As costs to build, renovate and maintain buildings rise, energy efficiency is more important than ever. More owners want buildings that operate at peak performance and save energy. They also want assurance that new construction or renovations meet their performance and energy requirements. That’s where the Building Commissioning Association (BCA) comes in. Building commissioning provides documented confirmation that building systems function in accordance with the owner’s operational needs. Although the commissioning industry is still a young one, it is vital to increasing building performance standards and helping owners save energy.
In New York, commissioning providers are in demand. With funding support from NYSERDA, the BCA is providing the outreach, training and education necessary to meet that demand. The BCA provides training and certification as an Associate Commissioning Professional (ACP) and Certified Commissioning Professional (CCP), which provides credibility and a competitive edge in this growing field. Because the commissioning industry is not regulated, ACP and CCP certifications are a quality benchmark for those hiring commissioning providers. NYSERDA and the BCA also work together to build awareness of the commissioning industry among building owners, facility managers, architects and construction managers.
