Commissioning - What Architects Need to Know

Commissioning has been a critical component of successful projects for decades. Today it is more important than ever with building systems becoming ever more complex and clients demanding value from their high-performance facilities.

This conference is intended for architects who want to understand the why and how of modern whole-building commissioning. Basic terms and concepts will be explained with a goal of creating an understanding of the purpose of commissioning. Specific topics of particular interest to architects such as roles and responsibilities of team members will be covered more in-depth as well as technical issues such as building envelope commissioning.

The role of the architect as the prime project leader requires that you be fully conversant with commissioning terms without having direct responsibility for specific actions. The purpose of this conference is to provide you with the tools you’ll need to understand the commissioning process from start to finish.


Rino Zan, P.Eng. is a partner and manager of the Commissioning Department at Morrison Hershfield Ltd. He has degrees in both mechanical (U of T 8T9) and electrical (U of Rome, ‘95) engineering and has over 25 years of experience as an engineer in the Canadian market.
