Building Commissioning Technical Workshop
Tuesday and Wednesday, October 23/24
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center
1100 Fairview Ave N, Seattle, WA 98109
This Building Commissioning Technical Workshop will use the Existing Building Commissioning (EBCx) process as a mechanism to introduce and work with the technical skill set used by commissioning providers in virtually every commissioning process from New Construction Commissioning (NCx) to EBCx to Ongoing Commissioning.
The class will begin with an overview of the EBCx and NCx processes to establish a general level of understanding of the goals of a building commissioning process and thus, the framework for the rest of the class. It will then provide an overview of the technical skills used by most commissioning providers as they work on facilities.
At that point, the class will move to interactive exercises that will use a combination of three dimensional SketchUp models and field activities to expose the attendees to the application of the commissioning skill set. After working with a very simple SketchUp model with the instructor to get up to speed on using SketchUp, the instructors will lead attendees, working as teams, through scoping a virtual chilled water plant, and virtual air handling system, and a virtual condenser water system using the SketchUp models.
The model-based exercises will be supplemented with field activities in the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center mechanical spaces to reinforce and practice some of the skills the attendees have been exposed to by working with the models. Subsequently, the instructors will work interactively with the students using trend data, spreadsheets and other tools to develop selected findings in the models.
The finding development session will explore what needs to be done to investigate, implement, and verify common commissioning findings While the exercises will be specific to the opportunities observed in the models, the techniques and concepts explored will be broad-based and applicable to virtually any commissioning process.
