An operational building is achieved through the collaborative efforts of the project team whose expertise is integrated to create both a built space and an operational system.
This requires integration at every level of the design and execution process. Poorly integrated testing and commissioning processes can lead to negative outcomes for the operation, performance, energy consumption and longevity of a building. As well as the health, wellbeing and comfort of its occupants.
This course assists design and building practitioners to exercise greater collaboration, within their roles, to enable better-integrated testing and commissioning processes through the lifecycle of a design project. It covers both the integration of testing and commissioning into a design and the integration of testing and commissioning of multiple systems in concurrent operation.
You’ll learn about:
- the benefits of systems coordination through integrated testing and commissioning within the design process
- applicable Australian Standards
- practical, project-based resources to improve capability in the workplace
This course is delivered in partnership with Office of the NSW Building Commissioner.
