Building Retro Commissioning - Making Your Building Simpler, More Comfortable, and More Efficient
Building Retro Commissioning provides a great opportunity to positively reset the building operation in a way that improves comfort and reduces energy use while addressing health concerns in the building. The process of looking at Owner's Project Requirements as they change over time and the Basis of Design is examined in two cases, and practical advice is provided to create a framework to move through the process. We examine a financial model that looks at implementing changes in a cost effective manner, and we also look at an analysis method for examining alternative solutions.
