Our Commissioning Manager will be available for consultation prior to commencement of any project, in order to collate method statements, produce programmes, survey the site and carry out a full design appraisal to evaluate the commissionability of each system being installed.
Following the initial evaluation and appraisal stages, our Commissioning Manager will maintain a site presence for the duration of programmed works. At this early stage, the Commissioning Manager will undertake a full commissioning feasibility study and review the mechanical services in order to identify any potential problems. Areas of concern will be brought to the attention of the Project Manager and eliminated before reaching a critical point in the programme of works.
It will be the responsibility of the Commissioning Manager to co-ordinate and programme all commissioning. A detailed Commissioning Programme will be drawn up to integrate the construction processes and to recognise all of the important interfaces and milestones.
The Commissioning Manager will collate all relevant commissioning method statements which will be reviewed to ensure that they are site specific and comply with the design specification.
During installation, periodic inspections will be carried out by the Commissioning Manager to monitor progress and to ensure that the systems are being installed in accordance with the construction drawings and specification. Once the installation has been assessed to be complete, a ‘System Complete Certificate’ will be issued to enable the commissioning team to commence their pre-commissioning checks. At this stage, it is the duty of the Commissioning Manager to ensure that all pre-commissioning checks are carried out in accordance with CIBSE codes of practice.
The commissioning of specialist plant, such as chillers, boilers and pressurisation units, would normally be undertaken by the component manufacturer. Such procedures will be co-ordinated and monitored by the Commissioning Manager. Prior to any specialist commissioning taking place, the Commissioning Manger will ensure that the manufacturers requirements have been met in order to limit problems arising and subsequently affecting the smooth running of commissioning works.
The Commissioning Manager will be responsible for issuing guidelines to manufacturers of specialist plant so that they are able to prepare and conduct training programmes which will then be used to assist in the training/instruction of any staff nominated by the client. Training related to the mechanical services of the system will be the responsibility of the Project Manager with the assistance of the Commissioning Manager.
