manufacture and the use of prefabricated Building Services elements can help improve productivity
3. Explain what management of the commissioning process is and how it is put into practice on a construction project
