Building Commissioning Checklist

A building commissioning checklist aims to assess the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and building envelope systems and perform retro-commissioning as needed. Use this checklist to determine if the efficiency of existing equipment and systems of a building should be improved and create corrective actions that send and receive real-time notifications when complete, in progress, or still to do.
