Retro-Commissioning vs. Ongoing Commissioning [infographic]Sep 20, 2013
Retro-commissioning and ongoing commissioning go hand-in-hand when it comes to improving building energy efficiency. Whether you use one or both — and to what degree — largely depends on the nature of your facilities and your overall goals.
Retro-commissioning is an interactive process between building engineers and a commissioning agent, using data analysis and field-based observations to determine how a building is functioning and how systems can be improved. Ongoing commissioning, on the other hand, is systematic continuous evaluation of a building’s systems.
See the infographic below for a brief comparison of Retro-Commissioning vs. ongoing commissioning.
