Many of the sustainable construction guidelines require building commissioning because it's considered a best proactive an often saves energy consumption by verifying installation and calibration of complex systems.
Buildings affect our environment in an astonishing number of ways – consuming energy and resources for operation, expending material resources for construction, and destroying virgin land. Since our built environment is constantly expanding and redeveloping, responsible professionals should consider the total impact that a building project will have for its entire life expectancy. Designing and constructing using sustainable best practices minimize the negative impacts of building construction.
We believe that a Green Building is one that is designed and built to be an enduring part of a connected community. Green Buildings must be functional for their use and adaptable for other uses; economical to operate; judicious in energy usage; constructed of wisely chosen materials; and pleasing to inhabit. This means that sustainable design and construction should be much more than a compilation of environmentally friendly materials and unconventional plumbing fixtures. They must perform and endure.
Regardless whether a building project is new construction or renovation, without documenting the impact the project has on the environment, the value of the innovations and improvements will be unrealized. By following third party guidelines and certification processes, such as the LEED rating system and Energy Star, the project can demonstrate its sustainability to owners, investors, municipal planners, and occupants in a meaningful and comparative way.
